The Charleston food scene is top notch these days, and not all of the establishments turning out amazing food are in brick and mortar buildings. Some of the best food in Charleston comes from the many food trucks that roam the city. No matter what kind of food you’re in the mood for, there’s probably a truck that serves it. When you’re out and about, keep a look out for the best food trucks in Charleston.
Platia Greek Food Truck
As the name suggests, Platia serves Greek and Mediterranean food. Parked between King and Spring on weekend nights and popping up at other spots throughout the week, Platia is a great place to get a gyro, souvlaki, or falafel.
Bac’n Me Crazy
If bacon is your favorite ingredient in most recipes, then you need to seek out Bac’n Me Crazy. They have many bacon centered dishes including the triple bacon burger, salads featuring bacon wrapped chicken strips and bacon vinaigrette, and a BLT with pimento cheese and bacon aioli. For dessert try the bacon brownie or the chocolate dipped bacon.
This Japanese influenced food truck has amazing bowls. Diners love the OG Bowl and rave about the Karrage Don, a bowl featuring Japanese fried chicken, shaved cabbage, lemon mayo, egg, and sushi rice. If you like things on the spicy side, then try the Karrage Don with hot chicken.
Just Eat This!
The brains behind one of the best food trucks in Charleston, Chef Chris, is also a personal chef and caterer. But no matter what setting people experience his food in, they have rave reviews. From the food truck, the most popular dishes are the chicken and waffles and the short rib poutine.
The motto for this Charleston food truck is “put some sriracha on your sombrero,” highlighting the truck’s Latin and Asian fusion. Pork belly tacos, duck confit ramen, pork belly Pad Thai, and duck has are among their specialties. And if you follow them on social media, you’ll get their secret menu posted daily.
Roti rolls is definitely one of the best food trucks in Charleston. Their roti rolls are filled with fresh local ingredients that compliment each other perfectly. If you go to the farmer’s market on Saturday morning be sure to get a Wakey Bakey.
The Immortal Lobster
Just as the name of this stellar Charleston food truck suggests, the star of the show here is lobster. You can get lobster rolls two ways: Maine, served cold with mayo or Connecticut served warm with butter. Other specialties include lobster grilled cheese and lobster bisque.
If you’ve heard about Crave’s life changing mac and cheese and you want to try it for yourself, then track down Mac Daddy. This mobile version of the Mt. Pleasant eatery serves the famous cheesy noodles with different toppings throughout the Charleston area.
