In 1872, Walter Scott converted a horse-drawn wagon in Providence, RI to serve hot food becoming the first urban food truck. Production of similar lunch wagons added covered seating—giving birth to the American diner.

As the road-side diner became popular, they took on regional influences, helping define early American cuisine.
