Reader: Food trucks need to keep friendliness on the menu

Denver's food-truck scene was already revving up before the The Great Food Truck Race landed in town this past weekend, and the contrast between the out-of-town characters, including the grilled-cheese whizzes behind Roxy's, and our homegrown crews had Denverites hungering for more.

As Jason said:

I've always found that one of the great things about street food in Denver is being able to chat with the cook while they're preparing food and, to that end, friendliness is certainly an important characteristic. I'm glad you noted the personalities on the Roxy's truck because, it was the only time I felt like a customer rather than a means to a 100k end this weekend.

So, friendliness counts. What are the other lessons that Denver's food trucks can take away from The Great Food Truck Race's pit stop in Denver?
