A few Juice staffers and I hit up the Fall Food Truck Showdown last Friday at the Pappajohn Sculpture Park. There was beer, live music, and thanks to over 20 food trucks present, plenty of tasty eats to choose from. Here’s a rundown of some of the items we tried.

Bahn ME

Bahn Me doesn’t mean just sandwiches. This trendy truck also specializes in pho-rritos, spring rolls, and best of all, tacos. I recommend the Korean steak tacos: grilled steak marinated in a house kalbi sauce topped with chipotle crema, cabbage vinaigrette slaw and kimchi. They’re colorful, perfectly portioned and totally Instagram-worthy -- basically, everything you’d want in a street taco.

Price: $3 per taco

Buddies Bubble Tea

Bubble tea is having a moment right now, and we totally get why. The icy milk-tea is sweet, refreshing and comes in all kinds of fruity flavors like strawberry, taro and mango. We tried Buddies’ tea of the day: coconut. Fresh flakes made up the thick, frosty drink, making it the perfect island drink.

Price: $5

Formaro’s Stuffed

Mac and cheese cravings. Everybody gets them. Settle yours with a buttery bun oozing with the nostalgic stuff. The noodles were thick, cheesy and tasted like childhood in every gooey bite. Prefer something heartier? Go with the ribeye and cheese or stuffed meatball sandwich.

Price: $6

Prairie Sol Creperie

Here comes the sun -- in food truck form. The bright yellow creperie was serving four signature crepes: the Fall Mouth, Pad Thai, Apple Cobbler and Nutella & Bananas. We went with the cobbler, a perfect concoction of all that is fall. The thick crepe was spilling with spiced apples and topped with oat crumble, pumpkin whip cream and salted caramel drizzle. *drools*

Price: $7

A Taste of Heaven

BBQ lovers certainly will be drawn in by the heavenly smell, but the taste was anything but. Think ballpark nachos with super smoky, super salty brisket. And the portions were simply too small for the price. Disappointing, but we learned two valuable lessons with this one. 1. Smells are deceiving. 2. Always trust the line.

Price: $7
