With the Summer Kickoff Party looming on the horizon, I have a hard time hiding my excitement about food trucks. The live music and the time at AirU are going to be great, but the food trucks are what have my greatest amount of attention.

Food trucks are my latest favorite hobby, and the more unique they are the better. For the discerning eye, you can find a food truck that really gives you something special for the money you spend. Here are my favorites.

Be sure to check out all of the food trucks that will be available for your dining pleasure at this year's Summer Kickoff Party at AirU.

    Fried Gator

    It might sound like a roll of the dice to walk up to a kitchen on wheels and order fried gator. I've never been one to shy away from a chance to gamble. This one paid off. It was surprisingly good with an amazing flavor that is hard to describe. Cajun food trucks for the win.

    Fried Snake

    With the abundance of snakes in this part of the world, this one really wasn't a surprise. Go to a snake derby anywhere on the plains, and you'll find fried snake in a food truck. Slightly resembles chicken, and if done right is actually delicious.

    Anything On A Stick

    Chicken On A Stick is one of my all time favorites. Food truck owners the world over are absolute wizards when it comes to finding ways to put something in the deep fryer and attach it to a stick. Something about the stick just makes things taste better.

    Steak

    One of the best steak meals I've ever had came from a food truck that used bales of hay and wire spools for a table and chairs. This proved once and for all that food trucks can be so much more than just deep fried fair food.

    Street Tacos

    I would be willing to wager that the best tacos in the world all come from a food truck. They just always seem better than the ones you can get in a restaurant. Tacos and food trucks just go together. Fingers crossed we will have plenty of taco options at this year's Summer Kickoff Party.
