With local, state, and federal restrictions being updated on a near daily basis, Yellow Cab Food Truck Rallies were forced to adjust their business model. The rallies’ organizers have developed a solution that provides food lovers with the chance to eat from their favorite food trucks while simultaneously practicing good hygiene and social distancing. Rallies will be replaced by Carryout events with multiple trucks and no on-site seating.
“Small businesses like food trucks generally don’t operate over the winter. By the time spring comes, they have used up most of their reserved resources and need to start making money again.” said Event Organizer Brian Johnson. “By adjusting our model to carryout it will provide an opportunity to support these small businesses.”
Food trucks scheduled to appear at Yellow Cab Tavern on March 20 from 5pm – 10pm include The Wicked Lobstah, Hunger Paynes, The Pizza Bandit, and more to be confirmed. In order to ensure customers’ safety, the following rules will be enforced during Yellow Cab Food Truck Carryout events:
“We’re doing our best to roll with the punches,” Johnson said. “We are committed to providing incredible food from the area’s best food trucks. It’s a matter of balancing service and safety, and we’ll always err on the side of safety.”
Yellow Cab Food Truck Carryout: March 20, April 17
Third Friday of Each Month from 5pm – 10pm

A longtime fixture of the Dayton food truck scene, Katie Marks of The Wicked ‘Wich of Dayton will be closing at the end of this season to deal with recently discovered serious health concerns. Rallying around her, The Yellow Cab and all of the trucks for the September 15 monthly Yellow Cab Food Truck Rally will be participating in a very special Sandwich Rally for Katie.
“Katie and The Wicked ’Wich have been hugely important for food trucks here in Dayton,” Brian Johnson, organizer of the Yellow Cab Food Truck Rallys said. “As soon as word got out about her health, we knew that we wanted to do something to help.”
At the September 15 Sandwich Rally for Katie, participating trucks will be donating $1 from every sandwich or specified item towards her medical bills. The Yellow Cab will also be donating a portion of the night’s bar sales to help.
“The doctors are optimistic about her situation, so we’re confident it’s only a matter of time before Katie is back in the community,” Johnson said. “Hopefully this Rally can help alleviate some of the stresses she has to deal with in the near future.”
Trucks participating in the Sandwich Rally for Katie will be Ramen Rickshaw, El Meson, Smokin’ Bee-Bee-Q, Thai1On, Greek Street Food Truck, The Drunken Waffle, Hunger Paynes Food Truck, Sweet P’s Handcrafted Ice Pops, Flying Santucci Bros., and Creme de la Creme Cakery.

