We all know what a food court looks like in the mall. Now imagine that reinvented with outdoor seating, local food options and adult beverages. Dining at a food court just got a whole lot better!
Stop by for a bite to go, drop in for a drink, or spend a few hours with friends on the patio. Most of the lots are open mid-spring to early-fall, and there are various locations around Traverse City.
Downtown, at The Little Fleet visitors will find a diverse selection of micro restaurants housed in colorful trailers. Run by local entrepreneurs, they offer everything from brick oven pizzas to Vietnamese street food. Local favorites include BBQ sandwiches from Cordwood BBQ, smoked potato tacos from Happy's Taco Truck and the Smash Burger from Glendale Ave. New trucks arrive frequently, so there’s always exciting menus to sample from.
Just a block away from The Little Fleet, there are additional options on the patio at The Coin Slot and Keg Stand taproom. Here you will find one to two trucks, complete with picnic tables and cornhole bags to play, making it another fun spot to grab a quick bite to eat. Oh, did we mention that it’s right outside an old school arcade? The Coin Slot arcade and taproom has tons of games that will bring you back to your childhood, from Donkey Kong to Super Mario Brothers to dozens of pinball machines!
