Great New Jersey Food Trucks You Must Try
We have some of the best food trucks in New Jersey, and behind each of them is a great story of hard workers; trying to run a small business in a state that goes out of its way to get in your way.
Many of these food trucks use family recipes that you won’t find anywhere else. Since their overhead is low, they can offer you a lower price than physical establishments; and on the catering side, it’s so much better when they are parked in front of your house rather than invading your kitchen.
When I asked my listeners and social media to follow me for the best food trucks in New Jersey, the one that came up was “Your Sister’s Balls.”
Could you come up with a more Jersey name? We had them at our New Jersey 101.5 studios, and I can honestly tell you that their meatballs are amazing! Nicole Montecalvo and her son Joey, who goes by the name “Joey Meatballs,” and his mother, Debbie, not only make great beef, turkey, and seafood meatballs, but an amazing ball made of ground sausage , peppers and onions. It’s to die for!
Another excellent food truck is Latin Bites, which has been in operation since 2018 and serves Puerto Rican and Cuban fusion cuisine. They not only have great food trucks, but also a great location in Manalapan. They can also have the best empanadas and Cuban sandwiches in New Jersey. Rodolfo Villanueva, aka “Roy,” on what sets his Cubano apart from the rest: “It’s the only one you’ll find in New Jersey that’s 14″ long and 1.5 lbs.”
Here are some other recommendations:
Cousins Main Lobster Rolls! They are in the parking lot of the Vinothèque every Tuesday
The Beach Shack Food Truck
Amabiles Hot Dogs – 264 Bergen Turnpike Little Ferry
For dessert, try “The Best Day Ever Ice Cream Truck”
Kathy Conte and her 14-year-old son have been running it for three years and check out the menu:
