Lola Food Truck Visits Downtown Mankato

You guys!!!

We’ve mentioned before about how much we love Lola- read about that here. Imagine our delight when we discovered their food truck is in town every Wednesday until the snow flies, or October- whichever comes first. Could be either here in Minnesota!

You can find them on Riverfront Drive in Mankato, MN. I talked to one of the gals working and she said in a few weeks they’ll be directly in the Bent River Outfitters parking lot that is being paved. The parking lot will include a stage and picnic tables. For now, it’s about 25 yards away from its future parking lot and it’s a great spot with easy access and shaded seating.


Check out this menu- some of the same items from their restaurant in New Ulm!

I told Dusty I would bring lunch home for us while I was out running errands. It would have been fun to eat right at the food truck but that wasn’t in the cards for this visit. We live just down the road from where the Food Truck is located and the food held up great on the drive home.

For some reason, I had it in my mind that it would be just little half servings of food. I was wrong and ordered way too much, not that we didn’t eat it all just the same! Dusty loves sandwiches so I ordered the Muffaletta which is ham, salami, olive salad and lettuce on a baguette. Oh my word!!! This was so good.

I also took home some Rosemary Fries- WOW. These were good and that lemon aioli was so good.

The menu had me at Nachos so I took some of those home as well. Pulled chicken, black bean salsa, cheese sauce, guacamole, cilantro and sour cream. Divine!

Dining Duster advice- go hungry and the only problem you’re going to have at the Lola Food Truck is deciding what to order. You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu. Bring a friend and order a few different things so you can share!

When: Wednesdays 11am-2pm now through October

Where: Riverfront Drive in Mankato near Bent River Outfitter

P.S. We recommend that you take a long lunch and go across the street to Salvage Sisters Mercantile. Salvages Sisters was recently featured on HGTV- you can read about it here and they have the cutest re-purposed furniture and locally made goods. Worth a stop!

We'd love to hear from you!
