The food truck has a long, vaunted history, from the early days of stagecoach-flung hardtack to today's fender-mounted hotdog cannons. Run down hunger with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of gourmet sandwiches and more at The Food Truck, found at regularly-updated locations posted on Twitter.
The Food Truck is a mobile eatery that zooms around Little Rock in search of a hungry crowd and a curb upon which to rest its weary wheels. Regularly parked for lunch at hot spots such as the Bernice Garden and Northshore Business Park, the truck—affectionately imbued with the handle Preston—stocks nine different gourmet sandwiches for passers-by and wandering stomachs. Vegetarians seeking prandial peripatetics can dine on the portobello—balsamic-marinated portabello mushrooms with rosemary spinach, red peppers, swiss, and basil pesto in a wrap ($7), and comfort foodies can seek solace in My Momma's sandwich featuring turkey breast, avocado, swiss, red onion, tomato, and mustard on parmesan-crusted sourdough ($8).
