Quick lunch

Never ate at a food truck before so I thought I'd give it a shot. Food was very good and had a good crunch to it also the grilled cheese was a nice burnt look

This is a great stop for a sudden urge to eat. The menu has many good choices, the food is awesome, and it is ready very fast. They also have decent beer choices. This is the right spot when wanting to eat before going out, but not wanting to make anything at home.

Nothing too fancy, although the chipotle mayo topping was pretty good, and out of the ordinary. A great potato roll for a bun, and very lean, easy to chomp down burger done just right. If you are in Alston/Cambridge and don't have too much money, yet still want a dining adventure, you might feel a little hipster smug after discovering... More

I was exploring the weekend South End Open Market at SOWA and I was truly excited to see the number of food trucks parked at an open space. I was recommended by a friend to eat at ROXY's and I was not disappointed. I had the Green Muenster Melt: muenster, north country bacon, house made guacamole. SOOOO GOOD (: I... More

We had a mighty Rib grilled cheese, truffle french fries and strawberry lemonade. Loved the fries, they were homemade,crispy with sea salt and herbs on them. Sandwich was also very good but it needed more BBQ sauce for me. Strawberry Lemonade flavor was mild but also very good

Ran into Roxy by accident, a happy experience indeed. Very cheerful decor and great budget friendly food. They offer sandwiches and burgers. They were very accommodating with my gluten allergy. I ordered the Justin Burger with buns. Employee placed it on bed of arugula. Yum. Fries are out of this world and had malted vinegar, which is my favorite fry... More

Visited the truck in Harvard. Wanted the Green Muenster but they sold out just as we were arriving. Ended up with a Rookie Melt and Mighty Rib. Rookie Melt is fairly standard grilled cheese sandwich--a little nostalgic, but no surprises. Good and very simple. The Mighty Rib was a little more interesting and flavorful but took almost ten minutes even... More

You will blow your diet here. The short rib grilled cheese is the best - I get it with cheddar cheese which some people think is a crime but I like it! If you're heading to the Allston location (versus the truck) take the bus to get here because parking can be a pain. This is a really casual place... More

I daresay you will arrive at Roxy's brick and mortar in a much better mood if you don't have to drive there, because the traffic at that 4 way intersection- is completely nuts , and parking takes a long time to find. But once you're in the door and seated, there are welcoming friendly faces and good music (good LOUD... More

What else to order?? Grilled cheese is perfectly cooked. It gets even better with hot tomato soup. My mouth is watering when I am typing about it! Must try!
