Three Questions, Four Valley Food Trucks

Page 2 of 3

Question One: Is there food truck etiquette?

Brad Moore: Owner, Short Leash Hot Dogs

Come with a good attitude and a fun group of friends or family. Food trucks are a social experience and that often means standing in line for a bit, so it's better if you're in line with an enthusiastic group. But if you're by yourself, don't be afraid to strike up a conversation with your neighbor.

Laryn Callaway-Blok: Owner, Shine Coffee

Please be patient. We are making your order just for you, by hand, and in a trailer. It's really fun when we all remember this! Since we're inside our trucks, help keep the outside tidy 'n' nice by making sure trash makes it into the receptacles -- and let us know if it looks messy outside.

Korina Adkins: Owner, Frufrupops

If it's busy, try to know what you're ordering before you get to the window. After you order, keep your ears open and don't wander too far away, so that you can hear when it's ready.

Brian Webb: Owner, Hey Joe!

I can't speak for everyone, but we don't do substitutions and we don't give salt and pepper. Well, we do give salt with balut.
