Nothing beats a basket full of tasty goodness from a local cafe on wheels. Next time you’ve got a hankering for great tasting, simple fare in Plano, grab a bite to eat from one of our favorite area food trucks.
Rumored to be the first Cajun food truck in the area, Tailgators offers diners a unique menu from their portable gourmet kitchen. This food truck serves up some familiar favorites, and adventurous Cajun specialties too.
The southern Louisiana inspired menu changes daily, yet customer’s top picks include the authentic crawfish pistolette. Its crispy, fried French roll is stuffed full of cheesy crawfish etouffee filling with a touch of Southern spice. The scratch-made Jambalaya features a heaping helping of chicken and sausage over dirty rice. Find Cajun Tailgators outside your office or on campus for Food Truck Friday.
Ruthie’s Rolling Cafe
Ruthie’s Rolling Cafe uses grandmother’s dreamy, cheesy recipes, prepared fresh with an extra serving of love, right in their kitchen on wheels. These mobile chefs take a plain, old-fashioned grilled cheese sandwich and turn it into something so much more.
These nostalgic comfort foods are made to order from a wide variety of cheeses, meats, veggies, and sauces. The Crazy Chicken on sourdough is loaded with grilled chicken, bacon, Havarti cheese, and topped with homemade jalapeno ranch. Try the Turkey Trot, piled high with smoked turkey, bacon, homemade slob sauce, and layers of melty sharp cheddar.
There’s a grilled cheese with a twist for everyone in the family at Ruthie’s. Find her crew parked near Klyde Warren Park or Palo Alto Network on Thursdays.
