Update 7/10/18: The United food truck was long gone from Union Square at 2:30pm today, and we're seeing reports in the comments that the team had run through their stock by 1:00pm. Be sure to visit early if you don't want to walk away disappointed.


Planning to be in Manhattan or Brooklyn sometime in the next 10 days? You might be able to grab a free lunch — or snack, depending on the time of day.

Just as it did last summer, United's running a food truck throughout New York City, offering a selection of samples around two of NYC's five boroughs through July 20.

The truck will be serving a mix of treats from restaurants at Newark's Terminal C, including:

  • DAILY — grilled chicken sandwich and smoked chicken wings
  • Mélange Bakery & Chocolaterie — plain glazed doughnuts and birthday cake macarons
  • Little Purse Dumpling Den — pork and veggie potstickers

Unfortunately my EWR favorite, Classified (pictured up top), will not be making an appearance. You can catch the other samples at the following locations, though:

The food truck's sponsored by the new United Explorer Card, but it doesn't appear that you need to be a cardholder to take advantage.

How we chose these cards

Our points-obsessed staff uses a plethora of credit cards on a daily basis. If anyone on our team wouldn’t recommend it to a friend or a family member, we wouldn’t recommend it on The Points Guy either. Our opinions are our own, and have not been reviewed, approved, or endorsed by our advertising partners.
