Best Carnie Food

Off the Grid

Step right up to try a variety of carnie food every week all over the city from this parade of food trucks. With 15 locations around the bay and often accompanied by live music and swelling crowds, Off the Grid is a real cuisine circus from Vietnamese and Thai to fast-food Indian to good ole' American delicatessens. All the trucks — or should we say booths — bring the community together through food. Most of the vendors accept plastic payment, but you should come with cash to tip the local talent. Beware of Bacon Bacon if you're planning to ride the Ferris wheel, and don't feed the elephant anything from Peter's Kettle Corn truck.
