From a gourmet mac ‘n cheese truck to a retro burrito bus, food trucks have slowly been taking over the Pittsburgh food scene gracing streets, parks, and community events with their drool-worthy eats. So naturally, a food truck park was born and it was a truly genius idea.
Seated right off the riverfront in Millvale, The Pittsburgh Food Truck Park is home to rotating food trucks, a beer garden, picnic tables, and lots of lawn games for your post-munching, mid-drinking entertainment.
The schedule of food trucks is constantly changing, so if you’re a picky eater you’re definitely going to want to scope out the calendar and plan to go on a day where the food options are to your liking. You’ll usually find 3 trucks in the park at a time. Oh, and I should mention there’s a morning and evening shift so pay extra close attention to the schedule. Pro Foodie Tip: Don’t wait too late in the evening to hit up the truck you’ve been scoping out. The trucks often sell out– proof The Burgh is really becoming a true foodie city.
If you’re looking for a low-key spot to get together with some of your best buds, the park is an awesome spot to spend a casual night snacking and sipping on beer. The bar has tons of local drafts. (The website says 30.)
A vintage trailer dishing out hot mini donuts? My actual dream come true. Whether you’re looking for a sweet breakfast, a mid-day snack, or you’re just filling a craving, Sinkers & Suds Food Truck’s donuts are FIRE. (Insert 100 fire emojis)
These little guys come in a variety of flavors, but if you’re feeling adventurous you can build-your-own and pick different combos of icing and toppings. The S’mores flavor looked mighty fine, but I choose to keep it simple and went with a basic chocolate frosted option. And I didn’t regret it!
They often hit up the Pittsburgh Food Truck Park, but follow their Facebook page to check out (read stalk) where they’ll be.
There’s really not much else to say other than JUST DO IT.
