Celebrate National Food Truck Day in Buffalo

Food Truck Tuesdays are legendary in Buffalo. But there are many other times to check out the local restaurants on wheels.

Oct. 11 is National Food Truck Day.

Time to explore some of the best and most well-known food trucks in the area.

Here's a list of where to start:

Lloyd Taco Truck

It's all about the taco. But that's not all the spot has to offer. Tricked-Out Nachos - with your choice of protein (beef, chicken, pork or black bean) - burritos the size of your head, delicious pickled red onions and tonight's special, Big Daddy BBQ.

Check out http://whereslloyd.com to track down one of the trucks; four will serve tonight.

Chef's Restaurant On the Go

Iconic Chef's Restaurant, which opened in 1923 and still serves generations of faithful Italian food eaters at 923 Seneca St., debuted a massive food truck in 2015.

The red truck, from which you can buy a hearty portion of famed spaghetti parmesan - will post up at Woodland Place Apartments (4791 William St., Depew) at 4 to 6 p.m.

K-Cafe

Once stationed on Niagara Falls Boulevard, K-Cafe has taken to the streets, eager to please a primarily student population. The major draw? Thick, Korean-style burgers, topped with kimchi, bacon and other accoutrements.

The truck is scheduled to stop at Twenty 91 North (100 Herron Drive, Amherst), a hot-spot for University at Buffalo off-campus housing, at 5:30 p.m.

Lomo Lomo!

One of Buffalo's newest food trucks is considered innovative in the mobile-eating realm, with addictive cracked potatoes, Korean chicken and an ever-changing list of specials. The News' Andrew Galarneau featured the potatoes in his $5 meals centerfold, which you can read here, and also profiled the truck, below.

• Frank Gourmet Hot Dogs

These aren't your standard ballpark hot dogs. Check out the extensive menu, home of the Hogtied, a hot dog with bacon, barbecue sauce, cheddar cheese and an onion crunch.

Want hand-cut fries with that? They're really, really good. Find the truck here, but since they're not serving Wednesday night, you can still find Frank's food in EXPO Market.

These are just a few suggestions on where to start. Buffalo is home to more than 30 food trucks. Check out the extensive list and offerings, including types of cuisine and price ranges, at The Buffalo News' Food Truck Guide.

Your stomach is about to be very happy. Enjoy.
