Food trucks show up for Euphoria Traffic Jam

Not long ago, food trucks weren’t allowed to operate in downtown Greenville.

But on Saturday night, they were circled and attracting a crowd for Euphoria’s Traffic Jam on Saturday night.

This was the first year for the event to be included in Greenville’s food, wine and music festival that ran Sept. 26-29.

Greenville City Council acted in June to allow food trucks to operate downtown.

On a cool fall evening, people visited with friends and relaxed on blankets or a few hammocks outside the Old Cigar Warehouse on South Main Street while they listened to Seven Handle Circus, a bluegrass band from Georgia.

Lines formed for brisket sliders, barbecue sundaes (The barbecue, slaw and beans are all in one cup.) and mac and cheese barbecue sandwiches at the Henry’s Smokehouse truck, Henry’s Hog Hauler.

Asada served up mini tacos and tuna baskets, small pastry baskets filled with sautéed tuna.

Thoroughfare dished up meatloaf sandwiches and tater tots topped with goat cheese sauce.

All of the trucks were from Greenville except for 2 Fat 2 Fly, which came from Columbia to serve its stuffed chicken wings and fried okra.

Other trucks at the Traffic Jam were Kona Ice, My Fudd Truck and The Chocolate Moose
