Mobile Eats

Seek out our favorite food trucks in Colorado.

Food trucks serve the needs of outdoor go-getters by providing grub that’s quick, cheap and tasty, but sometimes they can be unreliable and overly greasy. These three Colorado standouts serve far more than standard fried fare year-round. Just check their Facebook pages for exact locations and hours before you go. 

Melt

With the recent addition of Belgian waffles to its repertoire of gooey sandwiches and saucy pastas, Leadville’s Melt is a rare all-day, year-round food truck. Its picnic tables fill daily from 2 to 4 p.m., when locals score 15 percent off, and on race days with athletes craving carbs. facebook.com/MELTbyPeakPasta/

99 Thai Food

This roving outpost in Montrose—just 13 miles from Black Canyon of the Gunnison—serves platefuls of noodles and curries for just $7. It’s open daily from 11 a.m. until they sell out, except in January and February when the owner takes an annual trip to Thailand—that’s legit.

QuickE’s Tacos

Many food trucks shutter when the temps drop, but QuickE’s whips out piping-hot tacos for breakfast and lunch year-round in Tabernash, one of the coldest town in America. Get two tacos—including healthy options like salmon avocado with spinach—plus a side for $12. facebook.com/QuickEZ/
