Various food trucks from around the area gathered together at the Old Courthouse May 26 for the first Lunch on the Lawn, bringing a mix of culturally diverse menus Downtown. From Korean cuisine to all-natural twists on classic American dishes, we give you the lowdown on the tasty dishes you can find in the Tri-State.

The Chicken Club Taco features roasted chicken, lettuce, cheese, tomato, bacon, and ranch piled together on a flour tortilla. The Pow Pow Shrimp Taco comprises tempura battered shrimp tossed in Pow Pow sauce, served with cabbage, scallions, and Thai sweet and sour sauce, all on a flour tortilla.
