It started as a pilot program and is turning into a mainstay in Davenport this year.

In my limited travels in the U.S., one of the things I noticed they had that the Quad Cities didn't? Food trucks. Organic food, BBQ foods, Thai food, etc... You name it, there always seemed to be a wide variety of food trucks in other places but here.  Until now.

Last October, a pilot program for food trucks started in downtown Davenport and many of the Quad Cities favorites were in truck-form. This also provided opportunities for other, unique food vendors. One of the newest food creations was the 'grilled cheese' food truck that makes you melt with every bite of scrumptious melted cheesy goodness.

According to, the new rules for Davenport food trucks are,

"Food trucks can operate in two designated mobile food zones downtown — the Riverfront and Bechtel Park L. The Riverfront Zone is operational Monday through Thursday from 6 a.m. until midnight, and the Bechtel L is open on Tuesday and Thursday from 3 p.m. until 11 p.m.

Food truck vendors need another $550 permit if they want to operate on public property within the designated zones.

Food trucks can also operate on private property."
