Catchy and clever food truck names

Listed in alphabetical order with my favorite names shown in bold. Additional suggestions are welcome, as  long as they are (or were) real food trucks. While some of these food trucks no longer may be open, the names are still great. Thankfully, some have just moved on (or evolved) into brick and mortar locations. Peace!
