Amy's Truck Offers Healthy Meals on Wheels

Amy's Truck Offers Healthy Meals on Wheels

We’ve been hearing about a food truck coming from the owners of Amy’s Place for a couple months now, but it wasn’t until last Thursday that Amy’s Truck made it’s long awaited debut in Allentown. Before even serving a single item, Amy’s Truck has gained a following of over 1,500 on their facebook page. In the parking lot of El Buen Amigo, Alli and I waited in an impressive line for about 20 minutes to place our order. Luckily we live within a 1 minute walk from where the truck was parked, so we were able to bring the food back and take some pictures before it got cold.
