On the second Saturday of each month from 6pm – 1am, just across Sixth Street from the El Cortez, is a fantastic community event with local bands, djs, artists and food. Admission to the Vegas StrEATS festival is free, and it’s easy to come and go throughout the night, sampling the wares of the various food trucks.
Since we first discovered the great gourmet food trucks of Las Vegas, we’ve made it our mission to try out some of the most highly recommended trucks and share our experiences with you. In the last few months we caught up with Bad Ass Coffee downtown by the courthouse and Fukuburger outside MadHouse Coffee.
Chasing around the trucks is fun, but having them all gather together in one place is even better! Especially when I happen to be staying across the street. If only I had an unlimited appetite I could try them all!
I had to return to Bad Ass for a frozen mocha, and say “hi” to John, the truck’s friendly wild-eyed proprietor. After that, I followed his suggestion and hit up Sin City Wings. John was the one who convinced me to try out Le Thai on East Fremont. He hasn’t steered me wrong yet.
Later on, I finally got my hands on some of the famous Big Easy Balls at the Sauced truck. More on that coming soon.
- There is a gate, but admission is free. They check bags, so leave your weapons and contraband at home.
- There are no tables, no seating. Be prepared to eat on your feet, and order accordingly.
- Drinks are available (beer and shots) at a single beer tent towards the front.
- You also get local artists, local musicians and local DJs. Plan to hang around a while and take in some local talent!
- The lineup of food trucks, musicians and artists varies from month to month – it’s never the same experience twice!
