On Saturday, April 2,, Stay West Weekends hosted its third annual Food Truck Festival.

The trucks parked in the bookstore parking lot to serve students free food. Students presented their student IDs to receive one complimentary food truck voucher.

According to Tiffany Powers, graduate assistant for weekend programing in the Center for Student Involvement (CSI), approximately 500 students came to the event.

The food trucks in attendance were Nana G’s Chicken and Waffles, Tex’s Tacos and Sweet Auburn BBQ. Sweet Auburn BBQ participated in last year’s festival, but Nana G’s Chicken and Waffles and Tex’s Tacos were both new to the festival.

“It was my second time going, and I would definitely do it again,” said Rachel Isreal, a UWG junior. “I liked the variety of food they had with the BBQ, Mexican and a kind of soul food. It was actually filling and not just some little snack.”

Nana G’s Chicken and Waffles drew in the biggest crowds of attendees. Even though Nana G’s offered two choices of entrées, either chicken and fries or chicken with a bacon infused waffle, there were many students walking around with a basket of the chicken and bacon infused waffle.

“I had the tacos from Tex’s Tacos,” said Briana Wilburn, a UWG senior. “The tacos tasted good, and I was a little upset that we couldn’t get seconds.”
