Best Food Trucks in Medford, Oregon
In the past few years, Medford’s food truck scene has grown exponentially. Every day, community members can visit a different local food truck and discover incredible flavors inspired by various types of cuisine. Read on for information on six of Medford’s most popular trucks, as well as where to find them.
1. CABA Empanadas
CABA Empanadas incorporates unique flavor profiles into a traditional Argentine dish. Their empanadas are handmade, baked fresh everyday, and include organic, locally sourced ingredients. You can choose from traditional options like beef and creamy chicken, or you can try a flavor twist like caprese, bacon and goat cheese, or pumpkin. No matter what, you’ll be thrilled about these empanadas, especially when topped with CABA’s house chimichurri sauce or served with a side of traditional Argentine sweets like alfajores and medialunas.
2. Victory Dogs
For oddly delicious spins on an American classic, visit Victory Dogs. This local legend has curated over 40 different variations of hot dogs. From breakfast-themed dogs to their most popular “Pastrami Dog”, you’re sure to find a concoction that catches your eye and satisfies your taste buds. If you’re not sold yet, check out the press: they’ve been voted the “Best Mobile Hot Dog Vendor” by Mobile-Cuisine, as well as the “Best Hot Dog in Oregon” by 247 Wall St and Travel + Leisure
3. Northwest Pine Apple
Using wholesome, all-natural, organic ingredients, Northwest Pine Apple is a self-proclaimed “feel good food truck.” Here, you can order from a menu of açai bowls, smoothies, avocado toast, and cold-pressed juices — each made with some of Oregon’s local and seasonal produce. While you can find them at farmers markets and food pods around town, you can also make a visit to their recently opened drive-thru at 900 N Riverside Avenue.
4. Peruvian Point
For an authentic taste of Peruvian cuisine, visit Peruvian Point. You can find them across from Asante Hospital (2780 Barnett Road), but they’re also known to travel to various events throughout the summer. Their gyros, falafel, kebabs, and lentil soups are made with farm-to-table ingredients, and their friendly service makes it all the better.
From Korean fried rice to Thai coconut curry, Wokstar serves some of the best Asian-fusion cuisine in the Rogue Valley. Their plates are plentiful and affordable, and their flavors are a satisfying blend of sweet, savory, and spicy. The community raves about Wokstar, as the truck travels to food pods and caters events throughout Southern Oregon.
6. Truffle Pig
If you’re someone who loves to be always trying something new, check out Truffle Pig. Their “craft kitchen” food truck is famous for rotating seasonal menus inspired by locally grown produce and artisanal ingredients. Find them at the grower’s market, or at wineries and events in the valley. We promise you’ll always walk away with a satisfied stomach and a new recipe to rave about.
