One of the reasons why Houston is considered foodie heaven is because the Bayou City has one of the most dynamic food truck scenes in the country. Here are five of the best. And what’s even cooler—they’re Black-owned.

Hibachi Bros is Houston’s first Black-owned authentic Japanese Styled Hibachi Food Truck. And not only is their food superb, but apparently, “they love the kids.” They annually host a “Burritos for Backpacks” supply drive to help HISD students in need get ready for the new school year. Hibachi Bros offer a free chicken “Bro-Rito,” the company’s signature dish, in exchange for a donation of a new backpack for an HISD student in need.

The vegans are taking over, and proving that eating healthy doesn’t have to mean giving up taste. Because this food truck right here is serious about bringing the flavor. Keep turning up your nose on these vegan spots if you want to, but y’all goin’ learn.

If you tried the BBQ from this already iconic and legendary food truck without any prior knowledge of how they roll, you would have no way of knowing they are an all-vegan spot. And when I say their food is insanely good… Bruh!

The founder and CEO of Suzie’s Traditional Fusion Cuisine, Ashanti Laurencin, has been in the food and beverage industry for over 22 years. As a young girl, she observed her grandparents’ entrepreneurship with their business venture in Guyana (South America). Their example fueled Laurencin’s passion to help serve her community by literally serving her community with some of the best eats in the country. Yeah, I said it. And the frequent-eater miles that I’ve piled up at Suzie’s lets you know I’ve literally put my money where my mouth is. When Laurencin moved to H-Town a little over a decade ago, she noticed a lack of diversity in the Houston food industry (i.e., not many Caribbean diaspora food options). Suzie’s Fusion Cuisine was born to fill that void. And fill it (and many stomachs) they have.

This is one of those, “you’ve got to experience it to believe it” type spots. This food truck might as well have been named Cheese Heaven, because that’s exactly what it is. Just making your way through the insane menu is an experience in its own right. They’ve got something for everyone.
