Depending on which internet source is more believable, food trucks either originated in the 1870s in the form of a lunch wagon or one hundred years later as taco trucks in big cities in the United States to feed union workers. No matter where the invention of food on wheels came from, we can all be grateful that these unique mobile kitchens exist at all. 

The food truck culture is thriving in Greenville and you can get almost any fare you desire, depending on location and day of the week. But what are some of the more interesting dishes and how much will you sacrifice to stuff your face with them? We found out. And be sure to follow the food trucks on social media to see where they will show up next.
