With the use of quality ingredients, cheap-and-cheerful can taste like fine dining. Take for example the buttermilk-fried chicken-thigh sandwich with candied bacon and homemade barbecue sauce ($10) that helped chef-owner Shannen Tune win an episode of Food Network’s Chopped. Classy, right? Maybe not, but we’re not complaining.

Skip the airfare and say aloha to this truck’s Hawaiian favorites, including mac salad ($3), crispy chicken katsu ($9) and three dishes centered around Spam. Fans of classics like huli-huli chicken ($9) and rich loco moco ($10) won’t be disappointed.

The Sauer Kraut
@sauerkrauttruck

Chef-owner Eric Morse serves flavor-packed fare befitting his Germany-meets-Texas heritage through brats, wursts and long-fermented house sauerkraut. We love the Military Brat ($10) with homemade sauerkraut—a meal to make any German or Texan proud.

Warm, freshly baked cookies hug generous helpings of luscious homemade ice cream ($3.75) at this dessert truck. Cookie flavors include usual suspects such as chocolate chip, peanut butter and oatmeal-raisin, but we prefer to order a hot waffle or churro filled with peanut-butter-brownie or sugar-free-apple-pie ice cream.

Oh My Gogi!
@ohmygogi

Korean-Mexican fusion is so popular in Houston that eaters who don’t arrive as soon as the truck opens may miss out on this truck’s OMG! Fries ($7), a golden mound of hot potatoes hidden beneath seasoned beef, Colby Jack cheese, spicy mayo and Sriracha. The Gogi ($9) and Ramen burgers ($10) claim plenty of devotees, too.
