Pork Belly Sandwich at Bacon Bacon
Everything's better with bacon, so at San Francisco food truck Bacon Bacon, everything — including the bacon-fried chicken sandwich and bacon grilled cheese — is pretty great. If you're narrowing the pork-packed choices to one, opt for the arugula- and runny-egg-topped pork belly sandwich, which is good for a late breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Pastrami Burger at Guerrilla BBQ Ultima
Move over, cheesesteak. Guerrilla BBQ Ultima's meaty, cheesy pepper-and-coriander-rubbed Pastrami Burger is a new Philadelphia classic. The pastrami-spiced and smoked patties, made from grass-fed beef, are available in limited numbers each day, so arrive early.
Spicy Thai Grilled Peanut Butter Sandwich at PBJ's Grilled
The ultimate comfort-food mash-up sandwich, this Thai-inspired grilled peanut butter sandwich from PBJ's Grilled in Portland, Ore., has orange marmalade, curry powder, Sriracha and coconut shrimp; it tastes like the sandwich equivalent of pad thai.
The Detention at Bernie's Burger Bus
You'll feel like the Fresh Prince at Bernie's Burger Bus in Bellaire, Texas, because this burger has bacon grilled cheese sandwiches for buns. It's just one of the king-size burgers served from the repurposed school bus.
Diablo Bison Burger at Bonetown Burgers
The Diablo is in the details at Bonetown Burgers, where the bison burger is slathered in habanero hot sauce. Don't worry: There's some blue cheese to keep the spice under control. There are plenty of alternative sandwiches for Boston's spice-averse as well.
The Lumberjack at Gorilla Cheese
There are plenty of melty, gooey, cheesy options at Gorilla Cheese in New York City, but the bacon, cheddar and apple grilled cheese is one of the truck's top sellers. Those with room to spare can finish with the S'mores Melt, made on graham cracker bread.
Gladiator Bun at Rome'n Chariot
Real-deal Italian comfort food is stuffed inside a giant kaiser roll at Rome'n Chariot in Toronto. You'll feel like a true gladiator when you bite into this double-stacked veal-and-eggplant sandwich.
The Lucky's Puccia at Lucky's Puccias
Puccia bread is the base for the wood-fired Italian sandwiches at Lucky's Puccias in Austin. Their signature item is simple yet delicious: chipotle aioli, basil oil, prosciutto, fresh mozzarella, tomato and arugula.
Akaushi Beef Sliders at Say She Ate
One of the fanciest bites you can get from a food truck is this simple-sounding slider in San Antonio. Say She Ate tops super-tender Japanese Wagyu beef with garlic confit mayonnaise, duck-fat-caramelized onions and Gorgonzola cheese, and serves it all inside a soft Hawaiian sweet roll.
Jerk Chicken Sliders at Braizen
Spicy jerk chicken is balanced out with a sweet pineapple-cilantro slaw at Canadian food truck Braizen in Calgary, Canada. The menu is ever-changing, but there's always at least one braised meat dish in the rotation.
Seitan Burger at Cinnamon Snail
Veggie burgers take a lot of knocks in the food world, but with two types of chiles, sauteed kimchi, pepper sauce and Sriracha mayonnaise, Cinnamon Snail in New York City is changing the meat-free standard.
Lobster Roll at Sam's Chowdermobile
San Francisco-area residents can get a taste of Maine with Sam's Chowdermobile's signature lobster roll. There's a twist, though: The roll is done "Connecticut style," aka served warm and tossed in butter. This dish is best eaten with Old Bay-spiced fries.
Hawaiian Bulgogi Burger at Chi'lantro
This Korean-Hawaiian fusion burger is one meal that helps keep Austin weird. Pair the pineapple and spicy mayonnaise-topped beef patty with Chi'lantro's other popular dish, kimchi fries.
The Hawaiian Five-O Wrap at Wrapper's Delight
Say a hip, hop, the hippie to the hip-hop when you chow down on this Hawaiian chicken sandwich from Wrapper's Delight in Nashville. OK, the singing is optional.
KGB Burger at Curbside Truck
Satisfy your sweet tooth and your salty cravings with the bacon praline-topped burger at Curbside Truck in Seattle.
Tempura Herring Sandwich at Chef Shack
Chef Shack fries to surprise with a new type of tempura fish: herring. The Minneapolis food truck specializes in unique dishes with plenty of homemade sauces, like the hot sauce-spiked tartar sauce on top of this sandwich.
GC Burger at Treehouse Truck
You'll want to camp out in an actual treehouse after devouring the doughnut-bun burger at Treehouse Truck in Orlando, Fla. A nap can be your dessert.
Yolko Ono at Fried Egg I'm in Love
So much wordplay, so little time at Fried Egg I'm in Love in Portland, Ore. The Yolko Ono is the breakfast sandwich spot's signature dish (with pesto, Parmesan cheese and a housemade sausage patty), but you can also try a Sriracha Mix-a-Lot or 'Rico Suave.
Macaroni-and-Cheese Burger at Mère Bulles
Go down South for a crazy fried macaroni-and-cheese-topped burger at Mère Bulles in Brentwood, Tenn. No matter what type of burger you try there, it's best paired with their homemade blue cheese chips.
Meatloaf Sandwich at Nosh
The leftover meatloaf sandwich of your youth just doesn't stack up to the one at Nosh in Seattle. Sauteed tomatoes and onions add extra flavor to the crispy loaf.
Oh Boy, Peauxboy at Dock & Roll
The shrimp po' boy will rock your world at Dock & Roll in Austin. If you're not in the mood for fried shrimp, there's also a lobster version, plus 14 other lobster rolls to choose from.
Mighty Melt at Burger Monster
The secret to the melty goodness of Burger Monster's Mighty Melt is caramelized cheddar cheese. They don't stop there, though. There's more cheddar on top, plus tempura onion strings, coleslaw, bacon and barbecue sauce. Surprisingly, that's not even the most-decadent item on the Orange County, Calif., truck's menu.
Flip ’n Patties Burger at Flip 'n' Patties
Flip 'n Patties' signature burger will definitely make a mess, but it's worth the pile of napkins. The Houston-based Filipino fusion food truck's signature burger has a stuffed-and-fried portobello mushroom on top, plus the truck offers five other burgers worth devouring.