A few weeks ago I met a couple girlfriends at the Yellow Cab Building for the Brunch Food Truck Rally. Since brunch is my favorite meal of the week, I was geared up to go. I was properly caffeinated, had cash in my pocket, and my pants had a little stretch to make way for all the yummy food ahead of me. When I got there I was shocked by the amount of people who had the same plan in mind. Everywhere I turned the lines were long. I thought to myself that surely no food that came out of a truck could possibly be worth waiting for, but wait I did.
We landed on the always fresh and delightful Shakery Juice Bar since my friends and I were looking for something light and healthy to eat…but smells of waffle batter and maple syrup kept wafting in my direction. Where was this heavenly scent coming from…? Of course the truck with the longest line of the day: The Drunken Waffle.
As I practically licked the last of my acai berry bowl, I made a mental note to wait for some waffles the next time. Fortunately the next time came around much sooner than I had expected. The Drunken Waffle was parked out back of the Cannery Loft Apartments the very next weekend, so my husband and I decided to give some waffles a whirl.
We ordered two meals and decided to split them. I went relatively traditional with the “50 Shades of Swine,” a bacon wrapped breakfast sausage cooked into the waffle batter. It was accompanied by a jalapeno maple syrup that wasn’t overly spicy, but left a nice lingering tickle on the tip of my tongue. My husband took a left at classic and went with a dish that was full of twists and delicious turns: The War Pig. This dish had ham, bacon, Monterey Jack cheese, and a scrumptious herbed mayo sandwiched in between a spicy, 3 pepper waffle. He also got a side of asparagus that were perfectly seasoned and cooked.
All in all, the meal was as whimsical as the names of the dishes, the flavor combinations were spot on, and the portions were not overwhelming. Most importantly, the waffles tasted good, they were fluffy and flavorful. I always appreciate when a restaurant (or in this case a food truck) can introduce some creativity into their food without losing focus of the basics. The Drunken Waffle’s food is fun and exciting while still keeping the flavors at the forefront.
So the next time you find yourself in a long line at a food truck rally asking “How good can food from a truck really be?”
Trust that it can be really, really good, and yes, it may even be worth the wait!
Where you can find the Drunken Waffle this week:
Wednesday | Air National Guard Base in Springfield (Military access required) from 11am-2pm
Thursday | WHIO (1611 S Main Street in Dayton) from 11am-2pm
Saturday | Home Depot Rally in Centerville from 11am-6pm
Brunch! Food Truck Rallies at the Yellow Cab are held on the first Sunday of every month, through September.
Katie Marks is the owner of The Wicked ‘Wich of Dayton, a food truck that specializes in fresh, made to order eclectic combinations to basic build-your-own sandwiches brought to the streets of Dayton. They offer food different from your normal routine; combinations of sweet and savory on delicious local bread, along with a variety of options for vegetarians.
Not only is she passionate about the food she delivers, she’s also passionate about Dayton. The Wicked ‘Wich of Dayton is throwing their 3rd annual launch party, with all proceeds going to TJ’s Place of Hope and Building Bridges, two great non-profit organizations in the Dayton area serving at-risk youth. Come for an evening of great music, local craft beer, raffle prizes, and amazing food!
Admission is $10 for 8 talented acts, all of which are from Dayton aside from our guest act, Jounce. Raffle tickets are $1 a piece or 6 for $5, featuring some pretty cool prizes from local businesses in the area. The truck will be accessible without the door fee, so if you’re looking for a great sandwich, come grab one! So Katie says, “please come say hello and try the food. Not only are you getting a better quality and more convenient sandwich, you’ll be helping to make a better Dayton.”
Before the food truck reason gets rolling, we asked Katie to take time out to answer our 10 ?’s:
What is your favorite ingredient to cook with?
My favorite ingredient to cook with is garlic. I think the best dishes begin with fresh minced garlic (not the jarred stuff). It usually has a hiding spot within all of our creations, including my home ones.
What ingredient do you dread?
Onions. I am so sensitive they are like mace. Fortunately, I have a great crew on hand to make sure they are taken care of.
What’s your favorite dish to make?
My favorite dish to make lately is French Toast. My mom made it for me growing up, and I’ve always loved experimenting with different batters and toppings. This weekend at the Brunch Rally, we are unveiling a new sandwich with French Toast as the bread. Stay tuned, I just tried it and it’s super tasty. (We are putting the menu on Facebook shortly)
What’s your favorite pig out food?
My favorite pig out food is The Root Beer Stande on Wilmington. There’s nothing better than their Mac-and-cheese bites and a root beer float.
What restaurant, other than your own do you like to dine at in the Miami Valley?
This is such a difficult question, because there’s so many innovative and talented chefs in the area. I wish I could give a top 5, although I’ll try and get away with food truck and brick-and-mortar. PA’s Pork always has my heart with their take on different styles of cuisine, while Wheat Penny has me with their out-of-the-box style and fabulous wood fired pizza.
What’s your best advice for home chefs?
My best advice for home chefs would be to try something out of your comfort zone. Don’t be afraid to mess something up, sometimes the best creations come from complete accidents or mistakes themselves. Try out of the box combinations. Cilantro and marmalade on a sandwich was because it was all that was in my refrigerator.
If you could invite any 4 guests to a dinner party who would they be and why?
These questions are challenging! My four guests would be:
1. The Wright Brothers. I have always admired their innovation, intelligence, and dedication to a concept. Their brilliance changed the way the entire world works, and it all started right here. I would also want to ask about being alive through the transition from horse and buggies to fighter jets and electric start automobiles.
2. James Yancey. Known in the music industry as J Dilla, he was a producer back the 1990’s that was celebrated for his sample methods with the very simple tools he used. I would say he is proof that it isn’t the artist’s tools, but the artist themselves that can create beautiful masterpieces with what they have.
3. Jack Joyce, one of the founders of Rogue Brewery in Oregon. I have always been fascinated with their business model and marketing. The company is ran strictly word of mouth, and they have a great concept in their bottling and labeling. Several of their ingredients even come from Rogue Farms, their own farm dedicated to the brewery. I highly recommend the Pumpkin Patch Ale during the fall, and any of their Voodoo Donut ales they come out with every year.
4. Paul Lawrence Dunbar. After reading his poetry, I would want to hear his story and also what his life was like in Dayton. I feel like he is a very underrated part of Dayton history, and often overlooked.
Who do you look up to in the industry and why?
I look up to Angela and Pete Olejnicek from PA’s Pork. They have been amazing mentors and friends as we’ve navigated the food truck waters. Angela is one of the smartest people I’ve ever met and is so talented at what she does, and Pete is also extremely talented along with handy. It always seems like the two of them can get through anything, and have used their wisdom and experience to help me through some tough times.
What do you do in the Miami Valley on a day off?
I always love hiking Glen Helen, and treating myself and my partner to a local venue for the evening. I am almost never disappointed with the local dining options, and the breweries here are incredible. I’ll also venture out to local shows, for we have some extremely talented bands that play in the area.
Share a kitchen disaster, lucky break or other interesting story:
We have forgotten the bread. Yes, the bread. All’s I can say is thank god someone (really a member of a solid support system) could go and get it in time, and that we are all human 🙂
We are so excited for the changes and hard work we’ve put in over the winter. From the feedback we’ve received, we’ve come up with some faster logistics, opened up an expo window in the back, and have begun some new sandwiches that we cannot wait to share with you! We love you guys and cannot put into words how much we have appreciated the support over the last two years. Here’s to an amazing third season!

Everyone loves doing weekend brunch. Everyone loves going to a food truck rally. Now, Drunken Waffle presents Dayton’s first best-of-both-worlds with Brunch! A Food Truck Rally on Sunday, September 25 from 10am-2pm at the Yellow Cab.
“Serving sweet and savory waffle sandwiches, brunch is second nature for us,” Beth Sparks, Drunken Waffle owner said. “We’ve discovered that a bunch of other food trucks in Dayton do it really well too, so we thought, ‘Hey, let’s host a brunch food truck rally!’”
Serving up brunch options alongside Drunken Waffle will be local favorites Smokin Bee-Bee-Q, Greek Street Food Truck, Harvest, El Meson and Son of a Biscuit in addition to special guests Lily’s Bistro serving Beignets and Boston Stoker serving coffee.
“Bloody Marys and Mimosa are a very important part of brunch and we’ll have them available at the bar during the brunch food truck rally,” Sparks said. “Brunch is always more fun with AM cocktails.”
In addition to food and drink, live entertainment is also being planned.
