No, this isn’t Mario Kart™, but you still get to choose your cart. Our first-rate food carts are the perfect addition to your private event, serving up a straightforward menu of finger foods and shareable bites prepared before arrival. Whether it be an appetizer, dessert truck, or anything in between we have you covered.
