The best thing about Boston food trucks is that there are so darn many of them, giving you the chance to choose from gut-busting, calorie-packed indulgences, healthy, fresh favorites made from locally sourced ingredients, and everything in between!
If you haven’t tried these 6 trucks, do yourself a favor and track them down in the city this year – you won’t regret it!
Delicious comfort food based on the simple childhood favorite – the grilled cheese. But these sandwiches certainly aren’t two slices of orange Velveeta jammed between two skimpy pieces of Wonderbread! The Mighty Rib Melt features fontina, braised short rib and caramelized onion. Adventurous souls may enjoy the guacamole-topped Green Muenster with, you guessed it, Muenster cheese and bacon. Complete your order with a side of Hand-cut Truffle Fries or a cup of homemade Roasted Tomato Soup (seasonal).
Voted the Best Food Truck in Boston, The Dining Car serves artisanal sandwiches on fresh baked focaccia bread that they bake right on the truck!
