Did you know there are over 24,000 food trucks across the United States, according to prestigefoodtrucks.com? The first food trucks were chuck wagons, invented by Charles Goodnight in 1866 for cattle drives out of Texas.

In the 1890s, these mobile food sellers began targeting university students, selling sausages outside dorms at Yale, Princeton, and Harvard, among others. It wasn't until 1936 that the Wienermobile, the first modern-day food truck, began showing up at schools, orphanages, parades, and hospitals. What's it like to drive the Weinermobile?

The year 2008 was a pivotal year in the history of food trucks. Between the popularity of social media and the country's growing infatuation with street food, the food truck concept began to grow extremely popular. With that said, let's take a look at some of Danbury's more popular food trucks.
