Food trucks

Food fight: A city ordinance passed in July 2012 calls for trucks to obey a two-hour limit for each of the designated food truck locations. This seems to cause truck owners much consternation. (Terrence Antonio James/Chicago Tribune)

"I knew it was time to get out because of the struggles," Le said. "The stress of it every day to try to find parking, I can't describe it. It is 300 times less stressful running a brick-and-mortar (restaurant) than a food truck."

By the numbers

30 Official food truck locations in Chicago

2 Spots at each location

17 Trucks licensed to cook food on board
