The Dude and His Food – Food Truck

Yep, yet again, another food truck with a ridiculous name. I think these guys all get together, write a bunch of ridiculous names on slips of paper, throw them in a hat, then take turns choosing and naming their trucks from the slips. Okay, that’s probably not true, but it’s a better explanation than the owner of this truck probably has! Luckily, we’re here to talk about the food, not the marketing on the truck.

I was looking for a small entree to go with my fruit, for lunch, so my coworker and I split “The Boxing Dude” which is a prime rib sandwich, sprinkled with blackening spice and topped with grilled onions, grilled peppers and melted blue cheese crumbles on a warm hoagie roll.

The best, and rightful start of this sandwich is the meat. Tender and well seasoned with no excess fat anywhere, this meat was delicious! I was too happy to grab my fork and eat the extra meat spilling over the bun. This truck is not stingy with it and considering you’re paying $8 for only the sandwich, that’s a good thing.

I had two complaints about this sandwich, one of which was minor. My minor complaint concerned the blue cheese. I think most people that order this sandwich will do so because they love blue cheese, but I’m not a huge fan of the stuff, so I found myself pushing a few of the larger crumbles off the meat. Given how strong and distinct the taste of blue cheese is, I really do think it’s best used lightly.

The worst part of the sandwich was the bread. When I bit into it, it didn’t have the baked bread smell. It was plain and tasted like it was straight out of a pack of bread from the store. Literally. It wasn’t even warm. It definitely would’ve benefited from a second or two on the grill. In addition, the bread was soft, almost gummy, which, you guessed it, meant the sandwich didn’t really hold up under the weight of the meat. If I could say anything to the owners, it would be to get better bread, because they sure know what they’re doing with their meat.

Overall, I totally recommend this food truck. I was splitting a sandwich with someone, so I had to acquiesce some of my personal tastes, which is why I ordered a sandwich I probably would’ve skipped any other time. I’m glad to say I didn’t skip it. Even with the lackluster bread, I was wishing I had the whole sandwich! Go get one and enjoy! And hey, if you’re looking to save a few calories, just toss the lackluster bread and everything else.
