Top 10 Most Influential Food Trucks

Posted: 10/14/10 11:01 AM ET

Gourmet food trucks are sweeping the country's streets. Once referred to as roach coaches, mobile food has made a strong comeback. Broadcasting their whereabouts on Twitter and other networks has replaced the need to be a brick and mortar business. Aside from the help of social media, it's the unique options like; Korean Tacos, shredded BBQ Pork on a Waffle, Creme Brulee, and Kobe Beef Sliders, that has really been the key to success for these mobile foodies. So with all the hype around these delicious mobile meals, here at Klout we decided to see which food truck is the most influential.

Coming in first, is The Big Gay Ice Cream truck from New York City. Serving soft serve ice cream with a twist, like their 'Salty Pimp' which is vanilla ice cream, Dulce de Leche, sea salt, dipped in chocolate. Coming in a second on Klout's list, The Grilled Cheese Truck, who started a little over a year ago, after entering the Los Angeles 7th Annual Grilled Cheese Invitational. They decided that the streets of LA needed more of the famous comfort food. @grlldcheesetruk offers anything from the traditional american cheese sandwich to a tasty 'Cheesy Mac and Rib'.

After Klout analyzed hundreds of the nation's trucks, it was determined that LA and NYC dominated the list, with a couple surprising results from Phoenix and Chicago. So here are the Nation's top 10 Food Truck Influencers.
