Where to Find Food Trucks in Colorado Springs

There is a delicious fleet of food trucks roaming the Springs. Here's an overview of what they serve and where they gather.

For over a decade, food trucks have had a meteoric rise as a moto-alternative to brick-and-motor, and they keep on truckin’ along. What is it about these wheeled wonders that keeps them from simply being a fad? Do they bring back nostalgic memories of going to the fair? Is it their fun, focused menus? Is it because you are supporting small — very small  business? Maybe it’s the simple exchange of food through a window.

It could be any number of reasons, but there is certainly a large number of options for an excellent rolling-eatery experience beneath Pikes Peak. The streets of Colorado Springs are filled with flavor thanks to these fueled food options. To whet your appetite, here is a primer on standout local food trucks and where to find them — plus some insights from local diners and food truck regulars.

Food Truck Trackers

Checking social media is a great way to find food trucks and their business hours. Many trucks utilize Facebook to post their location, schedules and menus, because these mobile kitchens often move to serve events or reserve a spot at a brewery. Local brewers often post food truck schedules to social media as well.
