Buffalo, NY (WKBW) - For more than a year, the Lloyd Taco Truck has been traveling around the Queen City serving up tacos and burritos and other lunch time snacks to hungry Buffalonians. Now the business is receiving national recognition. Lloyd Taco Truck is currently ranked 1 in the Great Food Truck Race Sweepstakes, searching for America's favorite mobile food vendor and is based on the Food Network show. The competition all comes down to online voting.

"It really just shows how loyal people can be in this city," said Co-Owner Peter Cimino. "They can rally the troops and what better than a cinderella story?"

The winner will receive $10,000 and get a chance to appear on the Great Food Truck Race show. The show airs Sundays at 8pm on the Food Network. Cimino says it would also be a great opportunity to highlight Buffalo if selected. Voting will end September 12th. If interested in voting, visit: http://foodtrucks.teamdigital.com/
