If You’re Planning a Summer Party, These Local Food Trucks Are a Must

Summer is certainly the time for parties, whether to be for graduations, birthdays or just a good old fashioned summer get-together. However, it’s not easy to feed all of those people. These days, though, you can forego the catering and instead, book one of our local food trucks.

Around the Upper West Side, we have lots of options for food trucks so you can support a local business while also keeping all of your party guests happy. Check out some of these trucks and their tasty eclectic fare!

The Casbah, located at 160 W 66th St, New York which is a seven minute drive from your Sagamore apartment, is a Halal truck serving fresh Middle Eastern budget snacks from falafels to gyros and shish kebabs.

If you love Halal food, then this is the truck to book for a meal that all of your guests are sure to be talking about for weeks to come! Plus, it’s healthy, high-quality meat so you can enjoy it with a clean conscience.

Tony Dragon’s Grille, located at Madison Ave & E 62nd St, New York which is a 12 minute drive from your Sagamore apartment, started off as a small stainless-steel push-wagon: the platform from which Antonio would begin selling hot dogs and pretzels and eventually led to what has become an institution of fine gourmet Greek/Mediterranean food.

From common hot dog pusher to pioneer street-burger flipper to artisan chicken-breast griller, Tony’s commitment to continually reinventing himself quickly gained him the attention of some of New York’s most prominent media outlets, including The New York Times and New York Post, as well as a slew of loyal customers.
