Eats Amore - Mobile Italian Cuisine

Eats Amore Food Truck

Eats Amore is a food truck based out of Kamloops that specializes in sourcing organic ingredients that are local to the region. Their dishes often reflect the season as the menu changes according to what is available at the local Farmers Market. These wonderful ingredients are then made into homemade Italian dishes, ranging from subs and sandwiches, to pastas and salads. Vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free dishes are also available. Be sure to stop by and say hi to Natalie and Mikey.


Hot Mess - Mobile Mexican Cuisine

Hot Mess Food Truck

If there’s one thing people can agree on, it is that food makes you happy! The Hot Mess has always gotten the pleasure from making eccentric fusion foods and watching peoples reactions to their culinary delights. Onion rings and BBQ sauce on a taco? How about a bacon cheese burger taco? Don’t be shy, stop by and try something unique and eccentric at the Hot Mess taco truck!


Mr. & Mrs. Hot Dog - Mobile Smokies and Hot Dogs

Mr. & Mrs. Hotdog

Nothing beats a good old fashioned hotdog! Mustard the energy and ketchup with us while enjoying one of our delicious grilled smokies or traditional steamed hot dogs. We also serve chips, ice cold pop and ice cream novelties to refresh you on a hot summer day. We love nostalgia and quality so check us out and relish in our simple but flavourful menu options.
