Where to Find the Best Food Trucks in the RVA Area

RVA Area Food Trucks

Food trucks have long been loved around the world, with some of the longest-running trucks in cities like London, Oxford, and Cambridge in the UK. Today, this global phenomenon has spread across the United States.

Not surprisingly, our area is on the cutting edge of this trend in the United States. Our REALTORS® agree--there's nothing like a local Richmond food truck for a scrumptious lunch.  

These trucks, which roam our streets, show up just in time for lunch, a festival or pre-game tailgating party to quiet the cravings of hungry bystanders with a cornucopia of fare from paninis and tacos to Asian fusion and funnel cakes.  

Here is our list of six favorite food trucks to visit.  While it is certainly not definitive,  it is a great "sampler" of where to find some of the best food trucks in our area. 

Note: Most food trucks in Richmond do not have fixed locations, although there are some areas of town that are more popular than others. To get the latest information on where to find your favorite truck, check out its website or visit Food Trucks In, which gives you live truck status.

  1. Bikini Panini 
    Launched back in 2017, Bikini Panini has hot, pressed sandwiches inspired by the cuisine of the Mediterranean and Cote d'Azur. You may also have seen it around many Richmond events since it operates a popular catering service. The Bikini Cubano is the classic that everyone adores: You can pair it with soup of the day, paella, or even a double-decker pizza.
  2. Boka Tako Truck
    Boka Tako Truck offers the classic taco truck experience. Associated with Boka Fusion Tacos, a popular spot for "Grill & Growlers," it means Taco Tuesday can be any day of the week here in Richmond. Premium tacos include such flavors as grilled fish, braised beef brisket, and pork belly. Burritos, bowls, and a number of salads are also available.
  3. Cheezilla Food Truck
    Cheezilla Food Truck is dedicated to the most comfortable comfort food of them all: The grilled cheese. You can have the classic grilled cheese of your childhood or dress it up for a more robust winter meal with a cup of hot soup. All soups, sauces, and dressings are handcrafted in small batches, and the sandwiches use quality meat and fresh produce
  4. Christopher's RunAway Gourmay
    Christopher's RunAway Gourmay has one of the longest histories in Richmond's food truck world: It dates all the way back to 1985. It's one of the best food trucks when you want fresh, hot pasta accompanied by salads made with a chef's flair. If you find something you simply can't do without, you can even buy many of the dishes by the pound. Yum!
  5. Curbside Creations
    Who's in the mood for some Cajun? If the answer is you, you're in luck! Curbside Creations offers your choice of Cajun seafood and American comfort food all in one place. Hankering for a po'boy? You should try the delicious fried gator po'boy – or the more traditional fried oyster, catfish, or shrimp. Curbside Creations keeps a convenient calendar of future locations on its website.
  6. Curry in a Hurry
    A comfort classic of both Indian and British cuisine, you'll never see curry the same way again once you visit Curry in a Hurry. This striking Union Flag-styled food truck dishes up true restaurant-style curry, tikka masala, vindaloo, and "Mum's Basmati Rice" among many others. Those who order in advance can enjoy the beef patties based on an 80-year old family recipe.

Moving to Your Henrico Home: Purge Before You Pack

Moving to a Henrico Home Tips for Packing

No doubt preparing for a move is a big deal, whether you're moving across town or the country. Are you moving from your current home, and feeling a little overwhelmed with all of the stuff that you'll have to take with you?

One of the best ways to simplify your move is to follow a straightforward rule: Purge before you pack. By getting rid of unnecessary items in your home--and we all have them--you can lighten your load, speed up the packing process, and maybe even save a bit of money in the process. Our real estate agents know what it takes to make a seamless move, and we've got some tips to help you prepare when moving to a new home in Henrico County.

Clearing the Clutter Before You Move

Let's say you've been shopping for homes in Henrico County, have found the right match, and now all that's left is to plan so that you're ready to make your move. Just one problem... where do you start, when there's just so much? If you've lived in your current home for a long time, then there's a good chance you've accumulated plenty of clutter, and there may be items stored away that you haven't even thought about in years.

If you want to make life easier, then it's time to purge before you pack, and decide what's worth taking with you to your new home:

  • Clean Closets and Decide on Clothes – Are your closets filled with too many years worth of clothes? That makes them the perfect place to start. Go through your closet, decide which clothes you can do without, which no longer fit, and which items have their best days behind them. Donate items that are in good condition, dispose of things that are worn, and consider consignment for valuable items you no longer need.

  • Donate or Sell Unwanted Household Items – Do you have furniture or knick-knacks that won't be making the trip to your new home? There are many charitable organizations which accept used furniture, which can be great for seeing your unwanted items given new life with someone who needs them. If there are furnishings you may use in the future, renting a storage unit is always an option.

  • Get Rid of Unwanted Electronics and Appliances – Unwanted electronics and appliances may be donated, though most organizations prefer to accept newer items less than 5 or 10 years old. Of course, items that still have high value may also be sold, providing one less thing to pack and a little extra money for your move.

  • Don't Forget the Pantry – A full pantry is a great thing... except when you have to move all of those cans and containers to a new home. If your pantry is stocked with items you'd rather not bring, donating to the local food bank is a great way to support a good cause and lighten your load.

  • Dispose of Hazardous Items Safely – Do you have paint, pool chemicals, fuel, aerosols, or fire extinguishers that won't be making the move? Moving companies will not allow these items on their trucks, so you'll want to get rid of them in an environmentally friendly way. Dispose of them safely at your local hazardous waste disposal facility.
