Highway 301 food trucks

Food trucks aren’t only for big cities — Greenville has them, too! Find them at events, on streets and in parking lots. With a variety of options, you have the freedom to satisfy your cravings when they hit. Here are just a few of the trucks Greenville has to offer.

The Greenville food truck calendar lists dates and locations so you can know when and where to find your favorite food truck. Information on catering trucks, such as daily menus, is on the trucks’ individual websites.

Classic soups and sandwiches, anyone? The Hostmobile, one of Greenville’s new food trucks, has what you want.

The truck is part of Project Host — an organization that seeks to provide nutritious meals for Greenville residents who cannot regularly get them. Project Host, at first just a soup kitchen, has since expanded to include other outreaches. The most recent arrived in April 2019 — the Hostmobile food truck, driven by BJU culinary arts grad Marianne Harris.

The food truck is not just for underfed individuals. For three days a week — which are listed on the food truck calendar and the Project Host Instagram — anyone from the community can visit the truck. Menu items, also on the Instagram account, are creatively based on a soup kitchen menu. The other three days, the truck functions as a mobile soup kitchen. So go support this local charity and get a good lunch while you’re at it.

The Korean fusion food truck has brought its international flavors to Greenville streets since September 2018. Favorite orders include the bulgogi hoagie and the quesadilla coreano, both featuring Korean beef barbecue. Other entrees you might like to try are Korean fried chicken, spicy pork tacos, and veggie dumplings.
