If you were at Chalk the Block earlier this year, and you made your way over to the food court on the street in front of San Jacinto Plaza, you saw all the food trucks that were pumping out fantastic food.  Good news - there will be food trucks during regular business hours coming soon to Downtown El Paso!

If you've ever had to eat downtown, you know that there is a limited range of restaurants available.  There are good ones, but there are a lot of mediocre ones as well.  A group of investors who have bought three downtown buildings are out to change all that. 

They are turning a parking lot on Mills near Stanton, across the street from the Downtown Post Office, into an impromptu food truck food court.  Crave Kitchen & Bar, Create Gourmet Eats, and Tacoholics will be the first three trucks in the food court, and one or two more might be added later.  The food trucks will open November 19th, and be open open weekdays, 11am - 4pm.

Personally, I can't wait!  I love the idea of gourmet food trucks and hanging out downtown!
