The food truck scene in Seattle has spread across the city for years, rushing through every neighborhood from popular demand with no apparent restraint purposes.

Found in breweries, parks and street corners of the region, some of the most successful trucks have even taken root to become full brick and mortar restaurants in the city. And with more residents out and about after the state fully reopens from COVID-19 restrictions, these four-wheeled cell phones provide a fast-moving bite.

From fresh bowls to Pakistani street food, here are 11 of Seattle’s best food trucks to find this summer before rushing to their next destination.

Anyone who knows tacos with toast knows the truck is worth following. As one of Seattle’s only Native American dining establishments, Off the Rez has gained a legion of loyal fans serving Indian tacos on toasted dough with topsings like BBQ pulling pork or beef chili. Just make sure you have a damp napkin as these tacos can get messy.


If you fail to track their truck, you can also swing from their brick and mortar cafe space to the newly opened Burke Museum.
