Sure, the Greater Miami & Miami Beach area is packed with noteworthy brick-and-mortar restaurants. But it’s also known for a whole other kind of dining experience: food trucks. A modern spin on authentic street food culture, these traveling restaurants whip up everything from simple burgers and fries to dim sum, nitrogen-infused ice cream, creative grilled cheese sandwiches, and traditional Cuban and Latin American dishes. The food truck trend in Greater Miami & Miami Beach shows no signs of stopping. These are just a handful of the places and events where you can find some of the area’s best food trucks.

The Wharf Miami

Since opening its doors in 2017 along the Miami River near Downtown Miami, The Wharf Miami has reshaped the food truck game by providing a permanent place for several of Miami’s best-known trucks. This 30,000-square-foot venue really “arrived” on the scene when soccer star and fashion icon David Beckham held a World Cup watch party here in 2018. Don’t miss Cracked by Chef Adrianne, a chef-driven farm-to-truck concept, or the food truck version of local favorite, Mojo Donuts and Fried Chicken, for a pairing made in heaven.
