5. Dark Side of the Moo

Dark Side of the Moo is a funky burger truck that uses exotic meats instead of your usual beef. Rather than a traditional beef burger why not push the palate with kangaroo? There’s also bison, yak, venison and alligator sausages.

And don’t worry, if not all customers are ready for the “dark side” they offer the more traditional staples with something for everyone.
