10 Mouthwatering Black-Owned Food Trucks in Atlanta

The Blaxican

Will Turner’s “The Blaxican” repeatedly tops all of the best food truck lists. Why? Because he makes “comida for your soul!” Their blaxi-sweet fries, buffalo chicken tacos, and collard green quesadillas are the truth. In short, soul food and Mexican food are some of the best cuisines out there, and when you combine the two, you get Blaxican MAGIC.

Cafe Bourbon Street

There’s a cajun food truck setting up shop at popular food truck park Triton Yards with a line that stretches on and on and on most weekends. And the reason why is pretty simple: big, powdery beignets. Jambalaya egg rolls. Bourbon ranch fries. Cajun Shrimp baskets. And the portions are generous, too! Check them out on Instagram for their schedule and go see what the hype is all about!

Flavor Rich Restaurant

You’ve got to love a hidden gem and Flavor Rich Food Truck/Restaurant is truly that. This food truck, nestled on Buford Highway in between Suwanee and Duluth, has just opened up a permanent brick and mortar location in the same area. Expect amazing eats like chicken and waffles, lobster rolls, and fish and grits. There are also chef’s specials frequently so you’ll have to keep coming back time and time again to try it all!

Love At First Bite 

Are you ready to fall in love? We sure are, and we may already have–there’s some seriously good stuff happening at Love At First Bite, including a pretty ridiculously delicious Heartthrob Burger! Or if that doesn’t tickle your fancy, their loaded jerk chicken fries, cajun shrimp pasta, and buttermilk shrimp po boy just might. Find Love At First Bite at Glover Park Brewery and Triton Yards most days, but follow them on Instagram to keep up with their schedule. 

Paige’s Pastries & Bistro

Paige’s Pastries & Bistro is our new favorite discovery. Started by husband and wife duo Paige and Craig Bailey, this food truck does more than just phenomenal cheesecakes (though they KILL the game on that too–get the strawberry crunch). They’ve also got mouthwatering savory creations like their jacked up mac burger, which consists of a three cheese mac and cheese with BBQ chicken served over a burger with a side of cajun fries. Yeah. It’s nuts! Also phenomenal is the peach cobbler eggroll, so be sure to order it for a mix of savory + sweet!

Wonderful Tasting Food (WTF!) Food Truck

Great Atlanta spots like Cafe Sunflower and Slutty Vegan first proved to us that vegan food does not have to be boring, but if you need further proof, then just look at what they’re cooking up at WTF! (Wonderful Tasting Food) Food Truck.  This ain’t your average veggie bowl–it’s vegan fast food that’s a glorious sight to behold. Find them posted up in Triton Yards or the Howell Mill Food Truck Park most days.
