Believe it or not, there was a time in Lubbock when food trucks weren't so welcome around the city and even by some elected officials. But that was years ago and now it seems everywhere you go, a food truck is close by.

This Summer, the City of Lubbock is once again hosting Food Truck Alley in an "effort to educate and build Lubbock's food truck community". The City of Lubbock started this event back in July of 2022 and the event has grown ever since.

The main reason for the event is to streamline the food truck permitting process by doing both the Environmental Health and Fire Prevention inspections at the same place, same time, same location. After inspection happens, food can be served.

According to a press release the event will take place at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center and is planned for four different Tuesday's in the Summer.

This event takes place monthly on designated Tuesdays and will follow the Fire Marshal's Office and Environmental Health Department's regular inspection and permitting process available in NE corner of the Civic Center parking lot.

This event is open to the public and all fully permitted food trucks are invited to participate. Lubbock residents and visitors are encouraged to come enjoy the local food trucks on the following dates between 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.:

  • Tuesday, June 13*
  • Tuesday, July 18*
  • Tuesday, August 15*
  • Tuesday, September 12*

So if you are a fan of food trucks, and if you are reading this, there is a strong likelihood that you are, make plans to attend the Food Truck Alley.
