I agree that people go to carts for the food but also for the proprietor. James King is so nice! We miss him up here in NW Portland. Shelly from Honkin' Huge Burritos downtown is such a wonderful person and I think that keeps people loyal to her cart.
I wish that there were more carts in NW Portland - there are only a couple of options.
Food carts do not compete with restaurants. They are two different things and I am not choosing to frequent a cart instead of a restaurant; I am frequenting carts instead of cooking.
Also, get current with the hygeine issue. Of course carts are regulated. There are less opportunities for carts to be dirty in the kitchen, actually, because the clients can see right into the cart, whereas in a restaurant you usually don't see the kitchen.
