It’s hard to dislike food trucks; they are restaurants on wheels that sell gourmet food at half the price of a fancy dinner out! Not much is better than that! They also go hand and hand with summer days on the beach, and that is why Beach Eats is a perfect combination. 

Head over to the parking lot at Marina Beach on Thursdays, May 4 through September 28, for delicious water front dinners! Each week a new selection of food trucks sell food from 5 to 9 p.m. Make the night one to remember by bringing chairs or a blanket for a picnic on the sand. You can also grab a table under the covered picnic pavilion, but just remember that those fill up fast!

Next week on Thursday, May 11, there will be five different delectable trucks to choose from! The list is below!


Slammin’ Sliders 

Slammin’ Sliders is the “premiere slider truck in LA serving Wagyu Kobe Beef, handmade Lobster Cakes, Shrimp, Chicken and Pork Sliders as well as a Black Angus Sirloin Philly Cheesesteak.”

They offer an array of options for Carnivores and Vegetarians alike.

India Jones Chow Truck

The creative name might get you to walk over to the truck, but the taste of the food will get you to stay! This Indian food truck specializes in street food, curries and vegan options.

Roll’n Lobster

Owned by a New Englander who decided that the California winters were too good to pass up, this Lobster truck provides some of the most authentic New England seafood that can be found on the West Coast. Fresh, never frozen, Maine Lobster is used to make all of the dishes, giving other East Coast transplants a taste of home.
