Food Truckalico provides day and location info for food trucks and pop-ups in Portland, Maine by curating Instagram posts from trucks and venues and organizing them for quick and easy reference.
You can jump directly to the original posts in Instagram for details and can share all the trucks at a location with friends to plan a meet up.

Ratings and Reviews
Got this after being frustrated by another one I was told to use, this one is simple perfect and never gets it wrong
In all fairness I only got this app today. Has 4 food trucks. When I click on each icon/link three of them take me to Instagram, which I deleted years ago, so I can only have limited access. The 4th link says page not found.
The app does say more coming soon, and shows a bunch of restaurants that most people are familiar with around Portland, but it’s June 2021 and if they aren’t signed up for this app by now I have my doubts they ever will be.
It’s a shame the developers didn’t put much into this app as it could be SO valuable. It appears to be pretty useless. This app is four years old so I expected more.
I’ll keep the app for a couple of weeks since I eat out often, and until Covid is over, it ain’t over - so I’m always looking for places to eat outdoors. If I find that it’s better than my first impression I’ll change my review. If not, I’ll delete the app.
Developer Response ,
Only a few food trucks operate in Portland on Mon/Tues (when you left your review). Wed-Sun you will see many more.
I manually curate the information in the app from the instagram accounts of each food truck because that’s where the food trucks in Portland all post their schedules. This allows every food truck in Portland to be included in the app without any of them needing to sign up or do anything other than continue to post their schedules on Instagram.
The app doesn’t require you to have the Instagram app installed, but it is admittedly a better experience if you do, since tapping a truck then zips you right over to that truck’s post in the instagram app to get hours and other details in the original post instead of opening a new browser tab to view it (which is slower and sometimes asks for a login to continue, as you may have run into).
If you haven’t tried it yet, you can also tap-and-hold the food truck icons to see full location and food truck names without leaving the app at all.
Food Truckalico only launched 3 months ago. The “4+ Years Old” text you see in the app store listing is actually referring to the app’s age rating (I find this misleading, as well).
Anyway, I hope you give the app another try on a day when more food trucks are operating and find it more useful.
Awesome food truck app
Let’s me see where my favorite food trucks will be and discover new ones on the scene! 🤤
