#SoBeWFF ‘s Trucks on the Beach 2012 Recap & Results

It’s been almost 2 1/2 years since the first wave of these new fangled food trucks hit South Florida. Last night the South Beach Wine & Food Festival’s closing party, entitled Trucks on the Beach and hosted by Andrew Zimmern cemented their ever-growing popularity. Most people thought they’d never see the day when the trucks would be at South Beach.

If you read Burger Beast enough you’ll know I’m involved with the trucks and organize a few events every month including Arts Park in Hollywood, Magic City Casino, Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood, and Tobacco Road. It was truly a great moment for them to finally be featured at a South Beach Wine & Food Festival. All I can hope is everyone who attended had a great time.

The menu for Trucks on the Beach is below and then check out pics of the food, trucks, and event. Congratulations to Ms. Cheezious on winning “Best Food Truck” at Trucks on the Beach.
