Along with the Truck Yard, there are several other parks in Dallas and Fort Worth serving lunch and dinner.
In Dallas, the Fly By Food Truck Park is open Wednesday for lunch, Thursdays and Fridays for lunch and dinner and Saturdays for dinner. A variety of trucks rotate each service, so be sure to check Facebook and Twitter to see who is there each day.

Monday through Friday for lunch, you can find trucks at Thistle Hill in Forth Worth. I am a big fan of this location. It is very relaxing and beautiful, and the grounds are shaded enough that the sun isn’t a problem. www.facebook.com/FoodParkAtThistleHill
