When you are hunting for mobile Food Trucks in Venice, Florida, it can take some hunting. Let’s check out all the cool trucks that made it past all these crazy regulations to bring us some incredible food! (Hint: You probably should pin this, or at least bookmark this.)
Why You Should Check Out The Food Trucks in Venice
What is a food truck? Should I be worried about the safety of eating out of one? A food truck is essentially a restaurant on wheels. They are easily spotted by their logo, menu and usually where they park for the day. Unlike the roach coaches of old, these food trucks are held to exceptionally high health and safety measures and are subjected to inspections from the health department. Food trucks are dominating our hearts and our stomachs as they come out with incredible flavors and foods to rival the top restaurants in our area.
While we do have a large number of restaurants that are offering takeout, delivery and curbside carryout, there is another Foodie scene in town! Our local food truck owners are resilient and more determined than ever to carve out their success in our little slice of paradise. From knock your socks off pizza to locally made sausages, authentic lobster rolls to killer BBQ, these food trucks are serving up food that leaves you craving another bite.
What Food Trucks Are Located Near Venice?
Dog Friendly Gourmet Hot Dogs
Brent was born and raised in Venice and he loves nothing more than feeding the locals. Dog Friendly Gourmet Hot Dogs is so much more than a hot dog cart. These gourmet hot dogs are amazing, but for private events, he can also use his extensive catering experience to bring more to the table! His schedule constantly changes, so follow him on Facebook to see where he’ll pop up next! Our favorites are the NYC (kraut, onions, spicy mustard), the Cincinnati (chili, onion, mustard and beer cheez) and of course the classic Chicago (pickled jalapeno, neon relish, pickle, onions, tomatoes, mustard and celery salt on a poppyseed roll). You’ll want to try them all! (Ask about his Taste The Cart specials or his Dog Father!) Thursday nights, he also offers late night delivery in Venice from 10pm – 1am.
Parise Coffee will be at their home location, 200 E. Base Ave at the Venice Mercato, On The Island, every Thursday- Friday and Saturday! 10 am-3 pm. You can enjoy all their delectable treats inside their headquarters or outside in the lovely weather while you indulge in their irresistible Cornettis (We love the Cornetti with Proscuitto, Brie and Apricot Preserves). And if you’re looking for a unique treat, don’t forget to try their mouthwatering Affogato! See it in the image above, the Cannoli Affogato has a wonderful vanilla ice cream with a bold espresso poured over and topped with scrumptious cannoli cream, chocolate chips, a cannoli shell chip and a cherry on top! Plus, Parise Coffee’s outdoor swing is the perfect place to relax and unwind with friends while you sip on your favorite beverage and listen to some chill tunes. So come on down and join the fun!
Sausage Express serves up that grilled comfort food at an affordable price. Their sausage sandwiches are what they are most known for, but don’t let the name fool you. The menu is full of delicious choices! They recently opened a brick and mortar location called Local Spot 941 in the ark plaza, serving up their famous Reuben sandwiches along with other daily specials for only $10. Because of this, they are currently only opening on Sundays and Mondays located at O’Reilly’s Auto Parts in Venice from 11-2.

The clam chowder is creamy and delicious and if you ask nicely, they’ll let you sample it before getting a whole bowl (which you will.)
Grace’s Taste of Poland
Our Polish friends absolutely love this food truck. While they were mainly in Charlotte county for a while, they have been popping up in Venice on occassion! When we discovered them, we just had to go and try as much as possible. The goulash is like the stew your mom made in the winter when everything was too cold and that warm bowl at dinner was every happy feeling you could have. I have to rave about the Mega Kielbasa Sub though, it’s MASSIVE. The saurkraut is spot on, perfect and the diced bell peppers finish it off nicely. We loved the pierogies, the kielbasa on a stick and the potato pancake too! Bring your wallet and prepare to buy it all, you won’t be sorry.
