It’s no secret that we’re all about the food trucks!  Well, maybe it is . . . we have definitely not shown enough food truck love on this blog!!  Some people find it inconvenient to stand on a long line and wait for lunch, but that’s part of what makes it fun.  Hubbo sometimes gets his lunch from a Mexican truck downtown and he even admitted it’s fun hanging out at the truck.  The key is to know what you want and get there early to avoid the crowds.  Most trucks have a Twitter feed now so they’re easy to find.  You can plan out a whole week of lunches just by knowing the truck schedules.

MrsJ and I tried a new food truck this past week by our office – a pizza truck!  I’ve seen this truck several times but was hesitant to try it.  I was expecting reheated old pizza.  What we got was anything but!

Restaurant Name Eddie’s Pizza Truck
Website  http://www.eddiespizzany.com/
Location See Twitter feed for daily locations
Cuisine Pizza – I refuse to call it Italian, since it’s become so American over the years
Order  Two 10″ pizzas.  I had sausage and peppers on a whole wheat crust, and MrsJ had what is known as Eddie’s Special (Sausage, Meatballs, Pepperoni, Peppers, Mushrooms, Onions) on a regular crust.
Culinary Experience(hot/cold, wet/dry, hands/fork) Hot/Dry/Hands
Service We arrived at the truck a few minutes after 12pm and waited a good half hour, maybe more.  We were told upfront that the whole wheat crust takes an additional 15 – 20 minutes.  Luckily we were not swamped with work and it was not mega hot out, otherwise it would have been awful.
Cost  $20.50 for both pizzas.
Satisfaction Oh my lord it was awesome!  It was worth the wait because it was FRESH, not reheated.  The crust was thin and crispy, the cheese was delicious (they have fat free cheese but I stuck with the part-skim), and the toppings were yummy.  I will admit I was expecting roasted red peppers and these were chopped fresh green peppers.  I ate six of the eight slices (trying to be a lady you know) and gave Bigz the other two.  Mrs J ate her whole pizza.  Not a surprise!  We may put Eddies in our weekly rotation!
