Here's How to Find Lunch on the Go

A quick lunch from a food truck can be perfect when you’re on the move.

See the menu outside the truck, tell the person inside what you want to eat! Or, if you’d like to arrange a special food truck visit for a larger group, many of them are happy to plan with you in advance.

Arlington’s robust food truck scene has something for everyone, from Vietnamese pho, authentic Mexican tacos or Texas BBQ.  You’ll find quick bites between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. throughout Arlington’s neighborhoods, especially near Metro stations.

In the Rosslyn neighborhood, outdoor seating on the corner of Wilson Boulevard and North Kent Street means you can sit and enjoy your food. You can also find the food trucks in Rosslyn at 19th Street (between Lynn and Kent Streets) and Pierce Street (between Clarendon Boulevard and Wilson Boulevard).

In the Ballston neighborhood, North Stuart Street is a hot spot for food trucks near Metro. And you’ll also find them near Arlington Courthouse.

On Thursdays, find food trucks in the Crystal City neighborhood at 18th and Crystal Drive, and 201 12th Street.
