Riff's Food Truck Jam

Riff's Food Truck Jam

The Nashville Food Trucks are at it again - bringing Nashvillians great food and fun in a unique way! Riff's Food Truck has started a weekly Friday evening event bringing food trucks together in one place along with music, a kids play area and a libations tent for the adults!

The Riff's Food Truck Jam, aptly named after the popular Nashville Food Truck who developed the concept, Riff's Fine Street Food and featured here on my blog before, has been going on for a couple of Friday's now and I was finally able to swing through and check them out!

My first stop was to the Jonbalaya Catering Truck to visit my buddy Jon

Jon was recently selected winner for "BEST RIBS" by the Nashville Scene Writers. Congrats Jon!

This Pina Colada Tea was cool and refreshing!

I love salads with warm chicken on top and this one was no exception! This one has mixed greens, tomatoes, dried cranberries, Tortilla Strips, French Fried onions, Cheddar Cheese and a vinaigrette Dressing...Yummy!

I can't forget to mention that Jon was pumpin' out THE HOTTEST R&B Jams right from his truck. He has strobe lights and everything! I hung around his truck for about 45 minutes just jammin' to the beats :-)

2nd Stop - Smokin Thighs

I'm sure you are expecting me to tell you how I loved the smoked poultry at the Smokin Thighs Truck. However, once I spotted Bacon Mac & Cheese on the menu.....nothing else mattered and I'm gonna show you why in just a second! LOL

This was no ordinary Bacon Mac & was loaded with diced tomatoes and Pineapples. Yep, I did it!

Libations tent for the adults

My 3rd stop was to the oh so popular Riff's Fine Street Food Truck

I was one of the first people to try one of their newest dessert items, Caramelized Banana Pudding Cronuts...OMG Good! The combination of doughy goodness topped with sweet caramelized drizzle was the perfect ending to a great food truck adventure :-)

The live entertainment was great! There were a couple of groups there that evening to keep the crowd entertained!
