The side of a truck may not typically be your go-to destination for delicious food, but Utah Valley’s food truck owners are throwing convention out the window and using said window to serve up food to go.

The mobile food industry is growing like crazy nationwide, and Utah Valley foodies and restaurateurs are hopping on the bandwagon — or van-wagon, if you will — and bringing new meaning to the term “meals on wheels.” Hit the brakes and try one of these local favorites next time they’re in your neighborhood:

1. Waffle Love

If you love waffles, you’ll likely love Waffle Love. Order a delicious, warm liege waffle ($3.50) and top it with your choice of raspberries ($2), strawberries ($1.50), Amano chocolate sauce ($1), crème fraiche ($1) and more. Find the truck’s location online or follow it on Facebook.

2. Fiore

Wood-fired pizza is the specialty at this Utah Valley food truck. Handmade Italian pizzas made with fresh local ingredients are prepared on-site (or on-truck, in this case) and baked in the Neopolitan wood-fired brick oven. Favorites include the Sausage and Pepper Pizza, Sweet ’n Spicy Pork Pizza, and Sweet Corn and Bacon Pizza. Follow @fiorepizza on Instagram or Twitter, and follow Fiore wood Fired Pizza on Facebook for locations.

3. Sweeto Burrito

Bring on the burritos at Sweeto Burrito, where you can get a featherweight ($5) or heavyweight ($9) burrito to match your appetite. The signature Sweeto Burrito is filled with shredded pork, lime rice, black beans, pepper jack cheese and special sauce. Or, try a more adventurous option, such as the All American, a cheeseburger burrito stuffed with bacon, french fries, fry sauce and American cheese. There are smaller kid-sized options, too. Follow them on Facebook.

4. Marley’s Gourmet Sliders

Bigger-than-bite-sized sliders and crispy shoestring fries are the specialties at Marley’s Gourmet Sliders. The restaurant has two retail locations in Utah Valley — one in the Riverwoods in Provo, the other at Timp Harley in Lindon —but now you can get your slider fix from the back of a sleek, silver, converted trailer. Follow @marleysliders on Instagram, @marleysutah on Twitter, or  on Facebook.
