A Nashville Street Food Month Spotlight On Nashville Food Trucks On TV

A Nashville Street Food Month Spotlight On Nashville Food Trucks On TV

May 2016 (i.e. this month) brought the fourth annual Nashville Street Food Month, celebrating our city’s bounty of road-worthy food providers. There’s a lot to celebrate, too, with trucks that excel at everything from snow cones to savory crepes.

If you’re still getting to know Nashville’s food truck landscape, an easy place to explore: The Nashville Food Truck Association, whose membership includes 70-plus trucks from across the culinary spectrum. Highly recommended: Poke around the site, learn about what mobile Music City eateries are doing, and, if you’re inspired, make some plans to celebrate the month by meeting some for lunch.

For a somewhat quicker Nashville Street Food Month food truck tour, though, I figured I’d narrow things down a bit with the help of professional editors. Namely, the ones who work for food TV shows. 

Respect for our city’s street food offerings spreads well outside the Davidson County borders, and Nashville food trucks’ steady appearances on food TV through the years is a good representation of that fact. Since I enjoy seeing our neighbors on TV as much as the next guy: Below, a look at some of my favorite local trucks’ TV time. They’re not all still rolling the same way they used to, but they’re all still serving in town in some form (and it’s all a good form). They say pictures are worth a thousand words, so hopefully these moving pictures should be worth… a whole bunch of words.
