Hip and trendy, food trucks are the latest niche dining outfits to service Baton Rouge foodies. Although subject to the whims of weather and fickle equipment, these mobile restaurateurs hit the streets as often as they can to serve fresh, tasty street food to waiting diners at different locations each day—and they're using Web 2.0 technology to spread the word, via social media sites like Twitter and Facebook. Below, check out our list of the best on-the-street-eats in Baton Rouge. Goyaya's Gourmet Food TruckWhat they serve: Fresh crepes in both sweet and savory varietiesWhere you can find them: Facebook, Twitter, their websiteOwner Kevin Black has one piece of advice for fans of his hot-off-the-griddle creations: Get there early. "I can only pack so much into the truck," he laughs. Lines form outside the little white truck quickly, but patience pays off with mouthwatering crepes, like the already-popular chicken caprese, stuffed with herb-soaked chicken, roma tomatoes and aioli sauce, or a delicate treat like a Nutella and raspberry-wrapped dessert. Black keeps it fresh with an ever-rotating menu of choices, depending on what's in season—keep your eyes peeled for his soon-to-debut Vietnamese crepe! Ninja SnowballsWhat they serve: The classic icy Southern treat in an abundance of flavorsWhere you can find them: Facebook, Twitter, their websiteBaton Rouge's original social-media surfers, Ninja Snowballs are still going strong in their brand-new big red truck, slinging sweets until the weather turns cool. Taking cues from their sneaky namesake, they forged the idea of mobile find-us-to-feast dining, proving that citizens of Baton Rouge don't mind a little extra research if it means access to tasty treats. Taco de PacoWhat they serve: Piping-hot soft flour or corn tortillas, stuffed with your choice of tasty toppings Where you can find them: Facebook, Twitter Brainchild of the same minds behind Ninja Snowballs, Taco de Paco's orange truck has had major success on Red Stick streets with de-Lectable and de-Licious Mexican food. Choose from chicken, steak or mushroom filler, and add your choice of toppings, from eggs and potatoes to rice and refried beans. An individual taco will run you just $2.50, and two tacos plus chips, salsa and a drink is a bargain at $7.
