The Ultimate Guide to (40!) Fort Collins Food Trucks

It’s no secret that the food truck game is strong in Fort Collins. Just take a walk through town, visit a local brewery, or attend a community event, and you’ll know. Food trucks are popping up left and right, offering delicious and affordable meals on wheels.

In fact, the growing number of food trucks in this fleet means there are several legal changes underway, that while controversial and disheartening to many, keep in mind brick-and-mortar businesses as well. And thankfully, food trucks aren’t going anywhere any time soon.

But one thing has not changed — and that’s Fort Collins’ love for food trucks. That’s why we decided to park the top local food trucks on one convenient list, split up by category. We’ve also provided the best way to track these ever-moving trucks down, so you can stay updated on their whereabouts when the next hunger strike hits!
