Saturday morning I looked in vain for Only Burger’s food truck at its normal spot near the Durham Farmers’ Market. The truck had relocated due to the festivities and packed streets surrounding CenterFest.
Last night, however, there was no doubt about Only Burger’s whereabouts—not that there ever is if you have access to Twitter (http://twitter.com/onlyburger). Recently the mere mention of a food truck in the Triangle led to a conversation about the eatery’s spot as a contestant for America’s best-loved mobile kitchen in conjunction with the Food Network’s series, "The Great Food Truck Race," which concluded last night and announced the winner of the contest. At the close of a contest poll on Sept. 10, Only Burger held the lead over other food trucks from across the nation. But the local truck failed to snag a victory in the end, falling behind Big Truck Tacos of Oklahoma City. A win for Only Burger would have meant $10,000, plus a chance to star in season two of "The Great Food Truck Race."
