QUIZ: Are You a Food Trucks Superfan?

by in Shows, August 6th, 2013

Food Truck RaceThe Great Food Truck Race not only tests to see that the food truck teams can make good food and earn their share of profits, but it also tests the teams’ resilience in off-the-cuff challenges. At the end of each week, the team with the least amount of sales goes home, but oftentimes a win in a truck stop challenge can move a team from last place to the winner’s circle. It’s anyone’s game.

Any fan who has watched the show these past three seasons might remember how crazy some of the challenges have been. And Season 4, which begins August 18 at 9pm/8c, will be no different. But until the season premiere, here’s your chance to prove your knowledge to see how well you remember the teams and challenges from the last three seasons.

The Great Food Truck Race Hits the Road for Season 4 with New Teams, Trucks and Cities

by in Shows, July 17th, 2013

The Great Food Truck RaceThe Great Food Truck Race, hosted by Tyler Florence, kicks off Season 4 on August 18 at 9pm/8c with new teams who are hitting the road for the longest route in the history of the series, 4,181 miles to be exact. Much like last year, these competitors are not seasoned food truck operators; instead the teams are made up of talented cooks who have dreamed up unique food concepts and want to turn their dreams into a reality, which is to operate a food truck business.

Eight teams of three are provided with a truck for the cross-country race. Each episode will test the teams’ resilience in a series of challenges and the team that has made the least in sales will be sent home packing. In the end, only one team will win the grand prize of $50,000 and the keys to their truck.

On the Road: Boston Restaurants With Mass Appeal

by in Shows, October 2nd, 2012

on the road boston
The final two teams of The Great Food Truck Race cruised into Boston, which was the first leg of a three-city tour they had to conquer on the road to the grand prize. Boston is already filled with great food trucks, so the town was extremely welcoming to Nonna’s Kitchenette and Seoul Sausage. Tasked with a Truck Stop to come up with a “wicked-awesome lobster dish,” Nonna’s left the city with a $500 credit for their lobster cakes and Seoul was left to shuck six bushels of clams. While the credit gave Nonna’s an advantage, it was short-lived. After a three-city finale, Seoul Sausage took home the grand prize.

For our final Food Trucks city-by-city guide, compiled by the On the Road app and website, we’re exploring the best that Boston has to offer.
