Wondering where to find the best food trucks near you?
Hoodline crunched the numbers to find the best affordable food trucks in Indianapolis, using both Yelp data and our own secret sauce to produce a ranked list of the best spots to fill the bill.
1. Simply Divine Cupcakes
Topping the list is Simply Divine Cupcakes. This cupcake bakery, which has a stall in Indianapolis City Market at 222 E. Market St., also operates a cupcake truck, from which it sells its nearly 100 varieties of signature cupcakes. Boasting five stars out of 22 reviews on Yelp, it is the highest-rated affordable food truck in Indianapolis. (Visit the business's website for more information on its truck.)
Yelp can tell you a thing or two more about Simply Divine Cupcakes.
"Simply Divine Cupcakes was born from a love of sharing good food with friends and family," according to the business's Yelp profile. "It began as a small booth at local farmers markets and grew to include a cupcake truck, a small retail shop, and wedding and event catering."
2. Nicey Treat
Next up is frozen pop shop Nicey Treat. Nicey Treat — which has a brick-and-mortar location at 655 Virginia Ave., as well as an ice cream truck and a "Nicecycle" ice cream motorcycle — offers ice pops in flavors like mango ginger, toasted coconut and dark chocolate sea salt, and with 4.5 stars out of 41 reviews on Yelp, it has proved to be a local favorite for those looking for a budget-friendly option. (See its website for more information.)
Yelper Anna D., who reviewed Nicey Treat on July 30, 2019, wrote, "Love this for an afternoon dessert!"
3. R&R Extreme Wings
Then there's R&R Extreme Wings, which operates both a food truck and a brick-and-mortar restaurant at 4361 N. Keystone Ave. This spot serves up chicken wings with choice of sauce and sides of fries, and Yelpers give it four stars out of 71 reviews.
