This past Sunday on The Great Food Truck Race, the eight new food truck teams rolled into Hollywood and began the first leg of the cross-country journey. Day one had them selling in Beverly Hills, Calif., and day two took them to the city by the Bay, San Francisco, where they had competition from local food truck businesses. In both cities, Philly's Finest Sambonis racked up the most sales, winning the weekend. Unfortunately, Murphy's Spud Truck was beset with issues that put them in the bottom and got them sent home early.

Even without ever selling from food trucks before, the teams proved they could stand among some of the best mobile businesses in the city. And that's a pretty big accomplishment since the Golden State has some of the best and most popular food trucks in the country. We've got a road trip planned for you: From San Diego to San Francisco, you'll find some great mobile eats on the West Coast.

Start your road trip in San Diego at Devilicious, a former Food Truck contestant. Here you'll find sinfully made comfort foods with the motto "food so good it's bad."

Then move on up to Los Angeles’ Cafe con Leche, which serves authentic Cuban cuisine, including the popular cafe con leche.

And in San Francisco, get your dessert fix at Twirl and Dip Soft Serve, which uses local and natural ingredients to make its ice creams and even serves them up in hand-rolled sugar cones or compostable cups.
