Reno has seen its fair share of bad buffets but in the last several years a serious food renaissance has hit the streets of downtown with restaurants such as Fuego, Old Granite Street Eatery, Midtown Eats, Campo, Süp and many more. In addition to these great new restaurants food truck fever has also hit Reno. Here are your options for quick, curbside dining:
This well-known food truck serves up gourmet grilled cheese and homemade tomato soup. With options like the Jive Turkey (Brie, sliced turkey, basil, and orange-cranberry sauce on sourdough. $8.75) or the Sweet & Tangy (Creamy chèvre cheese, green apples and a touch of honey grilled on white bread. $7.50) and a side of tomato soup ($3.00) or Parmesan Garlic Fries (served with basil aioli $4.00) this truck is sure to satisfy your inner child.

This truck is the newest to the fleet and is just started serving the public today. If you have ever been to Dish Café this truck is sure to please your taste buds. The Cowgirl Tri Tip Panini (Creekstone Farms Tri Tip, Caramelized Onions, Thyme, Goat Cheese, Dijon, Goat Cheese Spread, Sourdough. $8.95 ) is by far my favorite and was even featured on Food Networks Diners, Drive Ins and Dives. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LLGVgOv7gkk The Megan’s Famous Reuben on Rye Swirl (Pastrami, Sauerkraut, Swiss, Dijon, DISH Secret Sauce. $8.95) sounds awesome too. I’m looking forward to tasting many more delights at their new truck. Find their latest location on Facebook or Twitter
Kenji’s Food Truck
Kenji’s is serving up a mixture of Asian, Mexican and Hawaiian fusion cuisine. With nothing on the menu over $6.50 this truck is a great option. The Asian Taco’s (Korean style: marinated chicken or beef, onion, cilantro, & spicy cucumber or Hawaiian style: smoked kalua pork, onion, cilantro, & queso fresco. $1.50) sound amazing, as do the Kalua Pig Nachos (topped with salsa, black beans, jalapeno, cilantro & chipotle sour cream, and cilantro. $6.00).
