PHOTOS: Reno Food Trucks Provide Diverse Dishes

Oct 16, 2017

With events like Food Truck Fridays and Feed the Camel becoming popular summer staples in Reno, food trucks are in high demand. As the food truck scene grows in Reno, residents are getting access to more diverse options. 

"We've come a long way in the past few years alone. There is now Korean, Hawaiian--you can find almost everything now, whether it be in a truck or restaurant. The food scene has grown quite expansively here," said Theresa Luke from Aloha Shack, a food truck that serves Hawaiian-Asian fusion dishes.

In this photo essay, our reporter Alexis Harris explores how food trucks are providing new choices for local foodies.
