Food Trucks in Albany

In eastern New York state along the banks of Lake Hudson lies the capital city of Albany. Known as the original center of commerce and politics in the state of New York, it is the oldest continuously chartered city in America. One of the original thirteen British Colonies, it was first chartered in 1686 and became capital in 1797. The area's recent history is rich in trade and transport, with boats and trains the established means of moving goods about. Albany has since grown into an educational and cultural city. It's a great place to live, with a balance of metropolitan, nature and culture you won't find in most cities. One big outdoor draw here is Lincoln Park, flanked by views of the Empire State Plaza, a massive business park that defines the city skyline. Venues like the Palace Theater attract major touring acts, a natural stop when traveling between the Big Apple and Montreal. Home to students and workers from all over the world, Albany's food truck scene is on the rise. Residents here need often need grab and go options when it comes to meals, and Albany's got the goods. Two of the most popular trucks here are The Iron Works, specializing in all your favorite Slow Smoked BBQ dishes, and Slidin' Dirty which is well known for it's epic Sliders and Pubfare. Albany definitely has a food truck for everybody!

The food was pretty good. I wish this soy sauce was not an extra cost. Also, the pre-orders were running very behind and the truck was still taking walk-up orders.

The burgers were fantastic. Great flavor on the meat and the toppings were terrific! Great onion petals and fries!

Fried shrimp and the Mac n Cheese were really good. Taste of the Shrimp n Grits was good as well...just could've had a few more shrimp bites in our serving.

Food was very good. However, wait was too long. Crew was extremely patient, but did not have enough people to handle all the orders.

My food was ready, packaged and waiting for me. This is the only time a best food truck provider has ever accomplished having my food ready on time. Thank you,!

I ordered the Red Curry with a Thai tea, and both were AMAZING! The red curry I got at a 3 spice, a nice heat that made my sinuses tingle with little to no burn. Just spice and flavor. The Thai tea a perfect blend of milk tea and spices. The white rice was also cooked to perfection, not too wet, not too dry. Definitely a 5/5 and I hope they come back to West End!

Overall very good - I like the orange chicken a little crispy on the outside, but maybe that's a personal preference. But the ordering process and pick was quick and easy.

Everything, the empanadas beef was so well seasoned and the queso fresco was a really good touch I've not seen before! The Cuban and pork sandwiches were fantastic, as was the papa rellena. My only regret is not being hungry enough to go back and get more, we'll be keeping an eye out for your truck!

They were great to work with! Food was great- everyone was happy! Our only small critique would be the garlic fries, although tasty could have tasted best if the garlic was cooked a bit more. They accommodated the photographer who needed to leave before the food was ready!!

Food was great, but there was an error on our order- the regular quesadilla meal that we ordered was supposed to have beef in it, but it was just cheese.
