Here are more Oregon food cart pods! We have a whole blog post dedicated to PORTLAND food cart pods, since, well, there are so many and so very delicious foods carts in Portland. But did you know there are several Oregon food carts and food cart pods elsewhere in the Beaver state? Here’s a list, compiled by innkeepers with insider tips on must-visit food carts in Oregon.
6th Street Station Food Cart Pod
2638 W 6th Street in The Dalles
This food cart pod in The Dalles is BRAND NEW! 6th Street Station opened in June 2021 and its website is still under construction. The pod is largely fine foods but also has incredible burgers and homemade milkshakes. A new hub for the food carts was created near the former Wendy’s restaurant on West 6th Street. The building will have a bar, deli, Oregon Lottery, and indoor seating. The idea is to be able to sell alcoholic beverages via service window. Once at capacity, there should be space for a dozen food trucks — at present the locale is half full. Each truck pad has state-of-the-art utilities and services. Stay nearby at Old Parkdale Inn
Bite of Newberg Food Cart Pod
910 E 1st St, Newberg (corner of S. Center & E 1st)
This downtown Newberg food cart pod has a little bit of everything and a very big draw. Innkeepers rave about Hunny Beez, American Filipino Fusion and the Bee Hive Fries – fresh cut fries topped with smoked pulled pork, cheese, a pinch of Mango slaw and green onion that’s then topped with sweet chili mayo, siracha ketchup and Hunny Beez Sauce. The G&W Caribbean Smoked BBQ is also very popular for its great meats and a spicy slaw. Peruse your choices now, choose later! Stay nearby at Chehalem Ridge Bed and Breakfast, Franziska Hause Bed and Breakfast, The Setting Inn – Willamette Valley, The Willows Bed & Breakfast, and Willamette Valley Bed & Breakfast.
The Annex Food Cart Pod
191 Monmouth Ave. N in Monmouth
This food cart pod does not currently have a website but you can read an article about it here. The newest food truck (there are two) is called The Loaded Grill and has a Facebook page. It’s a barbecue and deli-style eatery located next to the other food cart, The Donut Bar. The owners, a husband-and-wife team, opened The Loaded Grill alongside The Donut Bar as a way to support Limitless Ministries, the church that helped the couple obtain the parking lot in the first place. Stay nearby at MaMere’s Guest House. While at MaMere’s, also visit the independent food truck that’s half a block away by the Dry Town Tap House. Get delicious food and great drinks, while you listen to live music most summer weekends.
