Food trucks are a typical summer experience, and Tulsans line up in parking lots, neighborhoods, parks, and venues to try what these chefs have to offer. The flavors are plentiful and the bellies are full to eat after a break. These trucks offer a wide variety of foods that are perfect for any summer meal.
Cajun Boil Catering
Every time New Orleans is transplanted Dawn Green and her husband, CoryWhen the couple returned to Tulsa from their hometown, they longed for more iconic seafood and iconic Big Easy dishes. In April 2016, the green shrimp cooked events. Crab legs and lobster boiling followed. A month later, they found their food truck, opened Cajun Boil Catering, and attended local festivals and events.
The truck leaves the parking lot at the North Pointe Business Center, 205 E. Pine St., every Saturday from 4:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., where guests gather for cooking and daily specials such as choked catfish and lobster etouffee.
With the recent cancellation of numerous planned events, the Greens decided to open at the same location on Wednesdays at 3 p.m. They also introduced the Surf and Turf Potato, an oversized baked potato with grilled steak and sautéed garlic butter prawns, all topped with grated cheese and spring onions. There are two size options: a half pound potato for $ 15 and a one pound potato for $ 25.
The Crab Leg Boil is also available on Wednesdays for $ 25. This generous dish can be served for one or more people and features crab legs, prawns, corn, potatoes, and sausage, all of which are drizzled with a homemade butter sauce.

The Lewises will inform customers of their more permanent locations after the pandemic. Find the truck at facebook.com/dopesoultulsa.
Tacos El Trompo
A bright yellow and red truck is in a parking lot near a busy intersection in Broken Arrow. In this beacon is the namesake of the truck: the trompo, a vertical rotisserie made from marinated pork. The hearty meat is one of eight protein choices a diner can choose from for a taco or torta filling.
Tacos ($ 1.50 – $ 2.50) are street style: two small corn tortillas with meat and a serving of onion and coriander. It’s easy for two adults to fill up for dinner for less than $ 10.
Another popular dish is the gringa quesadilla with trompo and pineapple, but don’t miss out on a dessert. Churros ($ 5) are hard to beat, especially when drizzled with chocolate and cajeta (Mexican caramel) and served with whipped cream and strawberries.
