Whistle Stop Food Truck Rodeo: Trains and Trucks

Categories: Mobile Meals

It was no surprise that the Dolci Peccati gelato truck was the busiest spot at the Gold Coast Railroad Museum this Saturday. The Whistle Stop Food Truck Rodeo introduced visitors, most of whom were pint-sized and ice cream crazy, to the delights of mobile meals. Families were picnicking on the grass and benches, enjoying the pleasant weather, awesome exhibitions, and available cuisine.

Located by Zoo Miami, the museum is an impressive venue featuring, among other super cool things, the Ferdinand Magellan presidential railcar and the Silver Crescent passenger car. Visitors can weave their way around trains, old Metrorail cars, through a medical car, and even take a short choo-choo ride. There's a big shaded sand box for the little kids and plenty of room to wander about. The marriage of Gold Coast Railroad Museum and food trucks seems a delightful one for the whole family, who can enjoy a day outside with everything taken care of -- food, bathrooms, parking, history, and shade.

Participating trucks included G & C Catering, Chipstix, Yellow Submarine, The Rolling Stove, Caza Crepes, Jefe's Original, Dolci Peccati, Grill Master Cafe, Miso Hungry, and Funnel Cakes.
