For a fun experience dining out this summer, try one of the regularly scheduled food truck events in the Reno area.

These food truck gatherings are in the evening around dinner time and give you a chance to choose from among a huge variety of quality eats. Depending on which event you attend and which trucks are in attendance, you might be able to get pizza, grilled cheese sandwiches, Mexican food, Oriental dishes, BBQ, burgers, seafood, ice cream, drinks (both soft and adult), and lots more.

Food truck gatherings have other attractions besides food and drink. For example, Reno Street Food in Idlewild Park is next to the big playground for the kids and not far from the station for the Idlewild Park train ride.

You will also see food trucks set up to serve hungry people at numerous other events and activities throughout the year. To learn more about the scheduled summer and fall events, refer to “Food Trucks and Food Truck Events in Reno and Sparks.”
