No more chasing down food truck locations, Atlanta Food Truck Park is the city’s first permanent food truck park. The park opened just last month and already it seems to be an Atlanta hot spot! It is open 7 days a week for both lunch and dinner. The trucks come and go so there is always a variety of different options. It is best to check their Facebook page (click here) or website (click here) to see who is setting up shop.

The park is located right on Howell Mill with ample off-street parking. Look for the big sign and colorful umbrellas.

Up to 15 trucks can be there at any given time, but I have found that there are usually 5 to 10 on the scene. Some of Atlanta’s favorite food vendors stop by, including Sweet Auburn Barbecue, The Fry Guy, Tex’s Tacos, King of Pops, and Mighty Meatballs.

Every truck is cash only (there is an ATM on site) and prices seemed to be in the $8-$10 range for dinner.

We picked a classic pulled pork sandwich from Sweet Auburn Barbecue with mac and cheese and coleslaw.

Sweet Auburn Barbecue. And don’t miss their Asian Mint Tea; it’s delicious!

We also chose tacos from Yumbii, a truck that blends Mexican and Asian cuisine.

The highlight of the meal were these amazing Sesame fries from Yumbii.

The fries have a secret “special spice mix” that gives the fries an amazing Asian flavor.

And, of course, a King of Pops to finish our meal!

There is ample seating in the picnic area right next to the food trucks, as well as a grassy hill near the parking area that is perfect for spreading out a picnic blanket and letting the kids run around. They have plenty of entertainment, including a bocce court and cornhole. Every Thursday night they have a live band, and some nights they have movies playing.

Food Truck Park is the perfect spot to meet a group of friends so that everyone can pick their own meal. And, it really is a great spot to bring the whole family. With lots of entertainment and space there is plenty to entertain kids!

The low down:

  • Location and Parking: The Park is located right on Howell Mill (1850 Howell Mill Road), right near the 75 and Howell Mill intersection.  The parking lot is found off of Emery Street which connects from Beck Street (off of Collier, near Willy’s and the Shell station).
  • Hours: Open 7 days a week. Lunch from 11 to 4 and dinner 5 to 10. Sundays 11 to 4
  • Alcohol: Food Trucks are not allowed to sell alcohol. You are allowed to bring in your own cooler of drinks. Make sure to bring plastic cups if you have glass bottles.
