This year, for the first time, local food trucks will be set-up on Leigh Street outside the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center for training camp.
Six trucks will be serving everything from cookies to hot dogs to thousands of fans during the three-week long camp. Carytown Burgers and Fries has been getting ready for the event since the beginning of the year. Along with their original menu, they will also be serving up some Redskins-themed dishes.
Fans will be able to score a RGIII burger, named after Redskins Quarterback Robert Griffin III, a burgundy and gold macaroni and cheese burger and Redskins potato salad.
"The experience Redskins fans will have this year will be a real Richmond experience," said Michael Barber, owner of Carytown Burgers & Fries. Barber said they will also be selling some Redskins-themed promotional items, including Carytown Burgers and Fries T-shirts, koozies and bumper stickers.
Red Eye Cookie Company will also have a truck lined up outside the training center. Brayden Pleasants, president of the late-night cookie shop said, "We have beefed up our dough reserves."
There are about 20 bakers on the shop's roster and they have their game plan ready. "The cookies will be baked about 2 to 3 a.m. And then our workers will be getting out there around 7 a.m.," Pleasants said. "We offer all our flavor sat the training camp. We like to run the gam it from classic flavors like chocolate chip, peanut butter and snickerdoodle to move unique flavors."
Other food trucks that will be participating include Boardwalk Hot Dogs, Buz and Ned's, Bodillaz and Opa.
Redskins training camp runs from July 24- aug 11. Most food trucks will be open starting at 7 AM.
