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.

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.

In case you remember the name Peter Bjorn and John but can't recall their big song, here's "Young Folks":
