GREENSBORO, N.C. — Food trucks took over the Spring Garden Street for Greensboro’s first ever Food Truck Festival as hundreds of hungry people waited in long lines Sunday afternoon to grab a bite to eat.
From sausages to sandwiches, the 16 food trucks had people’s cravings taken care of. The majority of the food trucks were from the Durham area but some, like El Azteca were local.
There’s been a lot of talk over whether food trucks should be allowed to set up in downtown Greensboro.
Starting in October, the city is allowing food trucks to be on Commerce Place in downtown Greensboro for lunch and dinner for a two month trial period.
El Azteca is excited to give the downtown area a try.
“The community wants it that’s no question anymore,” says Dean Osborne, an El Azteca employee.
The food trucks will have to follow the same rules restaurants do even though they do their business on the street.
Several of the food trucks had to call it an early night because they ran out of food.
Customers and food trucks agree the festival was so popular and it just goes to prove that Greensboro is catching on to the food truck craze.
