The food is prepped in the restaurant kitchen by restaurant staff and cooked on the truck by restaurant cooks; all of whom are Mexican and have been cooking for years.

With local, state, and federal restrictions being updated on a near daily basis, Yellow Cab Food Truck Rallies were forced to adjust their business model. The rallies’ organizers have developed a solution that provides food lovers with the chance to eat from their favorite food trucks while simultaneously practicing good hygiene and social distancing. Rallies will be replaced by Carryout events with multiple trucks and no on-site seating.
“Small businesses like food trucks generally don’t operate over the winter. By the time spring comes, they have used up most of their reserved resources and need to start making money again.” said Event Organizer Brian Johnson. “By adjusting our model to carryout it will provide an opportunity to support these small businesses.”
Food trucks scheduled to appear at Yellow Cab Tavern on March 20 from 5pm – 10pm include The Wicked Lobstah, Hunger Paynes, The Pizza Bandit, and more to be confirmed. In order to ensure customers’ safety, the following rules will be enforced during Yellow Cab Food Truck Carryout events:
“We’re doing our best to roll with the punches,” Johnson said. “We are committed to providing incredible food from the area’s best food trucks. It’s a matter of balancing service and safety, and we’ll always err on the side of safety.”

A longtime fixture of the Dayton food truck scene, Katie Marks of The Wicked ‘Wich of Dayton will be closing at the end of this season to deal with recently discovered serious health concerns. Rallying around her, The Yellow Cab and all of the trucks for the September 15 monthly Yellow Cab Food Truck Rally will be participating in a very special Sandwich Rally for Katie.
“Katie and The Wicked ’Wich have been hugely important for food trucks here in Dayton,” Brian Johnson, organizer of the Yellow Cab Food Truck Rallys said. “As soon as word got out about her health, we knew that we wanted to do something to help.”
At the September 15 Sandwich Rally for Katie, participating trucks will be donating $1 from every sandwich or specified item towards her medical bills. The Yellow Cab will also be donating a portion of the night’s bar sales to help.
“The doctors are optimistic about her situation, so we’re confident it’s only a matter of time before Katie is back in the community,” Johnson said. “Hopefully this Rally can help alleviate some of the stresses she has to deal with in the near future.”
Trucks participating in the Sandwich Rally for Katie will be Ramen Rickshaw, El Meson, Smokin’ Bee-Bee-Q, Thai1On, Greek Street Food Truck, The Drunken Waffle, Hunger Paynes Food Truck, Sweet P’s Handcrafted Ice Pops, Flying Santucci Bros., and Creme de la Creme Cakery.
