Livestrong food truck pileup

It's getting warmer outside, but we're still a few weeks off from an outright angry Texas summer (we hope), so make sure to enjoy one of the many food truck parks around town before that curtain of fire falls. If you need a special reason for the trip, consider Boardwalk on Bulverde's (14732 Bulverde) Kitchens for Cancer event this weekend, with proceeds going to the Lance Armstrong Foundation. Beer will be for sale on site, and over a dozen food trucks are signed up to feed the masses, including Rickshaw Stop, Toastie Buns, Winner Winner Chicken Dinner, and Spice Runner.

Even as San Antonio explodes with innovative rolling kitchens, we're still getting recognized for the old standards. Travel + Leisure magazine recently ranked San Antonio among America's Best Burger Cities for 2012. Clocking in at 18 out of 20, we were outdone by Houston (4) and Austin (13), but the pub's writers made special note of Chris Madrid's and The Lord's Kitchen for their Texas-sized portions. It's certainly not helping the city overcome a reputation as one of the more obese cities, but we couldn't live without an occasional binge at either one of these institutions.
