When hunger strikes follow your nose to the Q Up! BBQ food truck. This Phoenix food truck features smoked barbecue meats served traditionally or with a southwestern flair. Popular menu items include their Gangsta Grilled Cheese, a grilled cheese sandwich with a generous portion of beef brisket stuffed inside with bacon and macaroni and cheese, and their BBQ Pork Nachos, served with their slow-smoked pork on top of house-made tortilla chips and finished with salsa and cheese.
If you are more of a barbecue traditionalist, you can order the Three Meat Plate that comes with mesquite slow smoked beef brisket, pulled pork, spicy sausage and a side.
The food truck craze has exploded in Phoenix with many opportunities to eat from these rolling gourmet “restaurants.” We’ve eaten from many of the food trucks throughout Phoenix and wanted to highlight them individually for you. You can find the food trucks on a regular basis at the Downtown Phoenix Public Market on Wednesday evenings from 5-8 p.m, Fridays from 11 a.m. — 1:30 p.m. and on Saturdays from 8 a.m. — 1 p.m. At the North Central Farmers’ Market on Saturdays from 9 a.m. — 2 p.m., and the Third Thursday of the Month at the Whole Foods Raintree location from 11:30 a.m. — 1 p.m. There are always many more opportunities that you can find by following your favorite truck individually or by following the Phoenix Street Coalition.
