What: What better end-of-the-night-food is there than a steaming cup of french fries? This truck will pull up to your wedding and serve your guests some bangin’ deluxe fry options like the Balboa Bubba fries, which reminiscent of a bacon cheeseburger on a bed of fries. Plus, the truck offers over 10 potato varietals. 10!
Where: The trucks live in Hopewell, New Jersey and due to their age, don’t like to travel beyond 30 minutes away. However, Nomad has brick and mortar shops in Center City and New Jersey.
What: If you’re having a vintage-inspired wedding, this pizza truck will fit right in — Nomad serves their pies out of a classic REO Speedwagon truck, stocked with a wood-fired oven, a fridge, and even sinks. Gluten-free and vegan pizza options are available in their buffet-style all-you-can-eat catering package that will feed your guests for up to three hours.
Where: 3045 Edgemont Street, Port Richmond
What: This is one of the most sought-after food trucks in the city and, rightfully so because 1. Who doesn’t love tater tots? 2. They have an insane menu featuring over 10 gourmet toppings, over 20 deluxe toppings and just as many dipping sauces. As for their wedding packages, the cart offers three “tiers,” or packages, offering combinations of their tot offerings at different price points.
Where: 4300 Powelton Avenue, West Philly
What: SpOT Burger is a staple in the University City community, serving up gourmet hand-crafted burgers, weighing in at a half-pound each. For your wedding, we reccomend going with the unlimited burger bar, which is cooked on-site in SpOt’s signature yellow and red truck.
Where: In addition to their donut hub in Reading Terminal Market, Beiler’s has locations in University City and Lancaster; the “Donut Trailer” is only brought out for special events.
What: Infamous, if not downright famous, Beiler’s Donuts are a sweet staple here in Philly. Lines at their Reading Terminal Market outpost cause serious congestion in the market’s already crammed aisles. Cap off the your wedding night with a sweet treat for you and your guests — Beiler’s offers three packages, ranging from three hours and 600 donuts to eight hours and and 2,000 donuts.
Where: They’re nomads, so be sure to check out their calendar here to find out where they’re setting up shop.
What: Kung Fu Hoagies has a little bit of everything from pho to ramen, pad Thai and banh mi galore.

Where: Makes daily appearances throughout the city and New Jersey.
What: This Best of Philly winner is a fan favorite for its battered fried cheese curds — a Midwest specialty that locals have totally jumped on board with. They pair especially well with beer, and would be the perfect companion to any one of these local brews.
Where: Parked locally during the week.
What: If pizza is what you’re craving for your Big Day, look no further than Pitruco’s bright red truck. Their brick oven wood-fired pies are baked right in the truck, and they’ll also whip up an assortment of antipasti and meat and cheese platters to serve to your guests.

What: When Philadelphians want macarons (head chef Dan Tang is known for his creative flavors), they head to this brightly-colored truck in University City. For your celebration, Tang and his team can not only park the truck at your venue, but they’ll create a custom menu of desserts just for you.
Where: Truck is available for private events only; storefront located at 339 South 13th Street, Washington Square West
What: Thanks to the storefront that Gretchen Fantini opened in 2013, you can indulge in Sweet Box Cupcakes almost any day of the week. But for your Big Day, you’ll want to recruit her darling pink and brown truck (she started as a mobile business in 2011) to pass out sweet treats to your guests.
