Looking for your next great takeout meal? With their inventive offerings, wide variety, and fast turnaround times, food carts are the way to go! Here are four next-level Lafayette food trucks near Purdue University and RISE on Chauncey.

The Guac Box

Tex-Mex in Indiana? Why not! The Guac Box’s roaming food truck offers up all the classic – tacos, nachos, and empanadas. And about that guacamole – it’s all hand-smashed and fresh. Stay tuned to their calendar and Facebook page to see where the truck’s at. You can also visit their brick-and-mortar restaurant space at Purdue West Shopping Plaza on West State Street.

Roasted, Toasted & Baked

This always-on-the-move food cart serves up a fun twist on comfort food classics – everything from inventive sandwiches and wraps to expertly smoked brisket. A few menu highlights include the Brisket Mac Daddy, the RTBeast piled high with a medley of smoked meats, and the straightforward but reliably delicious Classic Brisket Sandwich. Stay tuned to RTB’s Facebook page to see where the truck will turn up next.

Grilled Chicken & Rice

Don’t let the literal name fool you. This food truck delivers some first-rate Middle Eastern fare. Chicken shawarma. Falafel. Kabab dishes. Gyros. Divine hummus. Grilled Chicken & Rice has it all. Visit the website to see where their truck will be next, or visit their restaurant space at Purdue West Shopping Plaza, right by The Guac Box.

Famous Franks

Famous Franks has been serving up hot dogs and more since the owner, Frank, set up his push cart outside Von’s Comics back in 1995. It quickly became a late-night favorite for Purdue students and is now a full-fledged food truck with all sorts of creative offerings. Hot dogs. Bacon dogs. Grilled cheese. Philly cheesesteak. Frank’s infamous lineup of Fat sandwiches. They have it all. Follow the Famous Franks Facebook page for information on how to find them!
