Menlo Park diners will have 10 new choices for eating out tonight (Feb. 19), as Off the Grid holds its first food truck event at the Caltrain station.
The expected vendors are El Sur (Argentine-style empanadas); Me So Hungry (sliders, burgers, fries); Gold Rush Eatery (burgers, barbecue); Sam's ChowderMobile (seafood); The Chairman Truck (Taiwanese baos); The Boneyard (barbecue); Hiyaaa (Asian-fusion sandwiches); The Waffle Roost (chicken and waffles with Southern-style sides); Blendid (organic milkshakes); and Kara's Cupcakes.
The event runs from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Caltrain parking lot near the intersection of Merrill Street and Ravenswood Avenue. Signs will ban parking within that section of the lot from 3:30 to 10 p.m. on Wednesdays.
Off the Grid plans to host the food trucks every Wednesday night, with live music, chairs and a portable toilet provided.
