The MFTA consists of several dozen local food trucks, and was formed to help the food truckers synchronize their whereabouts, work with the city to open up new places to operate, establish a social media presence to inform the public and organize the weekly rodeos.
A so-called food truck rodeo is basically a gathering of two or more food trucks in one spot so that customers can have a choice of vendors to pick from. Berger said the Overton Park version likely will be the smaller one, with maybe two or three trucks, and the Shelby Farms version will have three or four.
Stuffed Food Truck is doing it right. Their menu is limited to burgers, empanadas, a few sides and a dessert empanada. It’s not a bad thing – by narrowing their options and not trying to replicate a full-scale restaurant on wheels, they’re able to serve the food quickly.
Many students and faculty are satisfied with this new addition and are excited to have new options to choose from. Special Projects Coordinator for Student Affairs Lindsey Bray tweeted after visiting La Lola Loca about her experience and her anticipation of what is to come in the future.

Court Square in Downtown Memphis was invaded with food trucks Friday afternoon, as the Food Network filmed “The Great Food Truck Race.”
I follow Fuel on Facebook and when I saw that they were adding the tacos to their menu for Cinco de Mayo, I called Warren and insisted we go for dinner.
Good news for those of you who love food on wheels: the city council passed the ordinance that lifts restrictions on food trucks. I’m looking forward to mobile tacos in Memphis soon.
