Foodie site the Daily Meal just released their second-annual list of the 101 best food trucks in America. This year, the Twin Cities can count two food trucks among the best of the best in the country.

Trucks were ranked on several different factors including social media followers, media coverage, review sites, geography, and actual canvassing of various food truck-loving cities across the U.S. According to their site, more than 450 food trucks were whittled down to the top 101 from around 40 cities.

Vellee Deli's Asian-Mexian fusion specialties and Chef Shack's uniquely wonderful dishes ranked on this year's list at numbers 84 and 10, respectively.


A Best of the Twin Cities winner, Vellee Deli recently bought their cuisine to the City Pages Beer Festival and continues to wow the crowds in both Minneapolis and St. Paul.

Voted one of the most creative food trucks in the nation by U.S. News and World Report, singled out in Bon Appetit, and the winner of numerous City Pages Best of the Twin Cities awards, Chef Shack is no stranger to foodie-love from around the country.

How does this compare to last year? Pretty similarly, actually. In 2012, the Twin Cities also won two spots on the site's inaugural list. Local favorite Smack Shack hit the list at 32 and the Chef Shack started out on the list at 10.
