Fried Egg I'm In Love City: Portland, Oregon Twitter Handle: @friedegglove

"If you liked it then you should have put an egg on it" seems to be the mantra of this breakfast-centric truck. Customers can pick up a coffee along with an inventively named morning sandwich (Yolko Ono, Sriracha Mix-A-Lot, Free-Range Against the Machine, to name a few).

Seti's Polish Boys City: Cleveland Twitter Handle: It's old-school—just a phone number

The Polish Boy, a decadent sandwich loaded with kielbasa, fries, coleslaw and barbecue sauce, is as iconic to Cleveland as cheesesteak is to Philadelphia. (Hometown hero and The Chew star Michael Symon is a huge fan.) Feeling extra indulgent? Add chili and cheese.

Kogi BBQ City: Los AngelesTwitter Handle: @kogibbq

Chef Roy Choi has become a rock star in the food truck world, firing up the Korean-Mexican taco movement nationwide. (He currently operates four vehicles in and around L.A.!) Choi's short rib taco with cilantro-onion-lime relish is legendary.

Cow Tipping Creamery City: Austin, Texas Twitter Handle: @cowtippcreamery

The number of food truck options in this city (1,500+) is daunting, but this relative newcomer holds its own deliciously. These soft-serve artisans make their own toppings—among them, Dr Pepper cherry sauce and Ritz crunch. Order a "stacker," basically a layered sundae, and you'll want to do the twist.

The Grilled Cheeserie City: Nashville, Tennessee Twitter Handle: @GrlldCheeserie

Who doesn't love grilled cheese? Have this gourmet-on-wheels whip up one of its specialties (hello, pimento mac 'n' cheese), or create your own flavorful adventure from their list of breads, cheeses and additions.

Wafels & Dinges City: New YorkTwitter Handle: @waffletruck

Brussels native Thomas DeGeest quit his job at IBM to start selling waffles from a bright yellow 1968 Chevy box truck. "Dinges" is the Belgian word for "stuff," meaning toppings like dulce de leche, maple syrup and walnuts. No sweet tooth? No worries: There are plenty of savory options.
