TALLAHASSEE, FL -- Hope you're hungry, October 11th is National Food Truck Day!

Food trucks have become a staple part of the culinary scene in most cities, dishing out meals that rival even the most highly rated restaurants.

One unknown benefit of food trucks, when Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, food trucks were "invaluable" for feeding the clean-up crews and construction workers who couldn't leave their sites to dine out at the few reopened restaurants.

The crew took a look at popular food trucks across the country.

In Atlanta, GA, King of Pops peddles delicious Latin American-style frozen popsicles ranging from crazy seasonal flavors live pear-vanilla and caramel apple to year-round ones like chocolate-sea salt, Arnold Palmer, and cereal milk.

In Chicago, Beavers Coffee and Donuts is bursting with great coffee, milkshakes, and donuts loaded with toppings, like the turtle's chocolate and caramel sauces, plus pecans or the s'mores that's covered in chocolate and marshmallow sauces with graham cracker crumbles.

In Philidephia, Mac Mart Truck dishing out the American comfort food classics, you can grab bowls of mac & cheese with add-ins like BBQ chicken, cornbread crumbles, philly cheesesteak, and fried onions.
