I think that no matter where these food carts would end up, there would always be some controversy as to whether they are taking money away from a brick and mortar business, unless they were segregated to a completely restaurant-free zone, which I feel would be unfair to them as business owners. I stand by the opinion that people wanting to go sit down at a restaurant have pretty much made that decision, and won't necessarily be swayed by a cart selling similar items close by. Now, if that business finds that, for example, their sandwiches are not selling, and yet Mr. Sandwich has them flying off his cart, perhaps they need to reevaluate their sandwiches. A lot of people just want a good balance of quality and price, not always the cheapest thing, which is what a lot of carts seem to offer.
