It’s #FlashbackFriday: The #OCFoodieFest from 2010

Here’s a great Flashback Friday for the food truck fans!

The OC Foodie Fest was held on this day in 2010.

It was the brainchild of Taco Dawg, where he got 50+ food trucks in the parking lot at the Honda Center. Those who were lucky to have scored VIP admission got in 30 minutes before the general public, and was able to get food and get shelter from the blazing sun under a tent.

There were plenty of complaints from general admission fans ranging from there was not enough shade, no water, not worth the admission, unorganized and the line to get food was way way too long… as long as an hour for some truck.

Yup, those were good times… and very much a part of the Southern California Food Truck scene.  Enjoy the snippet of 2010, and be thankful that food truck fans don’t suffer this way anymore.
