Rating Baltimore's food trucks
By now, you probably know about the ubiquity of Baltimore food trucks. You can hardly walk down a street in the city without bumping into one. And that's a good thing. We have burger trucks, cupcake trucks, soup trucks. I've even heard rumors of a crème brûlée truck.
But which are the best? We decided to find out. (I know, tough assignment, right?) I ate at 11 food trucks serving lunch or snacks in Baltimore over the last month or so and rated them based on the variety of their menu, their price, wait time and, most important, taste. Most were good; some were great. Here are the results.
Note: Ratings are out of four stars, with four stars representing the best you're likely to find in Baltimore food trucks.
$ = $5 or less; $$ = $10 or less; $$$ = $15 or less.

There are three food truck rallies this weekend.
First on Friday, from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m., nine food trucks will gather at Johns Hopkins University. That’s going to be near the “Beach” in front of Milton S. Eisenhower Library, and there will be live music and beer.
The Gathering, the regular weekly rally, comes up to Penn Station on Friday night from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Live music will be performed by Baltimore’s own June Star. Discount all-you-can-drink wristbands are available through Missiontix, and the Parking Authority of Baltimore City will offer $5 discounted parking in the Penn Station garage.
Then on Sunday, from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m., there will be a "mini-Gathering" at a first-time event, the Hampden Flower Fest, Flea Market and Yard Sale, which will take place on Roland Avenue in between 36th and 40th streets.
