Its like the buffet just rolls on up to you.

The food trucks are back, eaters. The Truck Stop in the Crossroads (21st Street and Wyandotte) returns for First Friday after a winter hiatus. The gathering of food trucks in a semicircle around a collection of picnic tables from 6 to 11 p.m. will feature a collection of savory and sweet four-wheelers: 3 Girls Cupcakes, Indios Carbonsitos, CoffeecakeKC, Lufti's Fried Fish, the Funnel Cake Truck, Gary's on the Go, Deco Street Eats and the Magical Meatball Tour. Anthony's Restaurant will also be holding a beer garden. The Truck Stop will run every First Friday through October.

If you're sick of trying to sneak your Huffy into the drive-in, the Dinner and Bikes Tour is probably more up your alley. The dinner (prepared by vegan chef Joshua Ploeg) and movie night put on by BikeWalkKC begins this Saturday at 6:30 p.m. in the Event Port space (208 W. 19th St.). Tickets are $10 in advance or $15 at the door.

The second weekend of the Kansas City Food Circle's Eat Local and Organic Expo is from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Saturday at the Penn Valley Community College Gym (3201 Southwest Tfwy.).

You're busy during lunch, even if you wish that weren't the case. But instead of shoving a cheeseburger in your face while trying to keep one hand on the wheel, you can opt for something tastier. Zocalo (620 W. 48th St.) has launched its "9 for $9" lunch specials. The options include a chicken BLT, carnitas tacos, a Cuban sandwich and an Ensalada Zocalo (grilled chicken, mixed greens, toasted pepitos, pickled vegetables, chicharon and sangria vinaigrette). The Plaza restaurant also is serving brunch from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. The brunch menu (which includes a short rib breakfast burrito and crab cakes Benedict) comes with a complimentary cocktail.

What's on tap for your weekend?
