Is your mouth watering yet?
The fleet of food trucks in Wichita feature creative menus and are easy to discover. You’ll find them parked outside businesses and taking part in markets, fairs, festivals and special events throughout the area nearly every day of the week during warm weather months.
The best way to track a food truck in Wichita is through its social media accounts, where you’ll find menus and schedules. If you’re not sure what truck you want to follow, you can find a directory of food trucks on the local blog Wichita by E.B. and on the Wichita Food Truck Coalition website you’ll see photos, menus and links to online outlets for about 20 food truckers who belong to the coalition.
