The two at Marsh Bend. Edna's and Rita's (Mexican). It's really nice!! We had the beef brisket sandwich from Edna's. It's was excellent!!! Fries were really good too. The taco's at Rita's were good (but the winner was the beef brisket). They have a pavilion that serves beer, wine and soda's. It's a great addition!!!

The food may be great, but how are these food truck owners sharing in the cost of the infrastructure? It looks like The Villages is paying for the real estate they occupy and providing tables, chairs, and shelter for the diners. And, who pays to clean up the trash? I would rather see free standing restaurants that pay their own way.

Quite an assumption.

Any proof that they're not paying Da Family...to be where they are selling food?

I'm just asking. I wonder, if someone can just drive a truck into The Villages and sell food, won't that discourage businesses from building restaurants?

The food trucks lease the spaces, just as a free-standing restaurant operators lease buildings.

Better believe the developers get a cut from every business operating in TV one way or another.

I am sure they do pay something for the right to setup in TVs.

That isn't what you originally (before editing) said...or are now implying.

Most likely no one here knows for a fact if/how much the food trucks are paying Da Family, but based on they're usual business model it's pretty safe to say...the trucks aren't parked there for free.

How come we went from how's the food, to who pays to park there.

Well said.... please stay on topic of the food truck menus and offerings and keep the developer greed/conspiracy theories for another thread.
