Topping the list is Rollin Fatties. Located at 1430 Tulane Ave., the food truck, Mexican and Latin American spot is the highest rated food truck in New Orleans, boasting five stars out of 149 reviews on Yelp.

This joint is rolling up gluten-free burritos and slinging street tacos on weekdays only. Rollin Fatties doesn't wrap red meat in anything — instead, Yelpers rave about the nachos and street tacos with red cabbage slaw. 

2. Taceaux Loceaux

Next up is West Riverside's Taceaux Loceaux, situated at 5535 Tchoupitoulas St. With 4.5 stars out of 119 reviews on Yelp, the food truck and Mexican spot has proven to be a local favorite.

This mobile taqueria specializes in taco options like the Messin' With Texas filled with brisket, the Carnital Knowledge stuffed with pork, the All Hat No Cattle crammed with black beans, and the Jane Deaux packed with braised greens. Don't forget to sample the avocado fries. 

3. Fete au Fete

St. Roch's Fete au Fete, located at 2381 St. Claude Ave., is another top choice, with Yelpers giving the Creole and Southern spot 4.5 stars out of 60 reviews.

Track this truck down at the St. Roch Market and check out Southern comfort items like shrimp and grits, crawfish poutine, red beans and rice, muffuletta sandwiches, and chicken and waffles. 

4. The Fat Falafel

The Fat Falafel, a food truck and Middle Eastern and vegan spot, is another much-loved go-to, with 4.5 stars out of 30 Yelp reviews. Head over to 3141 Ponce De Leon St. to see for yourself.

"One of the greatest vegetarian food trucks around," Yelper Rachel R. said. "Their food absolutely never disappoints. As a vegetarian in NOLA it can be hard to find really delicious food like this, but Fat Falafel is always great. A must try, especially if you're vegetarian."

5. Ms. Beasley's

Over in the CBD, check out Ms. Beasley's, which has earned 4.5 stars out of 26 reviews on Yelp. You can find the food truck at 1415 Tulane Ave.

"You don't have to be a vegetarian to love this food truck," Yelper Deanna D. said. "Its the healthiest truck out there. I usually get the quesadilla or veggie burger. Both come with a delicious fresh salad with an awesome dressing. The food is very fresh, flavorful and filling. And Ms. B. always brightens your day.  She's so sweet and full of life."
