After two previous posts and navigating through the Top Ten Raleigh Food Trucks to this point, we come to our third and final installment in this series. Here we will list the top three after looking at what customers felt of any of the area food trucks and whether they were either good enough or, in some cases, bad enough to leave reviews for. We have documented numbers ten through four in our previous two posts. Many of these and the top three we will introduce below, you can find right at the park in the Knightdale Station new home community during either their weekly food truck events or at the many special gatherings that take place there. Regardless, all ten and especially these top trucks are ones you will want to seek out and have a taste of sometime soon.
How Did We Arrive at the Top Three of All Raleigh Food Trucks
Well, it’s been a journey across these past two posts, that’s for sure. However, just to explain, in case you have not seen the articles preceding this one, we wanted to review our ranking protocol. In actuality, it is straightforward; we based our listing on the reviews and scores of actual customers. Thus, we included any Raleigh Food Trucks that received at least 25 customer feedback items at yelp.com. We will also leave the talking and explanation to you and your actual reviews in this final installment. So, without further adieu, here are the top three Raleigh Food Trucks according to you!!!
3. Kahlovera Street Tacos
Many people equate the food truck in general to tacos and Mexican fare. Maybe this is because before the big boom with Raleigh Food Trucks and across the nation, it did seem that there were an awful lot of “taco trucks,” and though there is a wider variety these days, there still are. Anyhow, as you will see, tacos are going to be an ongoing theme here in our following two entries, starting with Kahlovera Street Tacos, usually located off Miami Boulevard in Durham.
To speak to the overall taste and experience at our number three entry among Raleigh Food Trucks, we turn to the public and the following Yelp review. They begin, “Oh My TACO!!!. I was lured here after seeing amazing photos of the tacos. They reminded me of taco trucks in Southern California, where I call home, and Kahlovera delivered! I would call them “luxury taco-truck tacos.” In closing, she said, “I shall be returning to Kahlovera!”
2. Gym Tacos
“The Five stars are legit,” begins one happy yelp reviewer when discussing the number two entrant on our top Raleigh Food Trucks. They explain their lofty words about Gym Tacos, which can usually be found set up at 220 East Six Forks Road in Valero’s parking lot says the following. “Everything I beyond tasty. Fresh. The sauces are SPICY. We ordered a variety of tacos and a burrito! The chicken was fresh, grilled, and the corn tacos are homemade.”
Another recent reviewer may have summed the Gym Taco experience up even more emphatically by saying this. “Best tacos I’ve had in years! So good you’ll want so many that they negate going to the gym! But unlike skipping the gym, you won’t regret Gym Tacos!”
For number one entry on our Raleigh Food Trucks listings, we once again come back to a Triangle area “classic,” Cockadoodlemoo. This truck can be seen at some of the most significant events and is always somewhere around town, offering one of the best varieties of food of any food truck anywhere. Whether it is their ribs or wings. Pulled Pork or Angus Beef brisket. Their crispy Brussel sprouts or crispy mac and cheese or any of their weekly specials, they don’t have the highest customer reviews of all Raleigh Food Trucks for no reason; it’s because their food is out-of-this-world.
To summarize the top billing, they are receiving the number one of all Raleigh Food Trucks; we turn to a recent, obviously happy customer. “This was honestly one of the best meals I’ve eaten in a long time! I stumbled across their truck on the NC State campus and decided to give them a try for lunch.”
The reviewer adds, “I got the Pull-Thru Burger cooked medium and the side of mac and cheese. WOW! So tasty, the burger was cooked perfectly. The Mac and Cheese were crispy on the outside but perfectly creamy and tender on the inside. One final reviewer also hit the proverbial nail right on the head, in closing, saying this about Cockadoodlemoo.
“The food was amazing. The Brussel sprouts and crispy mac and cheese WOWWWWW! The service was quick and friendly. HIGHLY recommend eating from this truck when you can!!!
