With a plethora of picnic tables by the beach and increasingly bad traffic, it’s like this island was made for food trucks. Like catching sight of the ice cream truck as a kid, finding a fabulous food bus on the road seems like a stroke of luck. In case your stomach is too loud to wait for the wheel of fortune, here is where you can find Guam’s greatest food trucks in the wild.
Put this in your mouth. MoSa’s Hotbox was a dream brought to reality by opened by childhood friends childhood friends Monique Genereux (Mo) and Sara Pleadwell (Sa). Besides 6 oz versions of their award-winning burgers and gyros set on the island’s softest pita bread, the Hotbox has daily rotating specials. These are not food plates for the “kind of hungry,” plan to chow down and save the rest for later.
Look for the silver trailer from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday outside the Quan Building in Hågatña. On Tuesdays, the Hotbox settles in Agat, and on Fridays it can be found as far north as Upper Tumon. Call 488-6672 or Track them via Facebook.
If you’re looking for a home-cooked meal, look no further than the Spot, which is parked in the owner’s front yard. With low prices and big sandwiches, the Spot also offers health conscious options – whole-wheat buns and veggies, as an alternative to their double-fried crisscross fries. Though only those of true will power can take veggies over them fries!
The Spot is parked off Army Drive in Barrigada, between the National Guard Base and Happy Mart daily from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Call 929-4425 or visit on Facebook for daily specials.

Ponzu and wasabi are owner and operator Mark Elliot’s local spin on flavor. “It’s all very simple and mixed with love,” he said.
