El Camión up for country’s ‘Best Food Truck’

The Food Network is doing a nationwide search for the country’s best food truck and Ballard’s newest mobile eatery, El Camión is in the running.

The El Camión truck is parked in the Mud Bay parking lot (5314 15th Ave NW).

The winning truck will receive a $10,000 prize and the opportunity to appear on the next season of The Great Food Truck Race. Other Seattle trucks vying for the top spot are Maximus Minimus, Molly Moons ice cream, Skillet, Hallava Falafel and Marination Mobile (currently in sixth place.)

Voters can submit up to ten votes each day. To vote for El Camión text FT159 to 66789 (text message rates apply) or go online to vote for any food truck.

  1. I didn’t even know about these guys! I usually go to Marination Mobile on Fridays, though, so they have been getting my votes lately.

  2. That’s great to know. I’ll give them a try.

    But you have a typo. It’s The Great FOOD TRUCK Race, not The Great TRUCK FOOD Race.

  3. I love people that think that because the food is served from a mobile truck that it’s more likely to be unsanitary. It means shorter lines for me. :)

    Seriously, I bet your favorite brick & mortar restaurant has a bigger cockroach & mouse problem than any mobile food truck.

  4. I have been chatting with a few of these wonderful food trucks and they prepare most of their food off site and that way these gourmet trucks can be more efficient. some of these dishes take a while to produce. I voted for El Comion and am so happy for them. Cheers!

  5. Just happened to stop there for the first time today. Pulled pork burrito was superb and big enough for two meals. Lots of customers in line. They’ll get my vote.

  6. Who decided on these specific trucks were the ones we wanted to vote on, and why didn’t Ballard’s own Parfait Ice Cream make the cut? Soooo much better than the Molly Moon’s truck.

  7. Noooo….all the attention increases lines and more often than not decreases quality. Marination used to have daily specials, like their awesome pork torta. Gone are the dishes that take too much time to prepare during insanely busy lunch rushes.
