The food fight between restaurateurs and mobile gourmet trucks has picked up in recent weeks with a tussle over a prime customer base: the lunch crowd.

Steve Sevag, operator of the gourmet food truck Meet 'n Potatoes, is one of the mobile food vendors who’s been caught up in the clash.

Several business owners expressed concerns last week to police and city officials about Meet ‘n Potatoes, which they alleged was parked illegally on a Glendale street.
