Everyone knows that the Triangle is full of great restaurants. But did you know we’ve got some pretty outstanding food trucks here, too? In fact, some of the most popular restaurants in the area even started out as food trucks!
Whether you want to stay up-to-date on the culinary scene around the Triangle or you’re just looking to grab lunch or dinner, Food Truck Thursdays in Knightdale is a can’t-miss happening. Check out some of the details, find out what trucks are on the schedule, and see which Knightdale neighborhoods are just a few minutes away.
Food Truck Thursdays isn’t necessarily a summer-specific event—it’s actually been happening since April and runs through October—but with those longer hours of daylight, summer is one of the best times to check it out!
The gathering happens on the third Thursday of every month (so the next one will be July 18th) at the Knightdale Station Park Amphitheater. You’ll find different trucks stationed at the park for lunchtime and dinnertime, which runs from 11:30am to 1:30pm and 6pm to 8pm, respectively.
An added bonus: dinnertime also features live musical performances on the stage!
Since the event has been running since April, there have already been tons of trucks that have passed through—but don’t worry, there’s still plenty more on the schedule. The next Food Truck Thursday will feature lunch from Virgil’s Jamaica, which offers menu items like jerk chicken, oxtail stew, and sweet fried plantains.
Once 6pm rolls around, there will be three different food trucks hitting the park. First up is Morfa Empanadas, with everything from spicy beef empanadas to dulce de leche empanadas.
Next up, Fully Loaded Fritters brings their delicious fried goods to the scene. We recommend getting the mouthwatering blue claw crab and corn fritter, then finishing things off with a few Oreo fritters. Lastly, the Kona Ice truck will be around slinging some tasty cool treats.
