Food Truck Fridays bring weekly mobile food court to Youree

Posted: Updated:

Food trucks are a tasty trend taking over cities from Austin, Texas to Miami, Florida.

With the addition of "Food Truck Fridays" in Shreveport, they could become the next big thing here in the ArkLaTex, as well. They line up in the parking lot of Collier's Custom Classics and Hot Rods on the corner of Youree Drive and Kings Highway every week, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

"We've been out here three weeks, and every time it gets better," says Adrian Walton of Salsitas.

It started with 6 mobile food vendors, and the number of trucks and hungry lunch-time crowds has grown in those three weeks. Customer Andrew Crawford says it's the variety that's bringing them in. "In one parking lot, you can get sweets, you can get Po Boys and tacos...all in one location."

Ange Posey, owner of Some Like It Hot, came up with the idea to bring the area's food trucks together to create the weekly food court and take advantage of the draw that variety would bring.

Those who can't take the heat can take heart: Food Truck Fridays will continue into the fall.
