One of the Shore's favorite food trucks is apparently looking to take his treats up the Parkway, to spread his delicious food to North Jersey.

The Empanada Guy, whose red truck with his face beaming down, is a well known sight at the Ocean Ice Palace in Brick, as well as Freehold, and of course throughout the area at any number of food truck festivals, local fairs, and any other events where you'll see food trucks show up.

According to a report from, Carlos, the Empanada Guy himself, is going through the official steps to bring his savory Spanish pies to Garfield.

The article goes on to say that the plan is only in the early stages, with council meeting discussions and permit applications, but it would be great to see one of our local businesses that's become popular across a wide swath of New Jersey and beyond, bring their unique flavors to more of the Garden State.

We'll be sure to keep you updated on where and when you can catch the next permanent Empanada Guy location opening up the truck in a long term parking spot!
