A friend invited me to the Rutgers game tomorrow. I checked the map and the stadium is only 2.5 miles from the train station, so that's an easy enough walk for me. What's this? I pass the Grease Trucks along the way? This could be trouble...

To date, I have had 2 sandwiches from the Grease Trucks. One was a Philly cheesesteak with mozzarella sticks, chicken fingers and fries on a hero. The other was a double bacon cheeseburger with two fried eggs, fries and tzaziki sauce on a hero. Now all of you wish you were going to the Rutgers game with me.

That's not what confuses me (although I can appreciate your bewilderment at the many titles we Yanks have for sandwiches on Italian bread). What confuses me is that Erak is talking about a cheesesteak that also includes cheese sticks, chicken fingers, and fries on the same sandwich??? Or two hamburgers, cheese, bacon, TWO eggs, and fries, also on the same sandwich? And you're looking forward to consuming these monstrosities (presumably by unhinging your jaw like a snake)?????

I must also take Amy to task for not using a beloved Chit-Chat meme when giving the synonyms for a hero. After all, you sometimes call one a submarine.

Who says "submarine" when one can be lazy and say "sub"? Do you still talk on the telephone? Or even say you ride the omnibus? Of all languages, English is the one that is the most shortened and otherwise abbreviated. Is that in the manner of Old Kinderhook with you?

Don't knock it till you tried it. There's a reason meatheads and hippies coexist in perfect harmony there.

Lucky for me, I will be able to sample some of the leftovers by licking his shirt afterwards.

Not only that, but he'll be walking about a mile or so to eat that monstrosity, and then walking another mile or so afterwards to get to the game. I hope he's budgeting a lot of time in the intervals for digestion, etc. gulp

For the record, I enjoyed the Fat Philly - a cheesesteak with gyro meat, tzaziki sauce, chicken fingers, mozzarella sticks and fries. The best bites were the ones that combined the cheesesteak with gyro. So good. Sat like a brick in my stomach the whole ride home.

They had some new ones that I wish I saw before I ordered mine though. One was hummus, chicken fingers, bacon, cheeseburger, etc.

I think sometimes Erak's stomach gets switched out for a black hole.

I think the worst thing about being a crime boss would be having to write performance reviews for all of those career criminals.

I think that all right-thinking people in this country are sick and tired of being told that ordinary, decent people are fed up in this country with being sick and tired. I’m certainly not, and I’m sick and tired of being told that I am.

I grew up in Tulsa, OK, and these mobile kitchens came around to different places I worked over the years. Most people called them "Roach Coaches". They had really good cooked food, and some of them even carried healthy items like fresh fruit, yogurt cups, trail mix, and so forth. Surprised me when I actually checked one out.

Here we call them Taco Trucks. Because they say "tacos" on the side.

Roach Coach, Gut Truck, Burrito Wagon, all names I have heard used before. But it is my understanding that the ones Erak refers to are named "The Grease Trucks", and it is not just a moniker but the actual business name. They have been featured on a show I watched on Food Network and it went on about the crazy sandwiches they made there. They called them fatwiches or big ass sandwiches or something like that.

Edit, just found a yelp page and of all things a wiki page on them, they are called fat sandwiches, and have names like fat brian, or fat dave, that kind of thing.
