Popular food trucks in Kennebunkport, ME

Although there are dozens of food trucks around town to catch lobster rolls or hot dogs, we chose three that many of the town’s residents are talking about. We’ll give you a little background, where they typically set up, and what their specialty is.

Texas Grace Kitchen food truck

Owned and operated by David Angenend, he decided to open the food truck to bring a taste of Texas to the Maine area. Some of the most popular food at the Texas Grace Kitchen is the Texas Style which has brisket, carnitas or chicken, coleslaw, or potato salad with barbeque sauce.

Saturday, 17 July, they’ll be at Yankee RV Park from 3:30 pm until they sell out. Watch their Instagram page for special events.

The Taco has brisket, carnitas, or chicken in an 8-inch flour tortilla with slaw, TGK salsa, house-pickled red onion, lime crema, and green onion. Plenty of sides are available to include slaw, tarragon potato salad, and tater tots. The meat is grilled or smoked, adding a unique experience to the truck. What’s more, you can buy smoked brisket by the pound.

The Texas Grace Kitchen is usually located at 45 Portland Road unless they are at an event. Call (512) 699-5687 to find out where they’ll be for the day. Their typical hours of operation are Wednesday to Saturday from 11:00 am to 3 pm, unless they sell out, but they're closed Sunday through Tuesday.

In fact, the food truck is a bright red trolley car, but the food is traditional Maine seafood rolls and other fast food like burgers, hot dogs, grilled cheese, hand-cut French fries, which are delicious. Some people say Uncle Benny has the best fish and seafood tacos in Maine. We agree.

Benny’s is usually located at 77 Western Avenue at the Hillcrest Driving Range. It is open every day but Monday from 7 am to 3 pm. Call (207) 590-4909 to order ahead and have it ready when you get there.
