In the Mood for Food Trucks

Summer is quickly slipping away. Capture the sun with a day of fun and food at the Fairview Food Truck Festival, Aug. 1 from 4-9 p.m. It’s free to attend (food and drinks extra) and packed with nearly 20 food trucks, live music, inflatables and cornhole. A sprayground and $5, 16-ounce beers will keep you cool in the 80-degree weather.

Here are our picks for a few of the lines worth waiting for, and what to order when you do:
  • Stone Pelican Rolling CafĂ© (Norton, Ohio): Try the pickle fries ($5), deep-fried dill pickles with a side of “awesome sauce.” 
  • Boca Loca Burrito Factory (Cleveland): The Supermodel ($8), a big-ole burrito for vegans made with zucchini, squash, bell peppers, onion, cilantro-lime rice, black beans and habanero salsa.
  • Premier Crepes (Akron, Ohio): Sweet tooths will want to dig into a nutty version of a S’mores crepe ($7) made with marshmallows, graham crackers and nutella.
  • Proper Pig Smokehouse (Cleveland): Demolish your hunger with this adorably adorned mobile eatery’s Proper Slopper ($12), a monster sandwich of beef brisket, pulled pork, sausage, bacon and cole slaw.
  • Off the Griddle (Cleveland): Grab an iced coffee made with Rising Star brew. A 16-ounce pour is just $3.
