The Grilled Cheese Truck

Every Wednesday night in Orange County there is a food truck night at the OC fair grounds.  I don’t go every week but when I do go I always see a long line for The Grilled Cheese Truck.  Normally the line is super long but I finally got the chance to try them out without having to wait forever.  My wife and I tried their Pepperbelly Melt as well as their Cheesy Mac and Rib.  I was skeptical at first at how good a grilled cheese sandwich could be but after one bite I was sold on why their line is always so long.  Below is a picture of the Pepperbelly Melt, which has a great balance of heat from the jalapenos, saltiness from the fritos chips and a hint of sweetness from the buttery bread.

If you are not into spicy food at all then I would recommend trying the Cheesy Mac and Rib, it is literally a grilled cheese sandwich stuffed with BBQ pulled pork and Mac & Cheese.  So this sandwich is more on the sweet side but it still holds a mostly savory note.  I really enjoyed this sandwich but because I have a thing for spicy food I really liked the Pepperbelly Melt.

The Grilled Cheese Truck has a full menu of various grilled cheese sandwiches and based on the two that I tried I am sure their entire menu rocks.  To find their next location check out their website, but make sure you mentally prepare yourself to wait in a line.
