Filming for season two of The Great Food Truck Race with host Tyler Florence is underway, and eight food trucks are slowly making their way across the country. They were in Salt Lake City last weekend, and will be in Denver this weekend. That means the competitors have been spotted by crafty bloggers!
Although the Food Network declined to confirm the list, the fact that these trucks are out there slinging food on camera makes them likely bets. Fully half of the trucks are from California, including San Diego's Devilicious, Irvine's The Lime Truck, and Cafe con Leche from Van Nuys. Here's the full list:
· Hodge Podge, Cleveland, Ohio
· Korilla Barbecue, New York
· Roxy's Grilled Cheese, Boston, Massachusetts
· Chow Truck, Salt Lake City, Utah
· Devilicious Food Truck, San Diego, California
· The Lime Truck, Irvine, California
· Seabirds, Orange County, California
· Cafe con Leche, Van Nuys, California
What no trucks from Austin or Portland, cities with the highest food truck to person ratio in the country?
Also, today came a press release announcing the premiere date: August 14th at 10pm ET/PT. Here it is:
