Red Truck on the Runway, Truckee Tahoe Airport, Truckee, CA When thinking of places to eat lunch in Truckee, you might not think of the airport as a first choice, but we're writing this post to tell you that you certainly should. The food served up at the Red Truck's cafe on the runway is some of the most delicious and unique food available in Truckee. The Red Truck has become well known in Truckee for serving delicious, healthy food creations out of their big red truck during the warm months. More recently, the Red Truck began serving its popular fare out of the cafe at the Truckee Tahoe Airport. It's the kind of place that once you discover, you'll quickly become a regular and need to go back time and time again. Those that are familiar with this spot continue to be eager fans and supporters, and for good reason. Not only is the food fantastic and quick, but it's always served up with a friendly smile. And to top it off, the airport location is surprisingly relaxing and delightful. Big windows create a bright, sunny atmosphere and make it easy to soak in the great views. With outdoor seating as well, you can take your lunch outside and enjoy the weather. The kids will love this choice because there is a great kid's play area right out the door with inviting green grass and a big play structure. The menu is made up of healthy ingredients with an ethnic flare. The thoughtful combination of flavors and spices creates a food experience like no other in Truckee. Daily soup specials and lunch specials are a great complement to the vast array of choices already on the menu. My favorite thing to order is the Bowl with lamb, but the Naanwich and the Gyro are popular choices as well. Don't forget to top your meal with one of the tasty sauces, as they add another delicious layer to the food. Freshly baked cookies are an irresistible after lunch treat, and if you're not in the mood for a cookie try one of the Red Velvet cupcakes, they're pretty awesome.
