Prineville has four food carts in the community, offering a wide variety of food

If you are looking for Mexican food, German food, British fish and chips or a variety of sandwiches, Prineville's food carts have some dishes to tempt your taste buds.

"Personally I love the food carts," said Amy Hurt, a staff member of the Crook County Chamber of Commerce. "They bring some unique food. I love that we have so many options now."

Glacier Truck, Tony's Tacos and Jessica's Kitchen are located in a picturesque location by Ochoco Creek off of northeast Third Street. Cally's McBain Fish and Chips is on the other end of town off of Third Street.

Glacier Truck

RAMONA MCCALLISTER - Jerry and Dasha Kropacek hail from the Czek Republic, and bring with them authentic dishes from their homeland. Their feature sandwich is schnizels.

Glacier Truck, which features "Alpine-style" and German food, is owned and operated by Dasha and Jerry Kropacek. The Kropaceks are from the Czech Republic, a country in central Europe.

They specialize in homemade sausage, sandwiches, fresh salads, gyros, schnitzels and homemade soups.

"We make our own sausages, and everything is homemade," said Jerry. He said the flagship sandwich is the schnitzel. It consists of a breaded pork cutlet, served with mashed potatoes and pickled red cabbage over the sandwich.

"I have to tell them it's not a pulled-pork sandwich," he said light-heartedly. Their food is authentic from their homeland.
