Truck on over to St. Augustine and Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida for a Delicious Meal on the Go

From down-home Southern fried chicken and local favorites like shrimp and grits, to Po’ Boys and fresh fish tacos, fresh veggie wraps and  Caribbean fare, St. Augustine and Ponte Vedra’s food truck offerings are perfect for the busy traveler on the go.
 
Visiting Florida’s Historic Coast guarantees a vacation chock-full of old-world charm, art and culture, unparalleled history, plenty of nightlife and, of course, flavorful dining. With dozens of food trucks peppered throughout the downtown and beaches areas, including the Farmers Market at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre and a new food truck park slated for construction on the island, you’re sure to find that perfect meal or midday snack from these one-of-a-kind purveyors.
 
Upscale contemporary cuisine with a worldly culinary twist can be found at Uptown Scratch Kitchen, conveniently located next to DOS Coffee & Wine on San Marco Avenue. A local favorite that is known to sell out of their most popular dishes, call ahead to ensure your healthy helping of Seafood Etouffee, Caribbean Jerk Chicken or New Orleans Po’ Boy Shrimp sandwiches are ready and waiting for you when you arrive. Just don’t forget to add an order of their famous Rosemary fries with spicy ketchup. Also, make sure to plan for a stop at Streaming the Bullet for Banh Mi and Shoyu Vegetable Ramen.
 
Tacos aren’t just for Tuesday. As a coastal area brimming with fresh fish, it’s no surprise that seafood tacos are one of the most popular food truck items on Florida’s Historic Coast. Nalu’s Tropical Take Out just outside the entrance to Anastasia State Park is touted as “St. Augustine’s first food truck,” and has been serving up fresh Hawaiian-inspired dishes since 2002. Don’t leave town without trying the Secret Spot Tacos with crunchy cabbage and cilantro pesto. There’s Sporks Food Truck, too. Order a side of Costa Rican Rice and Beans with your Ahi Tuna Tacos. You won’t regret it.
 
Around these parts, food truck patrons have spoken and healthy fare is on the menu. Crave Food Truck, located on Oyster Creek in the Riberia Street Marina parking lot, changes their menu regularly to fit with the freshest local ingredients available. Try a Spicy Thai Tempeh Wrap with house-made spicy Thai peanut sauce and wash it down with a First Date smoothie topped with Goji Berries. Check out other nutritious food truck offerings such as Big Island Bowls on Anastasia Boulevard for Poke Tuna Bowls and fruit Smoothie Bowls.     
 
The South is known for down-home comfort food and Florida’s Historic Coast is no exception. Fried Chicken Kitchen is regularly on the move, so make sure to check out their website for upcoming locations. Southern Fried Chicken and sides galore – cornbread, potato salad and collard greens to name a few – have made SFC a favorite for longtime Floridians craving their mama and grandmama’s cooking. Southern staples can also be found at Datil Rooster on US 1. Try the crab cake sliders with a side of macaroni salad.
