Each day from 11-3, a fleet of food trucks makes its way over to Klyde Warren Park for the lunch rush. They park along the eastbound lane of the Woodall Rogers feeder (in front of the DMA), and huge crowds of parkgoers and those working and playing in the Arts District come to partake in the daily offerings. On the day we stopped by, we sampled from Ruthie’s Rolling Café, The Butcher’s Son, Abe's Flavor Flave, Yummy Pizza, and What’s Da Scoop? trucks.

View of trucks lined up as you cross from the DMA parking garage into Klyde Warren. 

We'll start with Ruthie's, because...well...they are legendary. Ruthie’s main game is grilled cheese, and they are DELICIOUS. So good, they actually have kind of a cult following these days. They offer the classic with American and sourdough, of course, plus additional versions that put a gourmet spin on the original. For example, the Boss – which adds bbq brisket to cheddar, or the Turkey Trot – with turkey, cheddar, bacon, and slob sauce. See the Ruthie’s Rolling Cafe menu and daily schedule here. {Ruthie's Official Site}

The Boss Grilled Cheese. They also offer their sandwiches on gluten free bread, which is what you see here. I still dream about it. 

Abe’s Flavor Flave probably had the longest line in the park the day we went, and they offer Mexican street food and gyros. Tacos, nachos, quasadillas…you name it, we saw it being served up. And everyone we talked to was diving in with gusto! Abe's doesn't have a URL, but they do have a dedicated Facebook page where you can look at their menu and schedule. {Abe's Facebook Page}

Abe's Flavor Flave Truck. Hard to miss! 

Abe's street tacos!

Loaded nachos. They look even more appetizing sitting atop this bright green table, don't you think?

Another big player in the Dallas food truck scene, The Butcher’s Son, was also serving up huge portions to patrons. The sandwiches coming out the windows were laden with tons of meat and toppings – definitely enough to fill you up. Meat lovers, unite! {The Butcher's Son Official Site}

Shown here, the Panhandle Po Boy. They also offer quesadillas and sliders.

We kept hearing rave reviews about the Yummy Pizza truck, too. Super popular with the buses of kids that were there with us that day, and - bonus - they offer a gluten free crust option. {Yummy Pizza Official Site}

Yummy Pizza is totally a kid favorite!

What’s Da Scoop? is strictly ice cream - but not "your average bear" sort of scoops. This is Dallas we’re talking about, and the flavors, toppings, and specialty sundaes reflect the typical Dallas “fancy fare” we’ve all come to expect. Offerings change daily based on demand, but you can see a sample of the menu and schedule here. {What's Da Scoop? Official Site}

This beauty here is the Cool, Calm, and Collected – a curated cone featuring vanilla ice cream, dulce de leche, sea salt, topped with crushed nilla wafers.

If that’s not your style, you could also sample a simple scoop – maybe the Kitty Kitty Bang Bang, or the Mint Cookie. With so many choices, you really can’t go wrong.

What's Da Scoop? gets the cutest food truck award!

Food truck dining is an experience in and of itself, but getting to enjoy it at the park is even more fun. Tables dot the walkways under every tree, and the views as you eat are tremendous! Sky scrapers, moms and kids, field trips, business folk, and everything in between. It’s a scene that reflects the heartbeat of the city. So if you’re looking for a fun and casual outing for lunch, check out Klyde Warren Park's food truck line up! Visit the "Things to Do" page on the park website for daily food truck schedules.
