Savannah’s Food Truck Scene on the Rise
Savannah is slowly coming around to the food truck craze, and starting just last month, a few food trucks are permitted to serve food between 10pm and 5am off of Johnson Square, with other designated food truck zones located at Daffin Park and the Scarborough, Minick, and Paulson sports complexes (read the most recent government updates here). While these hours will hopefully expand, Savannah is still testing the waters when it comes to regularly allowing food trucks to serve downtown, but food trucks are welcomed with open arms during events like St. Patrick’s Day, Savannah Food Truck Festivals, and River Street events.
Considering the fact that it can be tough to find a table during peak times in Savannah, food trucks will undoubtedly become a bigger part of our food scene. And as we’ve seen in food-centric cities Chicago, Austin, New York, Portland, and LA, it pays off to embrace more ways for talented chefs to share their delicious creations with us.
