Though Portland and Austin claim food truck supremacy, Chicago's mobile meals are nothing to sleep on. Offering unconventional alternatives to your standard, non-moving lunch joints, check out some of these delicious restaurants on wheels.
For instance, Gaztro-Wagon, called the best sandwich shop in the city by the Chicago Tribune, offers gourmet sandwiches like Wild Boar Belly with ancho chili sauce. The Southern Mac and Cheese Truck has a large menu full of exciting takes on the comfort food favorite, with combinations like blue cheese, bacon and mushroom, and truffle-infused white cheddar.
The menus at these places change frequently, so come with an open mind and an empty stomach.
