Reston Summer Bucket List 2015: Lunch at a Food Truck

Food Trucks on Metro Center DriveEvery weekday in August, Reston Now will be offering suggestions for a Summer Bucket List — things to do, places to check out and activities to try in and around Reston before summer’s end.

Obviously, different ideas will appeal to different residents in different age groups. But we are open for ideas. If you have any “must-dos” of summer (even better: with a photo of you/your family participating in said event), email us at [email protected] and we will consider it.

Reston Summer Bucket List Item No. 3: Lunch at Food Truck

You are not going to wait in line for the empanada in January, are you?

That’s why August is an ideal time to have lunch at a food truck. Reston has a couple of spots where you can do that.

Business Center Drive, off of Sunset Hills Road between Wiehle Avenue and Hunter Mill Road, is a popular spot for food trucks. Each weekday, about a half dozen trucks begin business about 11 a.m. The offerings change daily.

This Thursday is also Reston Town Center’s monthly Food Truck Thursday. The first Thursday of each month during the spring, summer and early fall, trucks are parked by Town Square Park (Explorer and Market Streets) from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

August offerings:  Tortuga, BBQ Bus, Doug the Food Dude, Captain cookie & the Milkman, and PassionFish (on their patio).

    You’ll need to have a bucket to catch the vomit after you eat at the food truck.

      Ignorance is bliss. I generally like your sarcasm but you are way wrong here. There are number of food trucks that serve amazing fare.

    The food trucks have great food! If you don’t like to eat there, then that’s your choice, but you don’t have to hate on them. They wouldn’t be there if there was no demand!
