I have eaten from this truck multiple times. I am never disappointed. Frog legs from a food truck!! My husband was very happy to see this and they were cooked perfectly. I have had the fish and chips, mediterranean burger, fried cheesecake, mac and cheese. Super friendly service and large portions. One of my favorite food trucks.

This 4th of July, my town had a food truck festival by the park. There were about 15 food trucks there and when I saw people walking away from Cafe Rouge Express, I knew I had to get it! The food looked exquisite- the variety, the portion size, the crunchy batter. Unfortunately, looks were all this food truck had to... More

Cafe Rouge Express was one of several food trucks that participated in a Volunteer Appreciation Week at Give Kids the World Village in Kissimmee, Florida. This was my first experience in eating from a food truck, and I must say that I was impressed. First and foremost I was impressed with the wide selection that they had advertised on the... More

Just because the bricks and mortar location is no more, it's no reason NOT to still enjoy the true culinary skill. This is my fourth visit to the mobile Cafe Rouge and the food is always top notch. I was eying the hamburger again (still haven't gotten it yet) when I noticed the seared Ahi wrap. I ordered it "lightly"... More

Sadly, downtown Sanford suffered a huge loss when Cafe Rouge closed. The family is however continuing their food truck and various locations in the area. IT IS WORTH FINDING!!

This restaurant had the best fish and chips along with other wonderful dishes. I'm not sure what happened, but I drive by their restaurant every day and they suddenly closed a couple weeks ago and now the storefront is for rent. I wish the owners the best of luck and hope that they are able to open another restaurant in... More

4 of us together with a 16 month old baby visited Cafe Rouge in quaint downtown Sanford. We drank beer (not our usual beer) but we thoroughly enjoyed it and the food was very good. The service was good and you got the feeling like you were in a restaurant in a small town village like atmosphere. There was no... More
