New Food Truck Spotlight
With new trucks entering the scene, we will feature a new food truck each week. Cut Bait Café is a new food truck features fresh North Carolina seafood. The menu includes shrimp burgers, crab cake sandwiches and seafood tacos. Sounds like a nice way to bring the beach to a workday lunch.
