The Tale Of Two Food Truck Treats – A Win-Win

Who doesn’t like a food truck feast?  There’s something magical about coveting culinary carriers of cool and contrasting cuisines.  In other words, I like food trucks, too.  Here is a Tale of Two Food Truck Treats, events that won’t leave you feeling hungry. As the pandemic comes to an end, may we see more of these events in 2021?


MGM Springfield presented three food trucks outside on the Armory Square every Friday, starting at 11 am. Besides, some local favorites will be available to try while enjoying live music, games, and more.

“Derby de Mayo Weekend” successfully kicked off Food Truck Fridays on Friday, May 3rd. A performance by the local cover band Feels Good Drift added to the excitement of the maiden voyage of this event.

According to the MGM Springfield website, this Friday’s trucks consists of:

  1. Guac This Way – Enjoy classic Mexican favorites, including tacos, quesadillas, churros, and more.
  2. Man! Buns – Mixing Asian street food, bao buns, and a little bit of weird.
  3. Gelato – a classic Gelato Cart serving a variety of gelato flavors to satisfy your sweet tooth.
