Good Waffles & Co.

Good Waffles & Co. serves fresh handmade bubble waffles that they create from scratch daily. Try the classic Chicken-N-Waffles, which comes with juicy fried chicken crisped to perfection, topped on a fluffy bubble waffle and drizzled with a sauce of your choosing.

You can see where the food truck will be by checking the event calendar on the company’s website.

Little Manila

This popular food truck in Charlottesville prepares authentic Filipino cuisine. Pancit, Lumpia, and Filipino BBQ are all stable and well-known dishes at Little Manila. Pancit is a classic Filipino noodle dish with rice noodles and vegetables, cooked in chicken stock with spices. Lumpia is a spring roll filled with ground pork and vegetables. Unlike the typical American-style barbecue, the Filipino BBQ is marinated thinly sliced pork loin over rice. Little Manila’s posts their schedule on the company’s Facebook page. If you’ve never had Filipino cuisine, you’ll wonder why you waited so long to try it! 


Describing itself as a “local organic superfood Mexican fusion food truck,” FARMacy is another locally owned and operated food truck in Charlottesville. Starting from humble beginnings FARMacy continues to grow in the local food scene. With a passion for fresh, local organic ingredients, FARMacy offers a more sophisticated version of street tacos. The menu is adventurous, experimenting with unique flavor combinations and textures. Rather than a traditional tortilla, they serve the Super Naan Taco on a garlic naan with al pastor pork, lettuce, cilantro, onions, finely chopped kale, feta, and super guac. FARMacy is vegetarian and vegan-friendly.
