COMING SOON: Food Truck Rumble CLT

The Queen City's finest drive-able dining establishments face off to win the Golden Spork.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Two food trucks, only one Golden Spork. Which team will take down the competition in Food Truck Rumble CLT?

Each week, two of the Queen City’s finest drive-able dining establishments are facing off in the ultimate showdown of flavor, flair, and finesse.  WCCB News Rising’s Derek James hosts the competition as the trucks throw down in a themed culinary battle du jour.  Rumble categories include the “Char-LIT n Loaded Face-off,” “Taco Takedown,” “BBQ Battle,” and the “American Classic Challenge.”

First to enter the food fight arena are What the Fries, the Charlotte-based food truck that recently opened a brick and mortar location, versus new chew on the block, Nacho Average Food Truck.  Future competitors include The Hillbilly Philly , A Worthy Dog, Grumpy Grandpa MX, Taco Bout Nachos, Dan Good Que, and K&N BBQ.

Each competition is judged by a panel of #CLTFoodies who evaluate the dishes on three criteria:  First Impression, Overall Taste, and WOW Factor.

Who will tackle the taste-off? And who will bite the dust?

Don’t miss Food Truck Friday on Rising, starting September 3rd at 8am on Charlotte’s CW.
