Food Truck Love: Gennarinos

Many of you might not be aware, but there is a food trunk invasion taking place in DFW.  There are trucks for any and everything you could possibly imagine!  I have been avidly stalking food trucks on Twitter, and have taken to following Big D Food Trucks blog that gives me up to date info on where trucks are rolling.  I was super excited when trolling Big D's blog to see a food truck near 635 /MacArthur one day last week, and the husband and I headed over.  While it was a little hard to find the truck (it said Walgreens parking lot and was actually in a bank lot)  we saw the cutest little food truck and walked on over.  When we walked up, there was a man talking with a customer in the neatest Italian accent I have ever heard.  We were handed menus from the men working in the truck, and made a couple of selections.  We tried the lasagna, spaghetti pizza, timbolo rosso (fried spaghetti and meatballs), and the nutella zeppalones, little Italian donuts.  We also had two raspberry Italian sodas, topped with whipped cream.  We really liked that they had two fold down bistro tables, so we could stop and eat our food right off the truck.  All the food was fantastic, and very affordably priced.  The proprietors of the truck were fun to chat with, and we had a great first food truck experience!  We will definitely be hunting them down again soon!  See below for some pictures of our meal, and check Gennarinos out on Facebook!
