Food Trucks

San Diego is known to have many amazing, gourmet food trucks.  No doubt many of those will be found cruising the Gaslamp during Comic-Con (like at last year’s South Park town hall event), and we will post details as we find them.  Here’s what we currently know will be in town:

Petco Park Interactive Lot
Will have a number of food trucks serving their goods, along with lots of other exciting things to see and do.  The lot is located at Park Blvd. & Imperial St, near the pedestrian bridge to the Hilton Bayfront.

Invasion of the Pier: Bites, Brews & Bands on the Bay
The San Diego Air & Space Museum will be hosting this food truck extravaganza on July 13-14 from 4-11pm over on Broadway Pier, featuring over 14 trucks, live music, and beer gardens.  They will have $1 shuttles to/from the convention center & various hotels. Visit their event site for more info!

The Butterfinger BARmageddon Truck
A fake news network, but hopefully giving out candy!

ParaNorman Ice Cream Truck
Promoting the upcoming film while giving out free ice cream!

Jack’s Munchie Mobile
Jack in the Box, headquartered in San Diego, has their food truck serving burgers! The truck will be located in the Interactive Zone, next to Petco Park.  The Munchie Mobile has a Facebook Page.

History Channel Cross-Country Cookout
Outdoor BBQ Semi-Truck (Island Ave & 1st St) – Will feature grub from San Diego local (and amazing) restaurants, Phil’s BBQ and Hodad’s.
