Traditional catering isn’t the only way to feed a hungry party crowd. Food trucks have surged in popularity in recent years, with gourmet menus to suit all tastes. Charlottesville has a slew of food trucks with cuisine from around the world. There are mouthwatering dessert options too! The party won’t be thriving til the food truck is arriving!

Tacos Gomez

After a night of dancing and maybe a few cocktails, wedding guests will dive in to authentic Mexican favorites like tacos, tortas and alambres.

Carpe Donut

Carpe Diem should be the theme of any big party, and seizing a donut or three from the Carpe Donut food truck is even better. Made from organic flour, apple cider and spices, and they’re the perfect late night snack or a stand-alone dessert. Everyone loves donuts. Seriously.


Clean, whole foods served up hot is Farmacy’s specialty. Mexican-inspired menu options range from super naan taco to the vegan burrito and tres hongo quesadilla with black beans, cheese, nutritional yeast and criminal mushrooms.

Sliced.cake Bar

Charlottesville is awash with talented cake makers, but not all of them can roll up to your party with an array of gorgeous cakes from which your guests can choose. Cake flights include flavors like strawberry, lemon, carrot and coconut, and you can also order up cake pops and buttercream shots. Let’s get this party started!

Blue Ridge Pizza Co.

The owners describe it as “traveling wood-fired goodness,” and who can argue with that? The Blue Ridge Pizza Co. food truck pulls up loaded down with slices of heaven. Menu options the Random Row, a white base with manchego, maitake mushrooms, radicchio, parsley and a truffle honey drizzle or the Bleu Bird, a hot sauce base, mozzarella, red onion, pulled chicken and blew cheese crumbles.
