I don’t get it. I often see 15-minute-plus lines outside food trucks, and the food is often just as pricey as fast-casual or fastfood restaurants around the neighborhood even though they offer no place to sit, and the food is at best same or worse as these restaurants.
I am more than happy to stand to munch on delicious, and convenient street food, and sometimes find the ‘ambiance’ charming. But I can’t figure out why I won’t just go sit down somewhere comfortably if the trucks offer no particular advantage.
I get the theoretical appeal of trucks- convenience, speed and price. But that doesn’t seem to be the case with many trucks these days. What am I missing? The novelty?
