My wife and I visited their truck at the Watertown Mall today. My wife ordered the three cheese for herself and her mother. They loved it. I had the rookie melt(cheddar and tomato). I thought it was alright. We also ordered the truffle fries. I can say they were very tasty. We wolfed them down. My indifference aside, we will... More

My family just moved away from Boston, and unfortunately, we didn't discover the Roxy's Brighton truck until one month before we moved! This didn't stop us: we got it four times in three weeks. Hands down the best sandwich on the menu: the Green Meunster. Meunster, guacamole, and bacon are perfection together. We made sure to grab Roxy's when it... More

While visiting my daughter and looking for a lunch place, she told me there was a restaurant that had recently opened specializing in grilled cheese. Then I knew where we would be eating lunch! Even though Roxy's Gourmet Grilled Cheese is at a semi-busy intersection you are greeted with a very relaxed atmosphere inside. You order in the front from... More

Tried Roxy's at the SoWa market today and was not disappointed! I ordered the "green muenster" which has muenster cheese bacon and guac. Normally I don't eat bacon because of the extra greasiness, but it was amazing. definitely check it out! Their lemonades are great also.

Wow, Roxy's just opened in Allston and it's definitely the place to go for a gourmet grilled cheese and some delicious truffle fries! The fries are plentiful, 2 people could definitely share. There are so many choices in grilled cheese sandwiches, that it took us a while to decide. Nice hipster atmosphere added to the enjoyment. We each had 2... More

Not bad for a food truck parked on the side of the road... It actually hit the spot at the time - bacon, avacado, and muenster... Could have used another slice of cheese. Overall, I'd pay $4 again, but not $6

I stopped by this food truck for lunch and had the Mighty Rib Melt. Braised beef with carmelized onions and melted fontina. So very good!

Stumbled upon this during our trip to Boston and had to try it. I had the Three Cheese Melt and it was pretty good. My husband had the Green Monster Melt, which he said was okay. We also had the iced tea lemonade. I liked it, but my husband thought it was too sour. The food was ready quickly and... More

I just moved to Brighton, and found out this truck parks a block away from my apartment. I got two kinds of grilled cheese, one with braised short ribs and fontina, and another with roasted pears, brie, and caramelized onions. Both were amazing and I'll definitely go back. I want to try the fries, which everyone else seems to like.... More

Even standing out in the pouring rain didn't dampen the amazing taste or the crispy bread of Roxy's grilled cheese sandwiches. I imagine if the weather had been better we would have had to wait much longer for our lunch. The fries were also delicious. They do an amazing job putting together great flavor combinations. Well worth the calories!
