Food trucks beckon as the hungry, eager to escape the skyways, are happy to venture into the street for a tasty lunchtime treat, making it a warm-weather activity for the most part.

Although we're still bundled against the damp chill of this spring, food truck season is approaching. The Minneapolis Eater website has a list of fresh new options that we can look forward to if, in fact, it ever does warm up.

"Mingling with the veteran trucks are these seven new mobile eateries," the story says. The newbies will serve up everything from grilled cheese to burgers to pizza. They include:

Tru Pizza – launches on June 1, with gluten-free and multi-grain dough options, organically sourced ingredients and fresh salads.

Grill Works Truck – arrives in mid-May. Described as an American-style grill, it will feature burgers with all the fixings and desserts.

Big Brother Almighty BBQ – is ready to roll, with smoked meats, sides like macaroni and cheese and burgers.

Undead Frank's Zombie Bites – owned by Psycho Suzi's, the truck usually parks at the restaurant's North Minneapolis sister pub Donny Dirk's Zombie Den.

O'Cheeze – already rolling, selling gourmet versions of the American classic.

Butcher Salt - on the streets since Feburary, offering sandwiches seasoned with, what else, butcher salt.

WildEarth WoodFired Mobile Pizzza Bakery - launching at the end of May and heading to serve fresh pizza at festivals, farmer's markets, and private events.

Want to know what rolling options are nearby? The hungry have numerous ways to check their best options. MSPFoodTrucks is a blog devoted to finding who's serving where. The Heavy Table website tracks the trucks with a directory to update readers as vendors and locations change. CityPages also offers readers a map with daily updates on the whereabouts of food trucks, trailers and carts.
