The Latin Arepas Food Truck specalizes in Latin American cuisine. We recommend the rabellon, which is one of the arepas.

Dayton food trucks are gearing up for a second season of the Food Truck Battles at the Yellow Cab Tavern. 

Two trucks will compete at each battle each week, both representing their style of cuisine whether that be breakfast, vegan, Asian, tacos, barbecue, etc.

The truck with the most sales with be crowned the winner. The winning truck advances to the next round and will fight to retain the trophy in later rounds.
