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.

Albany definitely has a food truck for everybody!

When ordering, the description of the Chicken sandwich meal said it included fries and a drink. However when I went to pick up my order they stated it did not come with a drink. I received a text message that my order was ready, however I waited 10 minutes for my order when I arrived, then when I received it did not come with fries so I had to wait again and it did not come with bbq sauce when they said it was on the bottom.

Amazing food as always! Now I even get orders from friends and invite them to grab lunch at Deaderick. Always the best vibe.

The burrito is amazing, I have to have it every time I'm in the office on Thursdays. I just got my coworker hooked on them too and he even went to culinary school. It's just that good! Perfect size, perfect ingredients, don't change a thing!

The first time I tried Shula's was a gift in a Sun City's clinic. I loved it, now every time I know they visit us in the community, I get my dinner from them. Great taste guys!

Great plantains and ropa vieja. Website menu said it was Cali steak but I like ropa vieja more. Y'all might wanna update the online menu to note that, and that the burritos don't come with plantains inside

food was outstanding! Yum! My only downside is that I ordered rice and I got lettuce. It was still good though. ❤️
