Grill ‘Em All, ranked 14th, serves some of the best burgers around with a heavy metal vibe that’s hard not to like. Number 12 on the list, the Buttermilk Truck serves breakfast all day, and foodies everywhere can’t get enough of their red velvet pancakes. Los Angeles’ top ranked food truck, Koji BBQ – ranking number 2 overall – brings the best Korean BBQ taco around.
New York City ranks third in overall best food trucks. Coming in at number 11, Schnitzel and Things features the Bratwurst, a German pork sausage oven-roasted to perfection.
