Eat St.–Find the food trucks near you!

I just downloaded Eat St., a free app from the Food Network that helps you find the food trucks near you. (This is going to be hot in Seattle! The City Council just okayed food trucks to park at the curb on public streets rather than just on private lots.)

I checked it out for my neighborhood and found just one mistake–it pinpointed the food carts I know about, but identified one bricks-and-mortar satay restaurant as a street food vendor. (Hmm, maybe I should walk over there and check it out. Is there a satay window?–would that count?)

The app (for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad) also tracks Twitter updates, has a link to the TV show, and recommends food carts based on your current location. For each vendor, there are buttons for tweets, menu, hours, and profile, though the trucks I checked mostly just listed their website or Facebook page.

Looks like a fun one, and the price is right! Download it here:
