Serving--you guessed it, grilled cheese. This truck is undoubtedly one of the most popular in the city. The Grilled Cheese Truck takes on classic versions of its namesake along with a slew of other variations. Try the ol' Cheesy Mac and Rib, Goat Cheese Melt (on Nine-Grain Bread) and Dessert Melts--all popular choices that are quite delicious! If that's not enough, there's a slew of extras you can get added on, like bacon, smoked pork and even apples and pickles. It's not your mama's grilled cheese, but it's still pretty dang good.

Grill 'Em All
Though they are perhaps best known for winning "The Great Food Truck Race" reality show, the boys at Grill 'Em All hold their own on the streets.

You may not be able to walk after, but your tastebuds will be happy.

It's a bit pricy for food truck food, sure, but this is LOBSTER we're talking about!
