“Dude, where’s my food truck?” Before Ashton Kutcher was Steve Jobs, he was a stoner who couldn’t remember where he parked. And before the City of Las Vegas rolled out the food truck component of its free iPhone app August 15, we didn’t know which trucks were serving and where. We were lost. And hungry.

The city recently launched a six-month pilot program giving 16 participating food trucks dedicated parking spots and serving times at three Downtown locations, 100 Bonneville Avenue (near the Bonneville Transportation Center), 1 Lewis Avenue (behind City Hall) and South Third Street in front of the Regional Justice Center. Trucks like Melteez, Coast 2 Coast, Wa Da Pho and the Wicked Wiener are participating on weekdays, and the app, created by Code for America Fellow Lou Huang, provides real-time info on where the trucks are parked, as well as a schedule of upcoming shifts. The information is also available at lasvegasnevada.gov/foodtruck and on Twitter under the hashtag #dtlvfoodtrucks.

Lost and hungry no more.
