The Good Truck is not really a truck at all, but a 7×17 V-nose trailer with a kitchen inside. For the last three summers this little outfit has been satiating Ithaca area customers with a new version of hot truck fare. The Good Truck cuisine has been given many designations, from gourmet hot truck, and Ithaca-Mex,to locavore-fusion. Some just call it The Taco Truck. What ever the classification, when you look at our menu you see that it is locally driven, seasonal food with definite Mexican flare.
Established by friends Mandy Beem-Miller + Lily Aceto in the fall of 2010, the vision was for The Good Truck was simple; a fast food setting with a slow food attitude. After years of working in various cooking, farming, & restaurant gigs the world around, the two came together, back home in the Ithaca area, to create a local foods driven taco wagon. Inspired by many of their previous jobs, collective love for enjoying a good meal, and the bounty of Finger Lakes growers and producers, The Good Truck was born. Knowing that fresh, seasonal food just tastes better is part of the equation, so is the fact that eating local benefits the community, the body, and the planet. So just about everything The Good Truck serves up is homemade, from scratch, using the freshest, localist, most seasonal ingredients, no malarkey.
The Good Truck runs from May through September in the greater Ithaca area. Check our events calendar for upcoming dates (and check back often as we're always adding more!) and reach out to us for catering inquiries firstname.lastname@example.org.
