Food trucks in Dayton area keep trucking along during the pandemic

With the pandemic still holding the country in its ugly grasp, with municipalities nationwide— Dayton included—now requiring masks and more social distancing to try and prevent the further spread of COVID-19, Dayton-area food trucks, those delicious goodie wagons that seem to appear out of nowhere to keep our bellies full, have become more popular than ever.

Summer crowds are out and about and looking for something to do, and food truck rallies have become one of the more popular events for locals who just need to get out of the house for a while. And some of the more popular food trucks in the Miami Valley—Zombie Dogz, Mommaz Boyz, Thai 1 On and Cupzilla, for example—have wisely embraced the power of social media to keep their hungry fans informed of where they are at any given time.

Zombie Dogz has been one of the more popular area food trucks for nearly a decade—even growing popular enough to operate a brick-and-mortar location for several years. With all manner of franks served up with a variety of fresh, scrumptious ingredients—along with sides like the truffle mac and cheese—you can’t go wrong by stopping by that black horror-themed food truck. Mommaz Boyz, based in Clayton, serves up crepes, some sweet and some savory, that keep fans searching for the truck out week after week.

Upcoming food truck rallies include Yellow Cab Tavern’s Food Truck Rallies, held Wednesday through Sunday each week during the summer.
