The Fojol Bros, DC’s first food truck, announced on Sunday that they have retired the last of their 3 food trucks due to the aging fleet of 1950′s – 60′s trucks. The Washington City Paper has more info. Also, the Fojol Bros’ Elastic Highways project is on hold, but they are still operating their kitchen in Hyattsville. We are all curious to see what the Fojols’ will surprise us with next!

Just announced: Chick-fil-A food truck adds waffle fries to their menu! When the truck first launched almost two years ago, many were disappointed to learn that the usual menu was not rounded out with waffle fries. According to a couple of tweets this morning, waffle fries are now on the menu – enjoy! They will be serving at Farragut Square today (3/25).
It’s always bittersweet to report when a food truck (or, cart in the case) retires to focus on their brick and mortar shops. I’m guilty of dragging my feet in posting this as a result.
Last Friday was District Taco’s last day running their Arlington-based carts, as reported by ARLNow. The continued success of their brick and mortar business and a focus on opening their new Dupont Circle location contributed to the decision.
With a planned Crystal City retail spot, we will actually be able to enjoy a set of delicious corn tortilla tacos with more frequency and convenience. Congrats to District Taco!
Thanks to David for the original tip.
I just got word about Truckeroo’s dates for this year: 4/11, 5/9, 6/13, 7/11, 8/8, 9/12
For the uninitiated, Truckeroo is DC’s monthly food truck festival that is held monthly during the warmer months of the year. It is held at the DC Fairgrounds, which is directly across from the Navy Yard ballpark metro entrance. There are usually 25 trucks in attendance, and the lineup changes from event to event. Truckeroo typically lasts from 11am – 11pm.
I’ll provide more details as we near the first Truckeroo of 2014!

CapMac has a new operator (Josh) and is currently soft-opening in the District. They aren’t announcing locations just yet because they need time to get in the groove of things. So, if you happen to see CapMac, wish them a warm welcome back! I will start tracking them on the map again once they give me the green light.
