Have you seen the new trend in Charlotte with having food truck vendors serving up more than just hot dogs to the weary bar-goers at 2 a.m. on a Thursday, Friday, or Saturday night? I think its a really neat trend that you can now find a better selection if you are trying to grab a bite to eat on the run and want a little more selection than hot dogs or bratwurst! Some food trucks even allow you to follow them on Twitter so that you’ll know what they are serving and where to find them.
Here is a neat video on Red’s BBQ by VendrTV. Oh, and if you are on Twitter and are curious about some of the local mobile food vendors, check out their Twitter “handles” below the video.
