Remember when you would get a hot dog or a sandwich from a food truck? Remember some of the nicknames given to food truck vendors? For the first time Friday, NoDo, the neighborhood north of downtown, hosted the Omaha Food Truck Festival.
"I think our food is different enough,” said food truck owner Scott Redd. “We're not afraid of competition, we like healthy competition, we think the more food trucks there are, if they have quality food, it's going to bring more awareness to Omaha with food trucks and street food in general.”
The specialty at the Local Motive food truck was “The Rounder,” a round sandwich filled with meat and cheeses, just one of the unique foods found at the festival at 13th and Cass streets.
The Local Motion truck is like a regular restaurant, hauling its power source with a separate truck and setting up its dining room on the sidewalk. David Burr started the Local Motive to provide quality late night food to those who worked late at night.
