Food Truck Wars- Inaugural “Battle at the Beach” (Daytona Beach)
* Food Truck Wars- Inaugural “Battle at the Beach.”
Mrs. Jeff Eats’ cousin Louis and his wife Marla live close by- this “one.”
This coming Friday, Jeff Eats is gonna gas up the car- make the drive and “he” and Mrs. Jeff Eats are going to spend Friday and Saturday with “her” relatives…
Our plans include- catching Food Truck Wars- Inaugural “Battle at the Beach” on Saturday (11/18/17)!
By the way, if you just happen to be at the event- look for the “white hat” pictured above- cousin Louis seemingly wears that hat all the time since moving to Daytona Beach from Atlantic Beach, New York some 29 years ago- and if you spot it, Jeff Eats will probably be right in the area- to say hi!

Foodies have a chance to vote on cuisines from Latin America, British, Caribbean, Gourmet Desserts and everything in between.
Celebrity Chef Judges, spear headed by Chef Jim Whaples, President Emeritus of the Florida Restaurant & Lodging Association will be on hand to judge Casual Cuisine and Delectable Dessert, while the people will judge the prestigious People’s Choice Award.
Local non-profit organizations work alongside the shows promoters to raise money in support of local charities.
The event includes Celebrity Judges, battle of the bellys, live music, kids area and more.
Food costs generally run from $3 to $18. Most entrees run $6 to $8.
The phenomenon of Gourmet Food Truck rivalry (all in the name of good fun, of course) has been a Huge Hit. At the inaugural event in March 2012 an estimated 30,000 people turned up.
In addition to bringing communities together through this amazing battle of food trucks, food truck owners and foodies have donated over $13,000 to various communities, which have hosted the events.
“Food Truck Wars has been an amazing experience” said Liz Rivera Otts, President of Food Truck Crazy, Inc “and it can only get bigger and better”.
