Jay Torres and food truck etiquette

28 May 2012

I love street food.

Jay Torres, who used to work on a food truck, has some great lessons in food truck etiquette to share. Listen up.

I’ve been wanting to write something like this for awhile, but I didn’t want to do it while I was still working on a truck. I didn’t want to make it seem like I was a jerk and potentially alienate some customers. Now that I’m no longer in that line of work, I thought I’d write some things down to help your food truck experience.

I love how practical his last tip is - simply to throw away your trash. Usually when I order truck food I ask for "everything on it" and leave it at that.
