Backbone is stationed for its second year at Nicolet Beach in Peninsula State Park. This summer it will be joined by Golden Hour, a smoothie shop with drinks like the Daydream: banana, sea salt, almond butter, cinnamon, vanilla, honey and homemade hemp milk.
Food trucks are a fun way to grab a quick lunch, try a new dish, or avoid packing the cooler on a trip to the beach. Brimming with variety, specialties, and branded items, the Peninsula’s food truck scene will take more than a day to explore — and more than a stomach. So grab your friends, build an appetite and start planning your visit.
Sturgeon Bay: just across the bridge
Sturgeon Bay, the city tied for the top of the food truck race, offers Papa B’s Food Truck, 30 N. 1st Ave., an option that serves both breakfast and lunch. His menu features gyros, hot dogs, wraps and his signature roast taco. Also discover sides, hash browns and more.
Nearby, Goyitto’s Taco Truck, 214 Michigan St., serves street food in Tijuana. From Mexican street corn to burritos and tacos, the menu is full of fun, easy-to-grab dishes. From personal experience, you can’t go wrong with Vampiro’s taco.
In the same space, you can sometimes find Savor BBQ Co., a food truck filled with smoked meats, classic barbecue sliders, and a rotating specialty dish that can range from loaded barbecue nachos to a three-meat sandwich.
“People should try the beef brisket,” owner Corey Brydon said. “This is the best meal you’ll have in Door County.”
Baileys Harbour: More choices than a day trip can hold
Savor BBQ, 8048 Hwy 57, has a sister truck in Baileys Harbor, the other city with the most abundant mobile food.
The restaurant building Chives, 8041 Hwy 57, has two food trucks that stand guard outside the restaurant offering its pizzas and chef’s specialties.
Rounding out the town trio is Wally’s Weenie Wagon, 8123 Hwy 57, a truck run by a husband and wife duo. Offering what they describe as their favorite Chicago dishes, they serve nine types of hot dogs, five kinds of fries, and three kebabs and gyros, their most popular item.
“Gyro straight off the spit – it has to be – straight into the pita, no frying or anything like that,” Vartanian said. “I was born in Chicago, so I was raised on that kind of stuff.”
Sister Bay: Bayside BBQ
Great Lakes BBQ Co., 10440 Orchard Dr., offers its award-winning barbecue on the road with sandwiches, burgers, barbecue plates and more. It also serves parfaits: brisket or pork on layered cornbread, baked beans, mac and cheese and coleslaw, topped with house fries. The food truck will also be featured at a few Door County festivals.
Peninsula State Park: Picnic in the Sand
Now in its second year, Backbone Food Truck feeds customers of Nicolet Beach in Peninsula State Park with schnitzel, Beyond Burgers and mouth-watering brats. This season, a smoothie shop, Golden Hour, will join the truck on Sundays.
Egg Harbor: classics and beginners
Jolly Street Pizza will be operational again this year with the same recipes but a new owner. Also at Egg Harbor, Alex Jolicoeur said he doesn’t have a firm opening date yet, but is working to get the operation open as soon as possible.
The newest kid on the block is Kitty’s Coffee, a coffee trailer owned and operated by Faith Moore at Stonehedge Golf Course, 4320 Cty E, and Baileys Harbor Farmer’s Market. Moore serves up all the classic coffee combos as well as his own creations, like his favorite, the Cougar Americano.
“[It’s] named after my good friend Adam Peterson’s cat, Cougar,” Moore said. “She’s super sweet, yet feisty — just like my four-shot, cherry-chocolate Americano.”
Food truck hours and locations are as mobile as their food. The best way to find out where and when your preferred supplier will be serving is to check their website or social media for locations and times.
