Looks awesome! Love the color scheme; it's very nautical with the navy blue and white. And the menu looks delicious.

I agree. Some people may not have Facebook (though I think they can still open up the FB page even if they don't have a FB account). And some people just don't like using FB.

Just a simple website with menu, location, hours, shots of food, etc..

If it's a public page, it will show up for anyone when they google the business name, or even a vague topic that relates to food trucks. A lot of small businesses are moving away from the more-expensive website and just running a page on Facebook. I guess the price difference is worth it in the grand scheme of things.

Also get a free listing on Yelp. Customers will start reviewing your establishment and will also find you through Yelp.

More expensive???

basic quality hosting costs under 8 bucks a month. Trust me an official site is worth it.

I didn't realize it was that cheap, kleenex. Personally, I'm good with a business' presence on just FB and places like Yelp, tripadvisor, etc. If that is all a business has online, I don't view them any less favorably. And I do take into account all the reviews for a business, not just the favorable ones or the scathing versions.

JMHO, though.

Hosting is just the beginning. Someone then needs to design, create and maintain the website. While there are free services to help with some of that, it takes time and a bit of marketing expertise to make it look professional.
