16 Amazing Food Trucks in Northwest Arkansas

Food trucks are the place to go in Northwest Arkansas for some of the best eats you’ll ever find. From down home cooking to world cuisines, scrumptious desserts, and ice cream, food trucks have created a whole new meaning to the phrase, “Let’s go out to eat.” For me, I just love the variety that food trucks seem to offer. And I really love a relaxing meal outside with my family.

When I first started traveling to Bentonville for work back in the day, I was introduced to my first food truck; I definitely needed to get out more. It was Hammontree’s, and it was parked right off the Bentonville Square. That was when I ordered my first ever Cheebacca (grilled cheese on sourdough with bacon and grilled pork), and my world was forever changed.

Since that time, it seems like there’s a new food truck popping up every time I turn around. But hey, I’m not complaining, and neither is the community it seems. Food trucks are hoppin’ around our corner of Arkansas, whether you’re at the farmer’s market, at work, or out and about in town. Just keep your eyes open, and you’ll likely see one of our amazing food trucks right around the corner.

While it was hard to narrow this list down, I couldn’t list every single food truck in Northwest Arkansas. So I thought of a few of my own favorites, sought out local friends for their favorites, and put together a list, alphabetized by town first, then name. This list is a great start if you’re like I was and have never tried a food truck. Start here and enjoy every bite!
