Summer is made for sun-kissed skin, sandy feet and hands full of top-notch food truck fare. The Long Beach Shoregasboard is back this season with more than 10 dining wagons. Hungry beachgoers can find everything from hand-crafted tacos and seafood to smoothies. Between beautiful water views and gourmet goodies, it’s hard to find better weekend plans. (Pro Tip: Bring cash.)

This food truck catches people’s attention because of its bright orange color and wins their stomachs over with lauded tacos. All of the tacos have rave reviews, but the chorizo and shrimp are the unanimous fan favorites. To top it off, the menu features a spicy avocado sauce that adds the perfect blaze to this zesty summer cuisine. Due to its overwhelming popularity, Taco Tuesdays opened an actual restaurant on the Nautical Mile in Freeport this year.

This food truck satisfies sweet cravings with a healthy twist. Between toppings like fresh fruit, granola, nuts, bee pollen and coconut, NY Acai is the go-to spot for health-conscious sunbathers looking to cool off without the calorie bomb.
Lido Kosher Deli
Food Truck Market wouldn’t be complete without a deli. Lido Kosher Deli, permanently located a few miles down on Park Ave, brings favorite items from its menu to the summer pop-up food truck. Hot dogs, knishes and wings satisfy traditional deli cravings, but the signature roast beef sandwich is built to fill even the heartiest appetites.
Corazon de Cuba
Originally established as a popular brick and mortar restaurant, Corazon de Cuba put its meals on wheels to bring Latin cuisine to boardwalk bikers and beachside strollers. Any variety of empanada is without a doubt the most popular item on the menu, and who could argue against authentic flavor and habanero corn cream for dipping?
This lunch wagon is a seafood and burger paradise. Guests recommend the crab cake burger or the new Up the River Burger, a tasty blend of cayenne and salmon. Poseidon’s Kitchen also features slow cooked Korean pulled pork tacos, because nothing beats food truck tacos in the summer.
Shoregasboard is located at Riverside and the boardwalk in Long Beach. For a full list of the concessions available at Long Beach this summer, check out this map.
