While a familiar jingle might send kids running after an ice cream truck, the savory scents and basic convenience of Cincinnati’s food trucks are reason enough to attract crowds. No matter what type of food gets you salivating, Cincinnati’s food trucks can curb your craving with grab-and-go from around the globe.

1. American: Mr. Hanton’s Handwiches

For a real hands-on food experience, try a Mr. Hanton’s hotdog or sausage. Whether they’re slathered in mustard or topped with bacon and cheese, Mr. Hanton’s offers more than just a hotdog: it’s a handwich with the toppings you want to leave you hankering for more. Monday – Friday 11 a.m. – 2 p.m., Thursday – Friday, 11 p.m. – 3 a.m., downtown, mrhantons.com

2. Mexican: Turophilia Quesadillas

If you’re a real cheese-lover, Turophilia is ready to tango with your taste buds. Playing with the basic concept of a quesadilla, these tortillas are stuffed with a variety of ingredients to infinity and beyond. Housed in a spaceship, otherwise known as a refurbished 1967 Airstream, Turophilia offers the scent of melted cheese and crisp tortillas, which should be enough to get anyone’s stomach growling. Tuesday – Friday, 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. E. 8th St. & Vine St, downtown, facebook.com/turophilia.quesadillas

3. Italian: Catch-A-Fire Pizza

Though it may look like fire hazard, this truck’s biggest threat is to stopping traffic. Grab a pizza piled with prosciutto and pesto or pepperoni and Parmesan, or build your own from the list of sauces, cheeses, and toppings. With fresh dough made in the truck daily and baked in an authentic wood-fired oven, Catch-A-Fire is sure to catch your attention. Monday – Friday, 11 a.m. – 1:30 p.m., downtown, Blue Ash, and Kenwood, $7-$9, catchafirepizza.com

4. Korean: Red Sesame

Set aside your chopsticks and prepare to chow down on Red Sesame’s Korean-BBQ-Mexican fusion. You’re going to need both hands for these dishes: Korean BBQ beef, chicken, or tofu burritos topped with kimchi and hot dogs slathered in lettuce slaw, cheese, and kimchi. This menu has enough flavors and interesting twists to satisfy customers and keep them wondering, What else could they put on that? Monday – Friday, 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m., downtown, $5-8, Facebook: Red Sesame

5. French: Cooper’s Crêpes

French women may be thin, but these crêpes aren’t. Stuffed with drool-worthy ingredients like Ghirardelli chocolate chips, caramel, and Nutella, these delicious treats are enough to send even the sturdiest of Cincinnatians into a sugar coma. Made to order on the crêpe grill, the warm, eggy crepes are the perfect bundles of goodness to grab on the go. Weekends and evenings, West Chester, Mason, and Loveland, $5-6, cooperscrepes.com
