Food Truck Season


Spring is Rolling In: It’s Food Truck Season!

Far from the stereotypical “roach coaches” you might be familiar with, Lancaster County’s food trucks are offering the best in upscale cuisine with the novelty of a food truck! Following the trend seen in larger cities like Los Angeles, Chicago and Philadelphia, the area’s food trucks are a common site every day on the city streets.

While winter weather might be keeping you inside, take heart! Spring is on its way and with warmer days ahead it’s time to explore downtown Lancaster and enjoy the great food offered by some of the city’s best—and smallest—eateries.

  • HotBox BBQ: Pulled pork, brisket, ribs are all standards but the daily specials are out of this world.  Burnt end cheesesteak, smoked mac and cheese, twice cooked ribs – are you hungry?!
  • Chellas Arepa Kitchen:  Those who’ve taken their taste buds on a trip to the southern hemisphere are blown away by the unique tastes and sensations. We put pride into every meal prepared in our kitchen and use only quality ingredients – something that makes a big difference when it comes to taste. We want every Pennsylvanian to be able to gather and enjoy our food: That’s why all of our meals are completely gluten-free, and we offer options for vegans and vegetarians. So come on by our little island and try something new – you’ll be glad you did.
  • Oola Bowls: Oola Bowls began serving its customers out of an old, small trailer-turned-food truck. Owners Joe and Brock had bigger dreams fulfilled when they had the opportunity to open their first Oola Bowls stand at the oldest market in the United States, Lancaster Central Market. Now, 4 years later, Oola Bowls has 1 food truck, 3 food stands, and 1 storefront location, with plans for many more!
  • Souvlaki Boys: The authentic Greek restaurant made mobile, vegetarian and vegan options are their specialty.
