This blog was published as an opinion article on 03-14-12 in the Kaua'i garden island news.
Food trucks do not have the overhead of a conventional restaurant, therefore one would think the savings in overhead would be passed onto the consumer as I have witnessed on Oahu.
Every Food truck I have visited on Kaua'i is priced way to high. There's a relatively new food truck I pass by everyday, however after looking at the menu, it was the same old story, expensive! prices.
The only thing that looked reasonable was the kids menu, however you must be 12 or under, isn't that discrimination?
The icing on the cake is the audacity to have a mayonnaise jar on their counter in sloppy handwriting that says "TIPS!". My only tip to these food trucks is lower your prices and think volume or go out of business trying to get five star prices in a fast food environment.
