The Food Network’s Great Food Truck Race invaded Lake Havasu City Saturday with seven of the nation’s best food trucks, and Havasuvians weren’t complaining.
“This is awesome,” said Brian Stankowitz, as he shared a Globally Delicious Burgers’ hamburger with his daughter. “I’ve been watching this show for so long. When I heard this show was here I said, ‘O my God.’”
Stankowitz, who is a local Navy recruiter, said, “It’s an amazing, pretty-good burger. This one is phenomenal.”
Helen White, who traveled all the way from Birmingham Ala. for the Bassmasters Elite competition, was pleasantly surprised to find some familiar food at the Postcards food cart, which was a South American—soul food hybrid.
“We ate at Postcards and it was cool to get a taste of home out here, and it was delicious,” White said about the chicken, mac ‘n’ cheese, and greens wrap. “It was also really rad to see it was a family business, and see the daughter calling back to her father in the kitchen.”
White also was able to tell the cameras what she thought of the food, and it was a dream come true.
“I was trying really hard to get on TV because it was on my bucket list,” White said. Only time will tell if White gets a spot on cable television.
April Sugg, of Lake Havasu City, had the opportunity to eat the last bite of her Postcards wrap for the cameras, and had a lot of fun as was evident by her ruckus laughter in regards to the experience.
The Great Food Truck Race will be in Lake Havasu City again Sunday at locations all over town. To find out where the food trucks will be look for the #GreatFoodTruckRace on twitter.
