Food trucks are all the rage across the country, and with a vast amount of land space to cover, L.A. food trucks are some of the finest in the country. If you want to experience the culinary delights of L.A.’s food truck scene with your family — which might include gourmet fish tacos, decadent desserts, Korean specialties, stick-to-your-ribs BBQ, breakfast items, and so much more — you first have to find them. Since LA trucks can’t remain in one location for any extended period of time, take advantage of these food truck events for maximum food truck potential.

If you are looking for a specific truck on a non-event night, follow it on Twitter or check out www.findlafoodtrucks.com, where they compile all the current Twitter updates on LA trucks giving you up-to-the-minute information on finding your favorite food. Bon appétit!
