10. Skillets

Feel like trying something new for breakfast or brunch? Skillets is a fun addition to the food truck scene in Salt Lake, featuring homestyle food with a Venezuelan twist. You can’t go wrong with the tater tot skillet or the breakfast burrito, featuring their signature Venezualan shredded steak that melts in your mouth. Skillets made us ask ourselves why we don’t we eat steak and tater tots for breakfast more often. Permanently parked across from another brunch favorite, Sweet Lake Biscuits & Limeades, you can count on Skillets for a comforting yet flavorful breakfast or lunch. They also have great gluten-free and vegetarian options, so this is a great spot for a group with different dietary restrictions.

Papito Moe’s is a Puerto Rican Food truck that is one of the best food trucks in Salt Lake City, hands down. You’ve never had flavors like this before, and you’ll be pleasantly surprised that so much flavor can be somehow perfectly balanced. We recommend trying one of their grub bowls featuring your choice of meat, rice, and plantains. You can’t go wrong with their pernil bowl, featuring garlic and herb-seasoned roast pork shoulder, or the camarones al ajillo bowl feating pan-seared shrimp cooked in their signature garlic sauce. The arroz con gandules, a flavorful yellow rice, and the maduros, sweet, fried, plantains make excellent sides to your choice of meat. If you are looking to try something new, we urge you to give Papito Moe’s a try.

8. The Cluck Truck

Calling all fried chicken lovers! This one is for you. What makes The Cluck Truck one of the best food trucks in Salt Lake City is the unique breading on their chicken.

Whether you are in the mood for some classic chicken tenders, a chicken sandwich, or one of their delicious wraps, you won’t be disappointed. We love the uptown chicken sandwich, featuring a chipotle lime sauce, purple slaw, and pickles, or the Hawaiian wrap with mango-jalapeno slaw, freshly cut pineapple, and a drizzle of bbq sauce.

5. San Diablo Churros

Craving something sweet? We know just the food truck for you. San Diablo’s churros are so good, you’ll be thinking about them for weeks after your first bite. Fresh from the fryer, they are the perfect combination of crunchy and flaky with a soft middle that melts in your mouth. What really puts San Diablo over the top is their incredible fillings. While they have seasonal flavors you’ll want to keep your eye on, their traditional fillings of sweet cream, Nutella, and dulce de leche are Female Foodie favorites. We recommend getting a pack of their mini churros with multiple fillings to see what you like best. Though their name means otherwise, we think these churros are straight from heaven.

2. Makaya Caters

If Haitian food is new to you, you aren’t alone. But be prepared to become a lifelong fan after a meal at Makaya Caters. Chef Jean-Roody is passionate about bringing his family’s favorite foods to Salt Lake and we couldn’t be more grateful. We recommend the spectacular griot platter, a Haitian street food featuring fried plantains, pork that has been marinated in a Haitian spice blend, cinnamon, and a tamarind puree, spicy pikliz, a spicy pickled vegetable relish, and topped with a roasted red pepper coconut sauce. All of these flavors pack a punch and yet manage to create a perfectly balanced bite. The only way to make this meal even better is to get an order of their passion fruit juice on the side. Makaya Caters is one of the best food trucks in Salt Lake City because it is fresh, exciting, and unique.
