The best food trucks on campus according to Temple students

In need of recommendations?

Food trucks are something that rarely any college has, and that is why we are lucky at Temple to have almost every street on campus filled with them.

However, with so many options available (and so little time to try them all) we thought to ask Temple students themselves which food trucks they rank as the best on campus.

So next time you have a lunch break and don’t know where to eat, just look on here for some recommendations.

Jenna Song, Sophomore, Journalism Major

“I would say Halal food truck outside of Student Center is really good. It’s convenient and cheap.”

Emily Doerflein, Junior, Glass Major

“My favorite food truck is definitely Richie’s Lunch Box outside of Tyler! The woman there is so sweet and everything I try is amazing my mouth waters thinking about it. They have a lot of Vegetarian options which is very useful for me since not all food trucks have that option!”

Ernie Tyler, Senior, Early Childhood Education and Special Education Major

“I do not eat at too many food trucks but my favorite one is Brother’s Pizza truck because they use Dollarwatcher. It’s an awesome app that is helping restaurants and customers save money on online ordering.”

“I think my favorite food truck is the Footlong truck because you get so much good food for a reasonable price and the people are super friendly! Or the Burger Tank is pretty good too.”

“I like the Mexican Grille truck near the student center the best. The food is really good and the people that run it are very nice. I also think it’s a good value for the price. The chicken tacos are my favorite thing to get there.”

Christina Fusca, Sophomore, Criminal Justice Major

“My favorite food truck is Richie’s lunch box. Richie’s mom runs it and she is always happy to see me when I order my usual chicken Caesar wrap. It’s great food, great service, and inexpensive.”

“I really like the Crepe truck bc of all the different options, there’s a type of crepe for whatever mood you’re in!”
