Metzy’s Taqueria Food Truck

The Chicken & Rice Guys

When we opened our first food truck back in 2012, we had one goal: introduce you nomivores to the ridiculously delicious world of chicken and rice. With high quality ingredients, alluring aromas, and the seduction of self-saucing, we knew our halal grub would be a hit.

BON ME – Asian Inspired Eats

Our name and food are inspired by the classic Vietnamese bánh mì sandwich. The Bon Me Sandwich, our most popular item, is a decidedly non-authentic bánh mì, and those daring enough to take a step outside the traditional are sure to be met with a tasty meal made with the freshest ingredients and full of bold, unique flavors.

Sir Loin Catering

We’re introducing our new food truck catering with “Local Fresh by Sir Loin Catering”. Being a full-service caterer, we will have a more extended menu than your typical food truck including gluten free, dairy free and vegetarian options foods.

Cupcake City

Owner Karin DiNapoli’s love of baking began when she started making cakes and cookies for her kid’s birthday parties and special events.  After several years of sharing her treats with family and friends, DiNapoli opened the doors to Cupcake City in November 2011.  

With strong ties to the Reading Community, having grown up and currently raising her family in town, she knew it was the perfect location for the bakery.  DiNapoli sees her customers as family and wants everyone to feel welcome and have a positive experience.

With Kona Ice, you get to flavor your own Kona shaved ice. That’s right! Our very own Flavorwave makes that possible. You’ll get your Kona from the window of the truck and then off you go to choose as much of as many flavors as you want! Flavor to your heart’s content. In short…you do you – Kona style!

Kid Dream coffee

Kid Dream is a husband and wife team who have been in the coffee industry for the better part of the last 7 years in pretty much any capacity you can think of on the cafe and roasting side. As of now, Kid Dream is a mobile coffee cart based in the North Shore of Boston.  Our goal is to provide you with the best customer service possible. We want to be a place where you can feel at home, talk to real human beings, and feel like you have the freedom to be yourself. We also will also have great coffee.
