A crowd filled Dewey Square for the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway’s Mobile Food Fest on April 5, 2012.

Think of it as the Red Sox vs. the Yankees, only with lobster rolls and tacos instead of loaded bases and home runs.

Popular Boston food trucks such as Roxy’s Grilled Cheese, Bon Me, and Kick*ss Cupcakes will face off against competitors from New York in an epic 10-hour competition Saturday on the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway, as the First Annual Food Truck Throwdown pits seven local kitchens-on-wheels against seven trucks run by culinary A-Rods.

The free event will run from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 13, in Dewey Square, across from South Station. Live music will entertain the hungry crowd as celebrity judges, including NECN personality Jenny Johnson, crown one competitor the Best Food Truck.

Organized by Sara Ross, owner of Kick*ss Cupcakes, the event’s Boston contingent will also include Bon Me, Lobsta Love, Mei Mei Street Kitchen, Roxy’s Grilled Cheese, Staff Meal, and the Cookie Monstah. New York trucks will include Bian Dang, Big D’s Grub Truck, Fishing Shrimp, Mike ’n’ Willie’s, the Munchie Mobile, Nuchas Artisan Hand-Held Foods, and Wafels & Dinges.
