Although it’s still in beta, Zagat’s site already has 33 different food trucks identified and pinpoints them on a map, giving users both the Zagat ratings and a real-time location and duration of activity. Trucks include the usual suspects, like Schnitzel & Things, Treats Truck, and Dessert Truck, but also includes some lesser-known movable feasts, like the Souvlaki Truck, La Cense Beef Burger, and Kelvin Natural Slush Co. It also contains links to the trucks’ Twitter and Facebook pages.
It’s not a perfect site (it takes a few minutes to figure out where to click for the trucks’ locations and the new and beloved Taïm Mobile isn’t listed), but it’s a lot more convenient than the similar website Tweat.it or scanning through Twitter to follow your favorite trucks. Now, if only there was a site where you could request a truck to come to you.
