A long line in the rain is the true sign of success for any food truck
Once considered a passing trend, food trucks are now officially parked in the New York City cheap eats scene, particularly during the warmer months. These four-wheelers brighten lunch hours, private events, and weekends at the park with innovative eats served from a tiny kitchen. Here are the 10 best food trucks in NYC.

10. The Eddie's Pizza Truck

You'll find a pizzeria on just about every corner in this city, but bar pies -- so named because they're light enough that you can polish one off and still have room for a beer -- are rarer. This Long Island pizzeria built its reputation on that type of pizza, and it's crossed the bridge to help feed the Manhattan masses, particularly in the Financial District. Offering 10 and 16-inch thin crust pies, the truck also allows fans to vote on a daily pizza special, which is featured once a week.

Grilled cheese gets all -- okay most -- of the attention at this artisanal sandwich operation

9. The Morris Truck

Food trucks purveying fancy grilled cheese are numerous, but Morris' moving dairy factory is the best of the group. Carefully curated sandwiches included ingredients from renowned purveyors like Saxelby Cheesemongers and Hudson Valley Duck Farm; the truck is committed to sourcing from local area farms. Opt for the classic grilled cheese with a touch of sea salt and a cup of tomato bisque.

Cheap and tasty tacos define Tacos Morelos, a late night staple in the outer boroughs

8. Tacos Morelos

This fixture off Bedford Avenue has fed late-night Williamsburg denizens for years, though the somewhat under-the-radar operation expanded its reach when it opened a brick-and-mortar restaurant in the East Village several months ago. Still, the food truck continues to park, and you won't find a better late night steak burrito or breaded chicken torta anywhere. The food is cheap and tasty, and the portions are big enough that you'll have breakfast waiting for you when you wake up the next morning.

Is this a joke? ZERO from Queens?! I mean there's a Wafels and Dinges on 31st St. but that really doesn't count. Not even the SOUVLAKI is from Astoria?! Shameful. Makes me miss Sietsema.
