Food trucks have been a staple in Houston for some years now. Some have had so much success as mobile trucks, their owners have expanded to a fleet of trucks. Others have become popular brick-and-mortar restaurants. And when they leave the food truck game, others pop up to fill the gap — while some prefer to remain on the truck scene.

Since we're broadcasting live today from Jones Plaza in Houston's theater district on a Food Truck Tuesday – the district’s collaboration with Houston First hosting a number of food trucks near the plaza each Tuesday — we thought we’d have our gaggle of food writers discuss how the food truck scene has changed in Houston in recent years and offer their suggestions for some of the best food trucks in operation today, in this special edition of The Full Menu.

Today's conversation features: Katharine Shilcutt of Houstonia Magazine, David Leftwich of Sugar and Rice Magazine, and Eric Sandler of CultureMap Houston.
