The University of Akron now has dining options for when you’re on the go and on your way to class. Food Trucks are now available on Buchtel Mall, across the street from the Buckingham Building and by the Goodyear Polymer Building.

The trucks that will be available this week are Sassy Dogs, JT’s Barbecue, The Orange Trück, and Boca Loca. These food trucks will add a great variety to the food options on campus.

You can get a different type of meal everyday with the different trucks that come to campus during the week. Have a taste for burritos? Boca Loca is your place. Boca Loca is known for their amazing graffiti on their truck and their great tasting burritos. When asking one of the servers inside the Boca Loca truck which burrito was their most popular, she said, “Probably Dirty Puerco because of the sweet chipotle BBQ sauce that gives it a burst of sweet but spicy flavor.”

Dirty Puerco is pulled pork with fried potatoes, sweet chipotle BBQ sauce and creamy coleslaw. If you’re looking for something simpler to eat, Sassy Dogs is the way to go with their mouth-watering hot dogs. Sassy Dogs also serves Coneys, Sauerkraut, and Polish Sausages.

JT’s Barbecue speaks for itself, everything is BBQ. Pulled pork, chicken, turkey and beef. JT’s Barbecue also has a $5 meal deal, which is a pulled pork or chicken sandwich, baked beans or coleslaw and a drink for only $5. Great food for a great price.

The Orange Trück is great to try if you’re looking for something new and exotic to try. The Orange Trück serves Gastro Cuisine, which is high quality artisan cuisine on wheels. Their menu consists of meals from Gourmet Grilled Cheese to White Balsamic Braised Rabbit. These Food Trucks are definitely a great way to try new foods for lunch during the week and also at a great price.

The trucks are available Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Remember to stop by Buchtel Mall and check the different truck featured each day.
