These Jersey City Food Trucks Are Perfect For a Quick Yet Delicious Bite


We get it – summertime is the busiest time! Between running around planning your next trip, shopping for new summer clothes and picking up a gift for that upcoming summer party, it can be hard to find time to grab a bite on the go.

But thanks to the food trucks located near our Beacon apartments, you can enjoy a restaurant-quality dish without ever sitting down at a white-clothed table. Here are some to head to for sandwiches, international eats, healthy meals and more!

Dark Side Of The Moo, located at 52 Bowers St, Jersey City which is 10 minutes from your Beacon apartment, is a decade-old popular food truck known for its specialty burgers made from exotic meats.

At any given time, you will find kangaroo, alligator, yak, bison and many other proteins on their menu for you to try! All of their game meats are pasture-raised on a natural diet – if not entirely grass-fed – with no antibiotics or growth hormones, ever. For those not quite ready to explore the exotic, they have creative burgers and sandwiches, too.

Jerkin Chicken, located at 234 West Side Ave, Jersey City which is 10 minutes from your Beacon apartment, is an established, family-run food truck doling out traditional Jamaican food.

Since 2012, their mission has been to provide high-quality Caribbean food for all those that wish to enjoy a taste of the founders’ island home. Taste your way through their delicious and handcrafted menu, carefully curated with your taste buds in mind. They know that you’ll find yourself on an exciting culinary journey at Jerkin Chicken, and they invite you to come back for more!
