A Complete Guide to Broward, Palm Beach, and Miami Food Trucks -- UPDATED

We've updated the thread this week with some menu images, external links and reviews, and new trucks. Check it out. 

There's nothing as tasty as nabbing a taco from a converted laundry truck at 2 in the morning, splashing it with fiery-red salsa, and popping the whole thing in your mouth with glee. Or hopping down the street on your lunch break to grab a gourmet burger on the go for just $5. Thanks to South Florida's ever-growing fleet of food trucks, more of us are doing just that. We're eating our meals on plastic patio furniture and leaning over the trunks of our cars. We're huddled in the corner of parking lots scarfing hot dogs and taking BBQ to go from bright-red trailers. And it tastes fantastic. The problem is, you just gotta know where to get it.

With so many new trucks cropping up all across Broward, Miami, and Palm Beach, it can be hard to keep track of them all -- let alone figure out when each is showing up and where. So we decided it was high time to create an ultimate encyclopedia of South Florida food trucks. This one-stop shop list will list each truck, its cuisine type, its hours, and its location. We'll continually update the list and vet each location personally. By the time we're done, we'll have the most comprehensive catalog of mobile eats in SoFla.

Of course, to do so, we need your food truck suggestions. Tell us in

the comments where you've sighted mobile vittles and we'll update the

post accordingly. Just be sure to include location, name, and times (if

possible). If you've got a phone number or website, all the better. Only have a

name and location? No worries -- post that too, and we'll work on the full scoop for you.
