The 13 Wildest, Weirdest Food Vehicles on America’s Roads

We recently put together a list of the 101 best food trucks in America for 2017, but what about interesting food vehicles in general? America’s roads have some crazy cars, trucks, and motorcycles that are spiffed out to look like all sorts of things — there are upside-down school buses, cars with hot tubs, and even some vehicles that resemble animals or food items.

One man went so far as to transform his Harley-Davidson motorcycle into a cheeseburger on wheels. The insane (and awesome) motorcycle has a loaded tray table between the handle bars and ketchup bottles as shock covers, with hot cheese that seems to be melting over the front wheel. Another crazy food vehicle? The Space Shuttle Cafe, which serves food from a realistic looking NASA space shuttle on wheels. Check out the rest of our list for more of the wildest and weirdest food vehicles on America’s roads.

Big Banana Car

Something about this car makes us so happy. It’s not even intended to promote any company; builder Steve Braithwaite drives the converted pickup truck (and incredibly realistic-looking giant banana) around the world for charity.

Boston Lobster Feast Car

Built to promote an Orlando seafood buffet restaurant called Boston Lobster Feast, this car actually looks like it’s being attacked by a giant lobster. We imagine it must be a little distracting for the driver.

Del Popolo

Boasting a full-size wood-burning pizza oven, this food truck from the former pizzaiolo of the acclaimed Flour + Water in San Francisco is one of the first of its kind, and is unlike any other truck on the streets. Look at how cool that is!

Goldfish Truck

If Goldfish is “the snack that smiles back,” this would be the car that smiles back. The biggest question is: How was this vehicle even designed?

Hamburger Harley

Lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions… and ketchup-bottle shock covers? This cheeseburger-shaped motorcycle was painted by artist Chris Cruz and is owned by Harry “Hamburger Harry” Sperl, who just might ride it to your next party if you book the “Burger Bike.”

Hershey’s Kissmobile

Is this not the most adorable car you’ve ever seen? Our dream is to take a ride inside this sweet, giant Hershey's Kiss.

Who wouldn’t like to take a ride inside a giant peanut, especially with Mr. Peanut himself riding shotgun?

Roving Mammoth

Perhaps the most intriguing dining option available at the resort at the Mammoth Mountain ski resort in California is the Roving Mammoth, a food truck crafted atop a snowcat that can tackle the unforgiving terrain of the mountain to deliver breakfast and lunch burritos. Hey, when you gotta have a burrito, you gotta have a burrito!

Space Shuttle Café

If you see a spaceship driving around Times Square, you haven’t lost your mind. This food truck is a café on wheels that stops at various locations in New Jersey, New York City, and Long Island and serves up food that is out of this world.


The famous Weinermobile is a massive Oscar Mayer hot dog, on a bun, on wheels. They don’t serve any food, but you might be one of the lucky few to catch a ride in this truck if you see it drive by.

Westport Flea Market Truck

This truck, owned by the Westport Flea Market Bar and Grill in Kansas City, actually looks good enough to eat! The truck is a giant burger with all the classic toppings, which is fitting since outlets such as The Pitch, Zomato, and The Food Network named Westport Flea Market’s burgers the best in Kansas City.
