Weekly food truck festival returns to Tognotti's

Local food trucks will gather once again on Thursday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Tognotti's Auto World (2509 Fulton Ave., near El Camino, Sacramento). It's the second in a line of weekly festivals featuring local mobile food vendors, all of which are part of the newly formed Sacramento Food Truck Alliance. Look for eats from Mini Burger, Drewski's Hot Rod Kitchen, Mama Kim, Chando's Tacos and the Leaven & Earth Sandwich Co.

Organizers of last week's festival estimated an attendance of about 1,000 folks. Lines were much shorter than April's SactoMoFo festival, where some 10,000 descended on midtown's Fremont Park and some waits reached up to four hours.

"This one went smoothly and was much more laid back," said Catherine Enfield, an organizer of SactoMoFo and food truck advocate. "The longest line was about a 30 minute wait for Mini Burger."

Next week's festival will be held at a new location, most likely in the suburbs of Sacramento county where food trucks won't be held to the city's 30 minute rule of parking for mobile food vendors. We'll share that location when it's confirmed.
