Best Food Trucks in Chicago

By: Sohaila Abdelhamid

Recently, we compiled a list of a few of the famous food trucks around Chi-Town based on online reviews from Yelp and Google. As well, we received word-of-mouth comments from students attending the University of Chicago. Here’s what we found.

Food truck culture has gotten wildly popular this past year, especially with the pandemic. It’s an easy way to grab good food instead of sitting down at a restaurant, a luxury many of us were not able to afford. Chicago is notorious for having a diverse food scene. Here are some of our favorite food trucks around the city.

The Fat Shallot

Ran by high school sweethearts Sam Barron and Sarah Weitz, The Fat Shallot boasts a variety of well-priced made-to-order sandwiches and sides, with all sandwiches costing you under less than $10. Feeling a little fancy? Give the Truffle BLT a try.

Aztec Daves

Family-run with fresh, homemade Mexican dishes, Aztec Daves is easily one of my favorite food trucks to go to when in the mood for good comfort food. From burritos to tacos, there’s something for everyone. Our recommendation for a good lunch option: The taco special, with three meat or veggie tacos, beans, rice and a drink, coming in at $14.

Cheesie’s

Grilled cheese is an American staple, but if you really think about it, it’s so hard to find a good grilled cheese sandwich. Established in 2011 by Chris Johnshon, he set out to create a truck that offered the kind of grilled cheese you crave. Try the Caprese, an italian twist on the classic grilled cheese, coming in at $9.50.

Piko Street Kitchen

Piko offers a fusion between Mexican and Asian cuisines, with options ranging from tacos to bao to kimchi fried rice. Can’t decide what to get? We recommend the Everything Bowl, with kimchi fried rice, topped with all proteins, veggies and an egg. All that at $14.

Beavers Donuts

Dessert food trucks? So important. For when the craving hits and you just want a quick donut, check out Beavers Donuts. For a medium box of 15 mini donuts, you only pay $8. Make sure to try their signature toppings, especially the Goombah, with Cannoli topping and crumbled pastry shells.

Ranchito Taco Truck

Another classic Mexican food truck. Ranchitos offers a variety of Mexican dishes at very reasonable prices. For only $9.99, you can get a stunning steak burrito. Make sure to also try their elotes, some of the best in Chicago.

Dönermen

With the goal to bring German street food to Chicago, this food truck combines German street dishes with a Turkish twist, creating a marriage of flavors brought to Germany by Turkish immigrants in the 70s. Try the classic CurryWurst with fries, for only $10. They also offer many vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options, so make sure to pass by.

Chicago Pizza Boss

Classic, cheesy, and comforting are the words we use to describe this truck. There’s really no way you could go wrong with pizza, and Chicago Pizza Boss offers a selection of dishes for you to choose from. If you’re a fan of spice, go for the Hell Fire’s Kiss Pizza. At only $14, you get classic base topped with mastro brand imported hot sopressata, wildfire’s hell fire chilli & roasted garlic infused honey. Sounds fantastic, non?

A Sweets Girl

Another one of our favorite dessert food trucks. This truck offers a delicious variety of cupcakes for everyone with a sweet tooth. Anna Wu offers a twist on classic recipes and loves to support charitable causes such as Breast Cancer awareness. Get your sweet tooth satisfied while supporting a cause! We love it. Our choice of cupcake? The matcha cupcake, at only $4.

Bop Bar

Delicious Korean food on wheels. Described as Seoul food for the soul, this truck offers classic Korean dishes as well as more modern twists. Our pick? The bulgogi sandwich, coming in at only $9. A delicious twist on the Korean beef dish for on the go.

Aidan Bissett – Get Dumped

Aidan Bissett returns with an introspective, headbanging, feel-good anthem for anyone who’s ever been dumped. Listen to Dumped, which he co-produced with Ryan Daly (Fitz and the Tantrums, Adam Lambert, Cyn), HERE. After writing the guitar-driven break-up song, Bissett took to TikTok to explain how the track came together in this tongue-in-cheek clip.

Getting dumped is the worst feeling in the world, but screaming this song will make you feel a whole lot better, says Aidan Bissett. The song is about learning that you are better off on your own and that it’s okay to be alone.

Director Brooke James (Troye Sivan) matches the energy of Bissett’s performance with the vibrant, kinetic official video for Dumped. Holed up in a typical teen bedroom, Bissett thoughtfully unpacks his heartbreak on the verses, then rages with his guitar on the scream-along chorus as the camera spins and zooms with equal frenzy. View the video HERE.

Dumped is the follow-up to So High which Euphoria praised as a certified summer bop this song demands to be played after dark either by the pool or the beach with a fire roaring nearby and drinks being passed around among friends. The Honey Pop declared, Aidan Bissett is an artist that everyone needs to be paying attention to. We have a feeling this is only the beginning of his genius artistry.

Born in Florida, Bissett was raised on classic rock bands like Led Zeppelin and AC/DC. He moved to Oregon with his family when he was five and started playing electric guitar in second grade. When his family moved back to Florida, he began teaching himself to produce his own music. Just a year ago, Bissett released his first single,Different, which immediately gained traction online.

As he amassed a sizable following on TikTok, he next put out Worst Girls of All Time, an anti-love-song spiked with moody guitar riffs that landed on Spotify’s Fresh Finds playlist, and More Than Friends. Written, recorded, and produced entirely by Bissett, the songs earned him major buzz and landed the 18-year-old a deal with Capitol Records before he had even graduated from high school. Combined global streams of Bissett’s first three tracks and his Capital debut single, Communication are nearing 11 million.
