Orlando is a great family vacation destination; after all, with Disney World and Universal Studios, there’s so much to do in this great Florida city.
Part of any great family vacation is the food, and when you’re out and about finding an amazing restaurant isn’t always easy. That’s why we put together this list of food trucks in Orlando. They offer great food while you’re on the go seeing the city sights. So whether you’re staying at the Holiday Inn or a charming bed and breakfast, this list will help you find the best food trucks in your part of Orlando.
- Twisted Plates
If you’re in the mood for a gourmet meal but don’t want to put on nice clothes and wait an hour for a table, then you need to track down the Twisted Plates food truck. Their menu changes frequently, but locals have had and raved about their flavorful gator po’boy, polenta fries and chicken rice bowl. Twisted Plates offers full-sized entrees alongside quicker bites to eat and of course, dessert.

- Jeremiah’s Italian Ice
Italian ice has been an East Coast staple for a while, and even Kramer got in on the craze on Seinfeld.
Jeremiah’s Italian Ice takes things to a whole new level, though. Their Italian Ice is made from pureed fruit, ice cream and fresh fruit. And the best part? You can choose from more than 40 flavors and the portions are huge — even by food truck standards.
Jeremiah’s is an Orlando staple, so if you’re only in town for a few days it’s one you just can’t miss. Track the truck on Twitter.
- Monsta Lobsta
Who doesn’t love lobster? Especially in an area of the country like Orlando where seafood is just so good, you can’t pass up a fresh seafood meal.
Monsta Lobsta can help curb your seafood cravings on the go. From spicy lobster bisque to lobster rolls and blue crab, you’ll have plenty of choices to satisfy your love for lobster. You can track the truck here.
- The Crepe Company
The dessert scene is popular with food trucks, and The Crepe Company is no exception. They’re supposedly Orlando’s first crepe maker and every crepe they serve is handmade. They also offer some entree options, in addition to breakfast crepes and the dessert style ones that have made crepes such a favorite.
You can find The Crepe Company in these locations.
- Daydream Pizza
Pizza is such an amazing food that good pizza is actually more difficult to find than you’d think.
Enter the Daydream Pizza truck. Crispy crusts, thick layers of cheese and ample toppings really do make these pizzas the stuff of daydreams. You can get traditional pizzas, but for the more adventurous eater, Daydream Pizza offers interesting combos, like pepperoni and marshmallow.
You can even snag hot dogs or pizza rolls from this truck, too, if a full pizza is too much. Find this truck here.
- The Pastrami Project
A good New York-style deli sandwich is harder to come by than it should be when you aren’t in the Big Apple. Luckily, Orlando has The Pastrami Project. Everything in this truck is made from scratch, including their bread, corned beef and even cheesecake.
Grab a great sandwich and take a walk around downtown. You won’t be disappointed with either. Find the truck here.
- Au Naturel Juice and Smoothie Bar
Blending your own drinks with fruit fresh from the local grocer is a great way to stay healthy, but when you’re traveling that’s much harder to do.
The Au Naturel Juice and Smoothie Bar can help you out in that situation, though. Their blended drinks are prepared in full view while you wait, and they have tons of super-healthy green drinks. And their calendar will help you find where they’re going to be while you’re in town.
Orlando is home to a ton of great food trucks, which means your next trip won’t be short on unique dining options. So grab your phone, check out where the trucks are and get eating!
