I'm from back in NY, and we have food carts and trucks on EVERY corner back east. I miss being able to buy something grilled off the street and walk around the neighborhood with it. Why do I hardly see any food trucks/carts in Chicago? I don't always like sitting down at a table and chair with my food. The rest of the country has embraced the food truck phenomena in a big way from LA, NY, Miami, Houston, D.C., etc. This is the only major city in the US that I hardly find any food trucks. I only see it once in a blue moon when street festivals happen, and even then I see Chicagoans love them. We have plenty of cultural variety where I think food trucks would do well all year round. It would add independent jobs and would encourage folks to get out of their house and walk the streets a bit more.
I love this neighborhood, cause it's so forward-thinking and liberal, u would think Our neighborhood more than any would have a few. Do folks know of any in and around our neighborhood?
How come Chicago doesn't enjoy the food truck/cart culture?
Is it not legal to have one?
