Denver’s Best Food Trucks, Vol. 1

King of Wings, Denver

King of Wings is the undisputed king of wings. No, really! They could make their wings like every other place in town, fast, by frying them, but instead, they take the time to coat them in a delicious dry rub,  and then slow-cook them on a grill which sears in fantastic flavor. But what we really appreciate is their constant sauce development, they are always trying out new flavors like Bourbon, Bourbon Buffalo, Spicy Thai and then there’s always a tangy and savory sauce of the week.  And if that leaves you wanting more, they’ve also got Parm Fries, Onion Rings & white meat Chicken Tenders as well! Find them at your favorite brewery or event by checking their schedule, here.

Basta pizza, Denver

They are new on the food truck scene but their reputation is legendary. Meet Ash Moki, from Kelly Whitaker and Cody Taft, the chef/owner and chef of  Basta (respectively), which was voted Ten Top restaurant in Denver/Boulder by 5280 Magazine. Kelly learned how to make pizza in Italy, and his dough is created from a fifty-year-old starter from Naples. He combines the dough with the freshest, and most simple, ingredients, sourced from local farmers and vendors, with his own handmade mozzarella. Ash Moki can be booked for events, weddings and you just might find them popping up around Denver, too. Find their next location, here.

If you love traditional Kansas City BBQ, you’re gonna love Smokestack 70. What To Get: According to Denver Foodie, @milehighandhungry, it’s all about the KC Classic (pictured), applewood smoked pork and  creamy cole slaw on a toasted bun. along with a side of cheesy corn bake; and the Burnt Ends, KC-stye, cubed and sauced. You’ll find them popping up at many locations, including Denver’s best breweries. Check out Smoke Stack 70’s calendar, here.

Pavy's Food Truck Bacon & Cheddar Tots, Denver

Bacon & Cheddar Tots by Pavy’s Food Truck are here to rock your world.

Bacon and Cheddar Tots. Need we say more? Okay, we will because the sandwiches at Pavy’s Food Truck are just as stellar as their tots. Fans rave about “The Steak,” prime cuts of steak  piled atop a fresh roll that has been spread with creamy horseradish sauce, as well as the “The Pork Tenderloin,” an Asian-inspired sandwich that features fried-to-order pork tenderloin cutlets, pickled cucumbers, roasted red peppers, arugula, and a tangy/spicy mustard sauce. No wonder fans have referred to it as “tender on the inside, crisp on the outside,” with “amazing flavor.”

Great news about Mile High Thai, not only is their food fabulous, but you don’t have to chase their truck around in cold Colorado weather, because they’re located right at Finn’s Manor, in RiNo – an epic place in its own right.  We’ll  can’t remember which Yelp review motivated us to get  there first, this one: “Drunken Noodles. Order them with chicken. Wait three to five minutes. Eat. Spend the rest of your life looking for that food truck again.” Or this one:  “Oh my god.
Best pad Thai I’ve ever had. I can’t even finish typing this because I need to lick the box it came in.” All we can say is these peeps were right about this fresh, tasty and perfectly seasoned Thai food.
