2017 Food Truck Showdown: Photos and Results!

Holy moly! What an event! Seventeen food trucks, plus other vendors, and some giant inflatables out at the Ag Center. Produced by Carey Harnash, this event was a smash hit success, and a really good time!!! I was a judge along with WLOS weekend newsman, Evan Donovan, and Chef Josh Weeks from CORNER KITCHEN. We tasted 16 samples (Acropolis ran out of pizza) and picked a winner from among them all! Congrats to LI’L MOJO who won the judges’ hearts, minds, and stomachs with their chicken tender taco and watermelon salad! It was goooooood!!! Runners up with the judges were GYPSY QUEEN CUISINE and APPALCHIAN CHIC. The VIP Tasters’ Choice was awarded to APPALACHIAN SMOKE, and People’s Choice went to ROOT DOWN FOOD TRUCK. Good times, great food, this was a fantastic event. Thanks, Carey and crew!
