Thanks to the quality of the food, mobility, and uniqueness in menu, food trucks are now the go-to for quick lunch breaks. Boston food trucks, in particular, offer a considerable amount of options. In order to cut down your decision time, here are some of our favorites:
Seafood on-the-go sounds intimidating, especially when it’s coming out of a truck, but Lobsta Love’s $16 lobster roll has crawled its way into the hearts of Bostonians. Other choices include clam chowder, lobster mac n’ cheese, and Asian crab rolls.

Specializing in what they say is”Asian-inspired eats,” Bon Me is one of the more common food trucks seen around the city. Their bright blue truck is hard to miss as as they’ve made their way around Boston. Choose from a sandwich, noodle salad, or rice bowl and layer on spice-rubbed chicken, BBQ pork, or tofu.

Roxy’s Gourmet Grilled Cheese promises innovative riffs on the classics. From their Green Muenster (Muenster, bacon, house made guacamole) to the Mighty Rib Melt (Fontina, braised BBQ short rib, caramelized onions), Roxy’s is quick, affordable, and delicious.
Mei Mei Street Kitchen sources their ingredients locally and focuses on seasonal harvest. Because of this, their menu is constantly evolving. Cold sesame noodles, shredded kale salads, tofu-based dishes; this is just a glimpse into what this sibling-owned restaurant has to offer.
The Cookie Monstah is the ideal truck to satisfy your sweet tooth. Its decadence comes from its freshly baked, chewy cookies combined with Richardson’s Farm’s ice cream. There are countless types of cookies and ice creams to choose from but The Salty Dog (salted caramel cookies with turtle ice cream) is a favorite.
