Travel Channel's Andrew Zimmern hosted the sold-out event, which featured 22 food trucks, most of them from our own backyard.
Our favorite food-truck chefs, decked out in royal-blue chefs jackets, courtesy of the festival, served thousands of sliders, tacos, sandwiches, and bites as a band covered party music.
Though lines were long for food-truck delights, guests made the best of it, grabbing a beer or a bottle of Freixnet sparkling wine (complete with neon-lit straw) to make the wait a little more fun.
A volleyball court was set up on the beach (we spotted Top Chef's Spike Mendelsohn playing), as were South Beach Food & Wine Festival-branded Ping-Pong tables for a little postfood play. As the night (and festival) wound down to a close, Zimmern took to the stage to announce the winning food truck for the evening, which was voted on by event attendees.
Ms. Cheezious took the title by a close margin. According to Zimmern, only two votes separated the winner from the second-place truck, which wasn't named.
