I'd go with Portland - food trucks are everywhere there, the quality of the food is top notch, and you can find pretty much any cuisine (and wierd things you'd never imagine, like eggplant fries with fresh garlic) you want. I love that they have food truck pod areas where you can choose from like 10 trucks in one lot, all serving until 2 or 3 am.

Baltimore is definitely one of the top food truck cities.

In terms of variety and volume, LA and NYC, definitely.

Austin and Portland may have the most per-capita, though.

I'm sure New York has great food trucks but I don't understand why a lot of Manhattan just has the hot dogs, roasted nuts and nasty soft pretzels. Ugh, seems like that's all there is sometimes.

How were San Francisco and Philadelphia left off the poll?
