Food Truck Frenzy Food trucks roll in with flavors to please all palates Story & Photos by Michael Lindsay Staffwriter 12 | Cumberland Now • September 2020 The rise in popularity of food trucks can be seen right here in Cumberland County, as the area boasts its own fleet of unique, locally-owned trucks. From Mexican food to Greek cuisine and everything in between, Crossville’s trucks have locals and visitors alike covered. “My favorite part is meeting people,” said Margarita Navarro, owner of Navarro’s Food Truck, via translation from Medina Navarro. “I started selling plates of lunch to construction workers at the rock quarry. Later on, I wanted a food truck so I could sell elsewhere. It took a lot of time.” Navarro’s and Tacos Guadalajara are Crossville’s two main Mexican food trucks and can be found throughout town and at special events weekly. Each offers a variety of tacos, burritos, quesadillas and more. Foreign food lovers aren’t limited to Latino foods.
