Two Campus Food Trucks Receive National Attention

UH Dining Introduces Late Night Food Truck Option for Students

Houston, Oct. 17, 2014 — The Daily Meal has listed two campus favorites on their list of the top food trucks in America. Eatsie Boys is 48th on the list and Coreanos is 49th.

Eatsie Boys was recently added to the campus food truck program. Dishes that received accolades from the Daily Meal were the Pork Snuggie, Sabotage and Frank the Pretzel.

Coreanos is one of the original food trucks on campus. Its fusion of "Mexican cuisine with Korean in-between" is what gained it praise.

Eatsie Boys and Coreanos competed against more than 450 food trucks from 40 cities. According to the Daily Meal, food trucks were ranked based on "Twitter followers, Yelp reviews and Yelp stars into a weighted algorithm, rounded out by an originality score that took into account menu innovation, overall concept and geography."
