The key to happiness at The Texas Food Truck Showdown is Tasty Tickets. To get food from ANY of the trucks at The Texas Food Truck Showdown you’ll need to purchase Tasty Tickets. During the competition, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., trucks will not be accepting anything other than Tasty Tickets for food. Tasty Tickets will be available for sale (cash or credit card) at the ticket tents during the event. Once you have Tasty Tickets you are free to use them at any truck you want! The tents where Tasty Tickets are purchased will accept cash or credit card.
One Tasty Ticket will be $5 for a 4 oz signature dish.
*Please Note*: Tasty Tickets will not be sold after 3 p.m. and they become invalid after 4 p.m.; no refunds for unused tickets. The food trucks will reopen at 5 p.m. with their full menu options and you will pay the trucks directly for purchases at that time.
The Tasty Tickets allow the trucks to focus solely on creating and serving their signature dish for you to eat instead of processing payments via card or cash. This will help the lines move faster allowing you to try more trucks!
Bottled water and soda will also be available for purchase directly from drink vendors (drinks cannot be purchased from food truck vendors). NO tickets will be taken for drinks.
Presale Tasty Tickets
The Texas Food Truck Showdown does not offer refunds due to poor weather conditions. All sales are final rain or shine.
Tasty Tickets can be purchased in person at the event on April 1st (101 S. Third Street, Waco, TX 76701). Tickets purchased online in advance of the showdown can pick up – with proof of receipt – tickets at the Will Call ticket tent where all presale tickets will be held during the event. A photo ID is required to pick up tickets at Will Call and it must match the name that purchased the Tasty Tickets.
