Buckhead Food Trucks
Midtown may have the city’s largest food truck park, but our neighborhood isn’t far behind. Thanks to the city of Brookhaven and Fork in the Road (a food truck co-op), a weekly food truck extravaganza dubbed Brookhaven Food Truck Nights happens every Wednesday night from May through October in Blackburn Park. Over a dozen trucks (Happy Belly, Philly Connection, Viet-Nomie’s Gourmet Food Truck & Café, and SnoBayou Handcrafted SnoBalls, to name a few) gather from 5 to 9 p.m. alongside live entertainment and a green just begging for families to come picnic. (Tip: Bring your own lawn chairs—there’s limited seating.) Wednesday nights aren’t the only time you can find food trucks near Buckhead. Yumbii, Tex’s Tacos and Bollywood Zing, among others, make regular stops in town, including the intersection of Piedmont and Lenox roads. Check their social media accounts for the most up-to-date schedules.

The Disco Kroger shopping center recently welcomed newcomer Chow Bing—the second location of owner and Fujian (China) native Gary Lin’s fast-casual Asian concept. Expect MSG-free dishes chockfull of local veggies, wholesome rice and humanely raised meats, like calamari salad, mouth-numbing chicken wings (made with Szechuan peppercorns) and build-your-own rice/noodle platters.
