The MoBowl Food Trailer Experience
We can now cater your next event from our brand new, way cool MoBowl food trailer!
All MoBowl appearances carry a $1,200 minimum. This covers a service period of 3 hours. All events extended beyond 3 hours will be charged an hourly rate of $250.
*A 20% gratuity for our hard-working staff is added to all MoBowl appearances.
Your guests cover the cost of their own food/drinks and if minimums are not met, the host is responsible for the difference between the sales and our minimums.Book the MoBowl Now!

- "The 'bowl' is a comforting and healthful mix of brown rice, black and red beans, avocado, cilantro, olives, cheddar cheese, sour cream and cilantro.
