Food Trucks Roll Into Airports and Show No Signs of Slowing Down

Food Trucks Roll Into Airports and Show No Signs of Slowing Down

Food trucks

Food trucks are certainly nothing new. We have loved them the past couple centuries as they took over our streets in the form of food carts, Weiner Mobiles, ice cream trucks, and fine dining on wheels. Our dedication to food trucks was solidified in 2014 with the creation of the National Food Truck Association. Now we have upped the ante as food trucks have started rolling into some of our favorite airports.

This is perfect for travelers who want to experience local food during a layover but don’t have enough time to leave the airport. Similar to airports that feature local artists, each airport’s food truck scene emulates the culinary and cultural essence of its city.

John F. Kennedy International Airport

JFK‘s Terminal 4 is the home to the Five Borough Food Hall – a food truck amalgam featuring varying cuisines. It’s a condensed resemblance to the food selection and diversity of NYC. Options include tacos, gyros, noodles, bagels, and a full-service bar.

Portland International Airport

The food carts located in the Clocktower Plaza in PDX offer Mexican, pizza, and Korea-Mexican fusion dishes. Poblano Peppers and Al Forno Ferruzza are both family owned and operated, while Korean Twist uses family recipes throughout its meu.

Austin-Bergstrom International Airport

As of April, AUS‘s new South Terminal has been in business. While it is small and remote from the airport’s main terminal, the South Terminal has plenty to offer travelers. The outdoor patio is where you can sit and watch the planes take off. It’s also where you will find the Stacked Sliders food truck.

Minneapolis–Saint Paul International Airport

Food Truck Alley opened up in Concourse E of MSP this summer. The participating restaurants – Red Cow, Salty Tart and, Holy Land – are Twin City favorites. Food Truck Alley also provides rustic seating and ambiance that will make you forget you’re in an airport.

How To: Last Minute Airport Holiday Gift Guide

The holidays are about being around the ones you love and gift giving is what keeps them around. (Totally kidding. Kind of.) Flying around the holidays is a nuisance but luckily airports essentially double as a mall where you can purchase the last few items on your shopping list.

We have curated a gift guide based on the shops in the Nashville International Airport; however, it can also work as a template for other airports!
