This is the fourth food truck rodeo on Raleigh’s Fayetteville Street since May. Thousands of people have turned out to eat from the dozens of trucks lining Fayetteville Street.
Unlike Durham, Raleigh has fairly restrictive food truck rules. For example, food trucks can't park on public streets or within 100 feet of a restaurant. Many brick-and-mortar restaurant owners were opposed to loosening those rules. However, the rodeos have swayed some downtown restaurant owners who are seeing an increase in business at their restaurants during the food truck events.
