The Great Texas Food Truck Rally

The Great Texas Food Truck Rally is rolling in this Sunday from noon to 8 pm.

The rally will feature live music, Dallas’s best food a beer garden and more.

Located in Reverchon Park on Maple Avenue, the venue will run along Turtle Creek with shade from big trees to keep visitors cool.

Ten dollars covers the cost of admission, and profits sponsor Executives in Action, an organization which aims to partner transitioning community executives with nonprofits, to change the lives of both parties.

Executives in Action, which has raised over $5 million for its partnering nonprofits, donates service grants to ease any monetary strains the nonprofits may have.

The bands, The Spazmatics and Hard Night’s Day, will perform throughout the evening.

A grassy lawn by the stage is a perfect place to picnic on blankets and towels.

A beer garden, sponsored by The Nodding Donkey, will attract of-age SMU students who frequent the bar, as well as older community members.

Though alcohol is served, the event is family-friendly.

Most importantly, the food: featured trucks include Bellatrino, Bobaddiction, Butcher’s Son, Cajun Tailgators, Easy Slider, Flatlander’s Tacos, Guava Tree, Jo Dawgs, Parrot Icce, Ruthie’s Rolling Cafe, Texas Burrito Company, Vegan Noms, What’s Da Scoop and Yim Yam Truck.

SMU students who frequent our campus’ food trucks will enjoy the familiar brightly-colored eateries, but there are many new samplings to try.

Those unfamiliar with each truck’s offerings may visit the individual trucks’ website or simply wait to peruse offerings in person.

A wide variety of food from Mexican to barbecue to shaved ice ensures all attendees will leave full.

While trucks will serve hot food throughout the evening, true foodies will arrive early to beat the crowds and sample the food while it’s hot.

The entrance ticket does not cover the cost of food, and each truck will govern its own menu and prices.

The event will also feature a Kiddie Zone, with prize raffles, spinning wheels, and activities such as karate lessons from PRO Martial Arts Lakewood.

The event is pet-friendly as well.

Parking, a typical problem with such big events, will be a breeze thanks to multiple lots, an Uber code available to attendees, and free Dallas Pedicabs to shuttle people to and from their parking spots.

The admission tickets may be purchased online at, or at the event entrance. Children under 10 are admitted free of charge.
