Over the past decade, we've seen the food cart go from simple offerings to evolving into hot dogs to taco carts to the all-out gourmet battle. Today, the typical food truck has everything from fancy ethnic and fusion cuisine to wood-fired pizza and rotisserie chicken to tricked-out cupcakes and ice cream and everything in-between.
