FOOD TRUCK WARS will be held October 20th, 2012 in the Channel Side District of Tampa, Florida. 40 Gourmet Food Trucks from all over the State will be on site to compete once again in 5 categories. There will be some new trucks debuting and some from previous rounds seeking revenge. Foodies will have a chance to vote on cuisines from Latin, Fish & Chips, BBQ, Gourmet Cupcakes and everything in between. The competition has been extended this round to include the prestigious Peoples Choice Award as well as Top Sales, Awesome Dessert, Largest Single Food Item, and the Culinary Chef Taste Off.
The Sunset Optimist Club and Wesley Chapel Optimist Club will be at the event working along with the shows promoters to raise money in support of its’ local charities.
The phenomenon of Gourmet Food Truck rivalry (all in the name of good fun, of course) has been a Huge Hit. At the inaugural event in March 2012 an estimated 30,000 people turned up. 37 food trucks sold out of food completely.

In addition to an amazing event, food trucks and foodies donated over $3,000 through the Oviedo Optimist Club.

    We enjoyed the variety, but really wished they served smaller portions to taste everything! I wanted a little of everything - not one or two things! Maybe that's just a personal problem, I had trouble just picking one thing!

    Hello All! I recently joined this group and I am very excited about going to this event on Saturday. Does anyone know if there is a charge to get it or is it per truck?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
