Atlanta is an amazing city for foodies and assholes with Yelp accounts. The food truck scene, in particular, has really taken off as of late. However, with so many people jumping on the bandwagon, there are bound to be a few failures. So without further ado, here are the five Atlanta food trucks we’re sad to see go.
1. Don’t Believe the Tripe
Apparently the demand for Haggis—a traditional Scottish dish made of a sheep’s stomach stuffed with oatmeal and the minced heart, liver and lungs of a sheep—is pretty much what one might expect.
This mobile kosher joint only served burgers made from wild game meat. While the Ostrich Morde-Cayenne Burger was tasty, the decidedly niche market just wasn’t big enough to keep it in business.
3. The Animal Shelter
We have no idea if this vegan food truck was any good. Neither does anyone else.
4. Later Tater
Unlike others on this list, Later Tater actually shattered its earnings predictions. However, this mashed potato truck’s immense popularity also proved to be its downfall as the truck itself was stolen at a gas station on Northside Dr. in the middle of the day.
5. Free Candy
This food truck was technically just a panel van with ‘Free Candy’ spray painted on it. And despite never recording a single transaction, the owner can somehow afford to go on an extended vacation for the next 20 years to life.
