Living up to the brand identity of “Real. Texas. Flavor.”, the City of Mesquite allows for mobile food trucks to operate at a variety of permitted locations throughout the city. Food truck operators can apply for an annual $300 permit through the city’s Health Division.
On June 7, 2021, the Mesquite City Council approved an ordinance amending the Mesquite Zoning Ordinance, amending Chapter 8 of the Mesquite City Code, providing additional updates to the operation and health permitting of various types of Mobile Food Units (MFU) and incorporating an MFU-Operation Site Approval process. View the ordinance.
