The 5 best food trucks in St. Augustine

By Sarah Glynn |

Big Island Bowl


Favorite: Mana Kea Bowl with Dragonfruit

This health-conscious food truck can be found just a short walk across the Bridge of Lions. Never tried an Acai bowl? You’re missing out. This nutrient-packed frozen treat is the perfect way to jump start your morning or keep you cool during these hot Florida Summers that are steadily approaching. The menu features Acai bowls with seasonal fruits like blackberries, strawberries and blueberries. You can also add on honey, granola and cacao nibs. For the average price of about $8-$9 per bowl, these healthy treats cannot be missed here in St. Augustine. Not feeling an Acai bowl? Big Island also has a fantastic drink menu like Yerba Matte Tea, Mojito Lemonade and various smoothies.

Pro-tip: Replace the Acai with the new Dragonfruit option to give it that bright pink color with all the flavor.

Favorite: Margarita Neapolitan Pie &amp Shrimp Po Boy

Looking for a five star, gourmet meal served on a food truck? Look no further than Uptown Scratch Kitchen, currently located in the Dos parking lot. If you don’t mind paying a few more bucks, this truck offers food options you thought you would only be able to find in a standalone restaurant. Trying to change up date night? Try this food truck, which stays open until 7 p.m. Monday thru Saturday.

Pro-tip: Two people can easily split a Neapolitan pie — the crust is thicker and absolutely delicious.


Crave Food Truck

Favorite: Create your own salad, with chickpeas, purple cabbage, broccoli, chives and grape tomatoes with a honey dijon dressing.

A true fan favorite, Crave food truck is one of St. Augustine’s best kept secrets. The recently expanded food truck on Riberia Street, run by Flagler Alumnnus Andres Guardiola, features a bigger truck and the addition of a weekly, hot special. With everything bought local and as fresh as can be, every wrap, salad and smoothie is unique and delicious. Their location right along the water makes this outdoor seating location ideal for a beautiful day.

Pro-tip: Try a ‘Mama’s Guava Bar’ in the chocolate chip flavor, created by Guardiola’s brother.


Nalu’s Food Truck


The beach has become synonymous with fish tacos and there’s no better place in St. Augustine to get the freshest fish tacos than Nalu’s. Located appropriately in the Surf Station parking lot, this food truck stands apart from any seafood restaurants in the area. Nalu’s features a wide range of fish options to choose from like Mahi, Wahoo and Yellowfin Tuna. You won’t find just any fried, Baja fish tacos here. Nalu’s emphasizes healthy eating and their menu reflects that, featuring tuna bowls and wraps that are just as delicious as their fried counterparts.

Pro-tip: Nalu’s has limited parking and seating to grabbing something on your way to the beach is the way to go!
