Calling all local foodies! Hold on to your hats and prepare to pick a side, because the Daytona Beach Food Truck Wars will be here soon! The Food Truck Wars are taking place all over Florida in the search of the state’s best rolling restaurant! Over 40 of Florida’s finest gourmet food trucks are competing to be named winners in one of six categories: Corny Award, Casual Cuisine, Delectable Dessert, Top Sales, Ticket Taker and People’s Choice Award.

At the “Battle at the Beach,” the Daytona Beach leg of the competition, expect live music, a beer garden, children’s areas and a whole bunch of delectable dishes. Celebrity chefs will be brought in to judge the food, but they aren’t the only ones who’ll get to savor the flavors. You’ll have a chance to vote on cuisines from Latin America, England, the Caribbean and so much more. It’s like taking a trip around the globe without ever leaving Main Street. 

On average, food costs range from $3 to $18, with the typical entrée cost ranging from $6 to $8. And know that your snacking is for a good cause: A portion of all proceeds will be donated back to local charities! All in all, it’s a tasty, inexpensive meal with a fun atmosphere the whole family will enjoy. 

The “Battle at the Beach” will feature cooked-to-order specialties that vary from ethnic fusion dishes to classic carnival-type foods. And, with free admission and public parking, it’s an easily accessible event. Be sure to bring a lawn chair, and spend some time relaxing and listening to a live local band. Music, food and friendly competition — now that is a Saturday well spent!
