The dream team of food truck fare set to satisfy at the highly anticipated Wine & Food Festival event.

At our Wine & Food Festival's Burger & Beer Blast, you can find a lot more than just, well, burgers and beer. In addition to some of the best chefs in the area competing for the Best Burger Award, local food trucks have gathered to provide some different and distinct culinary options to spice up the day. Check out some of the attendees, from Southern barbeque to Italian pizza to cool, creamy ice cream!

What will you be serving at this year's Burger & Beer blast?
We are going to be serving our classic pie and our Mutzie “Margarita.”

What can customers expect from Abeetz?
We make personal New York style pizza, which is thin and crispy while still airy. We have recently become known for doing “after weddings” as guests are exiting the reception. We even make customized pizza boxes.

What is your inspiration behind the truck?
I offer what I think is the best version of the classics. I use my creativity on the other half of the menu with some fun items like our Avocado Toast Pizza and our BAE, which is a bacon, egg and cheese pizza with an everything bagel seasoned crust.

 

Crafty ’Cue BBQ

What can we expect from Craft ‘Cue at the Burger & Beer Blast?

We will most likely be serving North Carolina Pulled pork sliders and possibly something else havent decided exactly yet. Expect authentic pit smoked BBQ! We celebrate all the regions that makeup American BBQ.

What’s going to get attendees excited when they see your truck?

What will excite customers is definitely the look of our truck. With 4 foot flames surrounding the truck, we really can’t be missed. Inspiration behind our truck is simply being able to share our barbecue and passion with everyone that comes up to the truck. And, of course, our food. It’s made with pride and the highest quality meats and ingredients. We want to make people happy with our food.

What’s your most popular item?

The popular item is our North Carolina Pulled Pork sandwich, topped with our signature coleslaw and dill pickles.

 

Longford’s Ice Cream

What can attendees expect from Longford’s?
For over 25 years, we have served the people of Westchester. Customers and local foodies can expect a high quality product, small-batched with the freshest ingredients.

What's most exciting about your truck?
When people approach our truck, they are looking for that comfort food, that palate cleanser, [or] that "cheat day" snack.

Tell us about the inspiration behind the truck.
My inspiration behind the truck was being able to expand our business to other areas where there isn't a brick and mortar retail storefront. Also, [it allows] a customer the opportunity to invite Longford's to their event or gathering.

 

Jimmy’s Soft Serve

The cow-patterned truck of Jimmy’s Soft Serve definitely doesn’t hurt owner Jimmy Annicharico in his goal of bringing smiles to the faces of kids. Since 2008, the family-owned Jimmy’s Soft Serve has been moo-ving around Westchester County serving shakes, sundaes, ice cream and shaved ice. The trucks can be hired out for corporate events, weddings, parties or even family barbeques. And after an afternoon of burgers and beer, a fresh vanilla milkshake could be the perfect palate cleanser. 

 

Souvlaki Truck

What will you be serving at this year's Burger & Beer blast?
We will be serving our award-winning hand-cut oregano fries, pork and chicken souvlaki sticks.

What can we expect from Souvlaki Truck?

Customers can expect the same hustle and love that we put into every bite at our daily Central Avenue Location in Yonkers. Greek street food at its finest!

Tell us about your inspiration behind the truck.

My inspiration for the Souvlaki Truck concept was from my many childhood vacations to Greece. Every summer, there would be these awesome festivals with nothing but street food. Souvlaki, roasting meats and the smells of charcoal filled the air. My goal was to duplicate that experience back here in New York.

 

Tacos El Azteca

 

A post shared by @tacoselazteca on

With classic Mexican flavors and a brightly decorated truck, Tacos El Azteca is hard to miss. The low prices and excellent service, combined with delicious food, make this food truck shine. Centered in Norwalk, Connecticut, Tacos El Azteca makes for a perfect after-work stop-off or quick on-the-go dinner. While sipping on your beer or pondering your next burger choice, pick up a taco, quesadilla, burrito or torta to tide you over.

 

Walters Hot Dogs

What will you be bringing to this year's Burger & Beer Blast? 

Our snack-size Walter’s Hot Dogs with our signature Walter’s Mustard. 

What's your inspiration behind the truck? 

Our inspiration behind our truck is our pagoda building in Mamaroneck that generations of customers have come to love. It is replicated in the exterior design of our truck and we tried our best to bring a piece of nostalgia with us on the road.  

What's your most popular item? 

Besides the obvious, which is our Walter’s Hot Dogs, our homemade ice cream is very popular! We use it in our homemade milkshakes and Cowboy Shakes®, which are a must when ordering a proper Walter’s meal.
