BEST FOOD TRUCKS 2012: #59

 

"Grilled cheese used to be your favorite sandwich," notes The Big Cheese truck’s site. "What happened? You grew up. Isn't it about time your sandwich did, too?" So what does that mean? Cheese from Cowgirl Creamery and bread from Lyon Bakery. The Thrilled Cheese (chipotle Cheddar with jalapeño and guacamole on sourdough) has to be a draw, but the Cherry Glen may be the truck’s true calling, something you’ve rarely seen: a grilled cheese with chèvre and lemon fig jam. — Arthur Bovino, 11/13/2012

Foursquare Tips

  • Try the unique sandwiches for the best experience. Cowgirl creamery cheeses are delicious.
  • Grilled cheese: the way you'd make it, if you weren't so lazy.
  • Midnight moon is where it's at
  • Craft cheese, not Kraft cheese
  • The Mt. Fuji is healthy because it is on multigrain with apples, right?
  • Pro: The cheese is local! Pro: The cheese is fresh! Con: As someone obsessed with cheese, I don't like the bread-to-cheese ratio (more cheese please!). Con: sandwiches are pre-made, no adjustments.
  • Awfully expensive for a grilled cheese sandwich.... tasty though.
  • They take cards! But bring cash for a tip.
  • Had to wait a bit for my Barely Buzzed, but it was worth it. A very tasty sandwich.
  • Good truck - line moves pretty quickly and a good variety of sandwiches.
  • Literally everything is good (but the Midnight Moon - goat gouda and caramelized onion on multigrain - is probably my favorite).
  • Barely buzzed with bacon. Man oh man!!
  • Tomato soup is not what you expect but in a good way! Took the heat right off of the thrilled cheese
  • The Thrilled Cheese #ftw!
  • Thrilled Cheese or the win!
  • Not impressed, very stingey with cheese
  • Not impressed. Really skimpy on the cheese. Name is a little misleading, should be called the "cheese spread"
  • My grilled cheddar/guac/jalapeo sandwich had neither guac, jalapeos, nor melted cheese. They were very kind about refunding for my unmelted cheese & green chili sandwich at least.
  • The goat cheese doesn't melt as nicely as cow cheese.
  • Full Vermonty = delicious
