The draw of food trucks lies not only in their diverse menus but also in the sense of adventure they bring to the dining experience. With that being said, here are four must try Food Trucks on Long Island.

The Pike describes itself as “The Comfort Food Kitchen”, with their chefs having over 30 years of culinary experience. Although they’re a mobile kitchen, don’t be fooled - they have over 160 square feet to prepare their meals. The Pike uses fresh and local ingredients in their dishes, and guarantees top-notch quality and flavor. Some of Pike’s menu items include their sweet and tangy fall off the bone baby back ribs and their specialty, the fried chicken plate, both served with fries and coleslaw. The fried chicken is coated with a blend of seasonings and then cooked to perfection. For dessert, try their banana or bread pudding. The Pike is typically located off of Montauk Highway in Bridgehampton, although their location is subject to change (check their Facebook for the latest). Their hours are 12 to 6 pm on Friday and Saturdays, and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays. To learn more, click here.
