Brett Atkinson, owner of Wilma’s food truck, brought his latest zany (and always tasty!) culinary creation to The Star’s kickoff Food Truck Friday kick-off in April.

You can try a Meat Pickle and other interesting edible creations during Food Truck Friday, held from 5 to 8 p.m. Sept. 2 in The Kansas City Star’s parking lot at the corner of 17th and McGee. (Come early, because there will be a limited supply available.)

Ten trucks are scheduled to make an appearance — Wilma’s, El Tenedor, Pip’s Burgers, Poppy's Ice Cream & Coffee House, Little Italy, Monk's Roast Beef, Drasko's, The Waffler, Deco Street Eats and CoffeecakeKC. You can also try items from Ollie’s Local (bar) and Jones Bar-B-Q.

El Tenedor will also be debuting its new vehicle: a 24-foot Barth Command Vehicle at this month's event.

If you try the Meat Pickle or think El Tenedor's new truck is worthy of a shout-out, use the hashtag #FoodTruckFriday #KC to tag us @chowtownkc or @kcstarfood.
