“DO NOT MISS THIS EXPERIENCE”
Reviewed 19 July 2013

We tried the truck with trepidation as we had been horribly disappointed by another food truck experience. We were thrilled by our lunch with Cindy and her crew. The grilled cheese and tomato was fresh, delicious and just what we wanted. Cindy was funny and enhanced the experience.
We deliberately waited until lunch time to get the Friday special, before heading out of Vancouver. Being of South African origin, we were so excited to have Boerewors and Mrs Balls' chutney on a grilled cheese sandwich. We were blown away by the taste, freshness and terrific experience we had. DO NOT MISS THIS EXPERIENCE. Cindy and her food just made our day.

“Cheese toast for lunch”
Reviewed 9 July 2013 via mobile

It was Meatloaf Monday for my first grilled cheese toast. A homemade meatloaf surrounded by melted mozzarella and marinara sauce on crusty French bread.

The food truck is part of Vancouver's fast growing street cart food movement, which now has more than a 100 carts offering every kind of food. Ideally situated at the corner of Howe Street & West Georgia, it is worth trying either the classic grilled cheese toast or the day's special.

Be warned, closed on weekends and you may be in for a wait during the busy working lunch breaks. This is certainly not 'healthy' food, but it does hit the spot!

“Great cheese sandwiches...construction workers please show respect to the female staff”
Reviewed 2 July 2013

Mom's grilled cheese truck is one of the better food truck places to have a good lunch. Each day they have a featured special for lunch. I went for the griiled bacon and cheese sandwich on sourdough bread. It came with kettle chips and a dill pickle. Simply majestic.

This food truck , along with several others, is located near an area where this construction occuring (Howe Street and West Georgia Street). As a byproduct of this, the food trucks often draw customers who work at the those construction sites. Although the food trucks do appreciate the business from the construction workers, I think the female staff of the food trucks are entitled to respect from the construction workers and do not need the unpleasant remarks emanating from the male construction workers.

“Not quite like Mom used to make them but...”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

Came across this gem while walking by the Art Gallery on our way to find something to eat. For starters, this is a cash only business so make sure you have some on you for the prices can increase as you add on items. They have a decent menu, grilled cheese, chili, and soup. I had the marble rye, with red onion, pepper jack and cheddar. The sandwiches are served in a paper cone with potato chips at the bottom and a pickle spear. The sandwich was delicious. The bread was thick, buttery, and the cheese was warm and gooey. Not like my Mom's but it was just as good. I also had a classic cream soda to wash it down all to the tune of about $9 and some change. Follow their twitter and find there location and check it out.
