Just a short rural drive from downtown Mount Dora, sits a remote little eatery that combines the convenience of a food truck with the ambiance of a beer garden.
Nestled under live oaks, the IGA Food Truck Park offers traditional favorites like Angus beef burgers with brioche buns which include the Classic burger ($7) a gyro burger ($9), as well as a plant-based Impossible burger. The yellow truck also dishes out a variety of tacos like steak, chicken and mahi that are served three per order ($7).
There are also about half a dozen types of sandwiches available, including a Prime Rib Philly Cheesesteak, a classic gyro, grilled Mahi, plus an Indian Chicken Tikka naan sandwich and a traditional Cuban sandwich ($8 to $9). Mount Dora Buzz dove into the Prime Rib Philly, along with the double All-American burger and the Chicken Tikka and all were delish.
Unlike the food trucks in more urban areas, this one sits on a shady lot filled with twelve picnic tables, a few fire pits and market lights that hang under the tree canopy. There is also an oversized Jenga-type game to keep patrons amused. Not only does the outdoor ambiance and quality food attract patrons, but so does the daily happy hour from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. that gives $2 off all burgers.
For those that want breakfast on the go, the truck also has a handful of breakfast sandwiches and a breakfast burger available. For little ones, there is also a kids menu.
The truck opened three years ago and prepares everything made-to-order with fresh ingredients from the IGA market directly across the street. The IGA Food Truck is located at 31428 County Road 435 in Mount Plymouth. It’s open daily 11:00 a.m. to 8 p.m. For more news and events in Mount Dora, Tavares & Eustis, this month, click here.
