BEST FOOD TRUCKS 2012: #53

 

Oh, D.C. pizza truck scene, do you want to be Jumbo slices or not? Do you know? It’s hard to tell with people lined up during lunch down the block for DC Slices. As much as Washingtoninians may hate to hear it, DC Slices is much closer to Adams Morgan’s Jumbo Slice than it is to either Pizzeria Orso or Two Amy’s. That doesn’t mean it’s bad. Not at all. It just has that same mottled cheese and sauce look and texture, and that same non-crispy bottom. It’s a style of pizza that those not from Washington but who are adopting it as their next big city, and sensitive about their own small-town sensibilities, should just stop equating to New York and enjoy it for what it is, another regional style, and hey, a pretty good one at that, especially when you’ve had a few drinks (but not necessarily because of it). There are all the familiar toppings to be expected (including Buffalo chicken), no surprise there, but a strong side move is to order the tater tots either loaded, with pizza, bacon, and Cheddar, or chili and cheese style. — Arthur Bovino, 11/13/2012

Foursquare Tips

  • Get basil!
  • The chili is delicious! Gets your mouth nice and warm with heat and spice. Yummy green peppers and onions added in the cooking and if you love onions make sure to ask for more on top! Cheddar cheese,
  • Moving truck that sells pizza. The guys are preparing thin, Neapolitan-style slices ($4 each, $20 for an entire pie). They roll their own dough, make their own sauce & bake their pies in the truck.
  • Buffalo chicken slice with ranch drizzle... killer
  • Awesome Food !!
  • They have one of the best slices in town. And $5 for a large slice and a drink is a steal for DC.
  • the DC slices truck makes my day! I get pepperoni with the fresh basil.
  • Check out DC Slices as seen on Eat Street
  • Their most popular: buffalo chicken and jalapeno pepper with your choice of ranch or blue cheese on the side. Tater tots (plain or loaded) and deep-fried mozzarella sticks are top sellers as well.
  • Amazing Pizza! I'm an official groupie.
  • Order carefully!
  • Had the vegetarian slice today. It was excellent.
  • Try the empanadas - Pockets of love
  • A bit of a wait for some regular pizza. Would wait again...lol
  • Get the pepperoni pizza. It is delicious.
  • Best slice around
  • Hits the spot! And only $4-5 for a slice.
  • $5 for a slice and a drink. Pizza is made fresh on the truck. So good.
  • The truck is deep-frying its empanadas, and it's offering international fillings also. But the most popular pastry will no doubt be the one with the American twist: the bacon cheeseburger empanada.
  • Ask for a slice of veggie and a soda. Don't forget the fresh basil~!
