I have no desire to go to a restaurant that may not exist at a certain time and/or place. That includes food trucks. If I see one at meal time I may try it, but I will not seek it out.

Agreed...If you come across it, and lie the food, fine. But searching around looking for a moving target,is somewhat silly, if not time consuming!

From what I've seen, the hours and locations for many popups and food trucks can be found online.  If I was planning on visiting one the internet would be the first place I'd look...

So how does that work SC? Do I enter "the foodtruck we had Italian beef in Madison" in Google? (Bad example, they are now a brick & mortar.) I can't remember a single one of the cutesy names of foodtrucks I've tried over the years.

I fear we are a bit beyond the instant generation. I'm with you, I'd like to know it's going to be there if I want to go again.

The scene here in New Orleans is nowhere near as robust as other towns but most food trucks have set locations on set nights. For instance my favorite Vietnamese truck is at a certain brewery every Friday night and has been for several years.

My wife follows some of our favorite food trucks and pop-ups on Facebook. Many also use Instagram and twitter and some have schedules on their websites. We easily find out when our favorite Spanish pop-up will be at our favorite brewery. A wood fired pizza trailer that we love relocated to L.A. from Charleston last year. We learned they were coming back to visit and do a pop-up at a bbq we like here and didn’t miss meeting up with them again. Hot smoked sausage on wood fired pizza was divine.
