The next time you need a break, consider adding plenty of sand, sun, water, and fun. Enjoy an island retreat on Isle of Palms, where you’ll have something for everyone for a relaxing vacation any time of year. You’ll find an array of things to see and do, and you’re bound to hear your stomach rumble while you’re out. While there are many brick-and-mortar restaurants ready to serve you, sometimes you need to grab-and-go so the fun doesn’t slow down. You’ll find a variety of food trucks serving delicious eats to satisfy your appetite. Please note many of these are a bit further afield.
Operated by the Coastal Crust restaurant at Wild Dunes Resort, the truck brings the restaurant’s tastes out into the surrounding neighborhoods. The vintage truck has been fitted with everything needed to bring authentic wood-fired pizza to Isle of Palms. A separate serving bar is set up away from the truck so you can enjoy your pizza away from the heat of the flames.
Diddy’s Donuts and Coffee
If you find yourself closer to Charleston in the morning, stop by. The truck serves a “Smorgasbord” of mini donuts in a myriad of flavors. Add hot or iced coffee to your meal to start the day on the right foot.
Don’t let the name fool you. The truck offers delicious Italian fare where only the sauce has a touch of alcohol in it. Choose a chicken Caesar salad, garlic & chive gnocchi, or toasted ravioli to avoid the alcohol. If you want the kick, choose the Gnocchi alla Vodka, chicken rigatoni alla vodka, or the four cheese tortellini all with vodka sauce. Don’t worry, it’s not enough to impair the rest of your day in Charleston.
For a delicious menu of Asian, Latin, and Indian cuisine, you’ll want to make sure to stop by. The rotating menu means each visit will be unique. Choose from curries, bean dishes, pickled veggies, and more, all made with fresh seasonally available ingredients. Find it at a festival or other event, or have it cater your event.
If you’re looking for a gourmet hot dog, they’re your place to try. Known as the home of the original blow-torched cheese dog, they offer a rotating menu of other hot dogs trimmed with everything you can think of. Chili dogs, dogs covered with sweet and spicy Doritos, and dogs covered with some of your favorite pizza toppings are just the beginning. Their finished product weights a whopping ¼ pound – so come hungry! For $1 more, you can make your bun gluten free. They’re found roaming the streets of Charleston.
If you hit the Rebel Taqueria in downtown Charleston and liked what you tasted, you’ll love its food truck offerings. Their pop-up truck can be found at various locations around town, and events around town and further afield. Choose from some of the restaurant’s best dishes including nachos, quesadillas, burritos, tacos, and more.
Cast Iron Food Truck
Considered one of the Charleston area’s best-loved food trucks, the BBQ it dishes out is a mouth-watering must-have. Dishes include Carolina BBQ pulled pork, burgers, jerk chicken, and the “Notorious P.I.G. Sandwich.” Find them roaming the streets of Charleston, at an event, or hit them up for catering your event.
Charleston Caribbean Creole Food Truck
The food truck and take-out restaurant specializes in Creole-Caribbean fusion. Choose from items like sweet plantains, fried shrimp, jerk chicken, or Lowcountry curry goat stew, among others. You can find them roaming the streets of Charleston, Summerville, and Mount Pleasant, as well as festivals. Catering services are available as well.
Bangin’ Vegan Eats
If you’re keeping to a special diet, you’ll want to seek them out. Their 100% vegan dishes include fried cauliflower, bean burgers, plant-based hot dogs, and other delicious vegan selections. They serve the Charleston area.
