    Hellfire Pizza Co. / $

    Hellfire Pizza Co. offers a variety of specialty 10-inch, hand-tossed gourmet pizzas for $8. According to owner Justin Murdock, the most popular choice is “The Diablo,” a classic pepperoni pizza with freshly minced garlic, extra cheese, red chili flakes and specialty sauce. The truck’s “Queen of the Damned” pizza is topped with red onions, artichoke hearts, sun dried tomatoes, sauce, parmesan and mozzarella.

    You Sly Dog Daily / $

    This viper red 1962 International Metro used to be a dairy truck in Chicago during the ’60s. Since then, it has upgraded from dairy to a variety of tasty hot dogs and bratwurst from around the world, with You Sly Dog Daily’s own twist added to each selection. With a price range of $2-6, depending on how loaded the dog is, there is an option for everyone. The best seller is the “New Mexican,” a hot dog topped with grilled steak, ground beef, onion, spicy sour cream, green chili and tortilla chips for $4. Other dogs include the “Sonoran Dog,” “Big Chicago” and the “New Yorker.” You Sly Dog will be at the Bashful Bandit, 3686 E. Speedway Blvd. on Sunday from 12 to 4 p.m.

    Haus of Brats / $

    Owners Petra Williams and Angela Otter from Germany bring authentic brats to the Tucson food truck scene, with a choice of sauerkraut or potato salad. The original Bratwurst comes on a fresh roll and sells for $5. If you’re in the mood for something a little cheesier, they also sell the Über-Bratwurst, a brat filled with cheddar cheese and wrapped in bacon, for 50 cents more.

    DC Jumbie / $

    This Latin-Carribean cuisine food truck offers a blend of tasty dishes priced from $3-10, all inspired by the islands of Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Cuba. The meats are slow-roasted for 6-7 hours on low heat as they are drizzled in juices and special tropical seasonings. Combo plates are available, which include beef, chicken or pulled pork, tostones, maduro, sweet plantains and rice cooked with coconut juice and a side of cilantro-garlic mayo sauce.

    Zany Beaver / $

    With a price range of $7-9, the Zany Beaver food truck specializes in poutine, a classic Canadian comfort food. Featuring a mound of hot fries smothered in tasty cheese curds and special gravy sauce, the fusion will make your taste buds thank you. Variations on the classic poutine are also available, including the Hot Canadian, Bacon and Pulled Pork.
