GastroPod is touted as the first gourmet food truck in Miami. Fans swear by Chef Jeremiah’s homemade Latin and Caribbean-style food. His old dirt dog – a smoked short-rib hot dog – is legendary. Hours of operation and locations are unpredictable, but look for a customized silver 1962 Airstream motor home roving Biscayne Boulevard near downtown Miami. Hours: Lunch and dinner.

If you love tacos, you’ll salivate at the sight of Latin Burger & Taco truck’s eight-inch chicken tortilla. It dwarfs Taco Bell’s. Then there’s the grilled Portobello mushroom sandwich. These eats come courtesy of Food Network host and restaurateur Ingrid Hoffman, part owner of the pink and black truck. It travels throughout Miami and sometimes takes the half-hour drive to Fort Lauderdale. Hours: Lunch and dinner.

The Yellow Submarine Truck

7221 SW 58th Avenue
South Miami, Fla. 33143
(786) 587-8194

The concept of gourmet fast food is living large inside the Yellow Submarine Truck. You could mistake it for a blinding-yellow newspaper delivery truck. But this big vehicle serves ham, chicken and turkey sandwiches with names like Killer Queen and Original Sin. A frankfurter named Yellow Dog comes with crumbled potato chips, provolone, ketchup, mustard, mayo and pineapple sauce. The sauces are to die for. Hours: Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Orale Taqueria Mexicana

SW 28th Street & 37th Avenue
Coconut Grove, Fla. 33133
(305) 970-0270

This truck stands out among trucks for gourmet food in Miami. Orale Taqueria Mexicana food truck is decked out in stripes of red, white and green – the colors of the Mexican flag. The lamb, pork and beef tacos are handmade Mexican old-school-style and served sans tons of fancy toppings. The truck is known to hang out at flea markets. Warning: Go lightly on the homemade hot sauces. Hours: 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

    I would like to mention Pincho man. this food truck sells a burger that is called the off the chain burger, its name speaks for its self. also sells pinchos made with real churrasco meat and you can also have the pincho delux which is a pincho on a bread. he also sells sammy dogs (hotdogs), chicken burger, and the newyork steak. But his Best is the off the chain burger. The good thing about all of these menu items is they come with a secret sauce blended with the rich flavor of his great quality meats. If you think its expensive think again; its not. This trucks work hours our wednesday thru saturday 10:30pm thru 5 am weather permitting. For those that like to get a late bite should go check it out. He is located off the NW 58th street exit in the palmetto in the corner of NW 74th avenue and NW 56th street

    Food Truck prices should not be as high as sit down full service resturants. It is just not right. A main insentive to frequent a food truck is that the prices should be good.
