We had read all about this food truck before visiting Vancouver. Each day a feature and you really can't go wrong. There was a 15-20 minute wait since we arrived close to lunch time. We had the Hot Angiw which was so good and a classic. Both sandwiches were loaded with flavour and even came with some chips and a... More

Have eaten from this truck twice. The first time we had one of their specialty sandwiches (around $11.50) and it was excellent. This time, we had the basic grilled cheese ($8.50 for our choice of cheese on our choice of bread) - which was okay, but nothing special. If you really love grilled cheese, spring for one of the higher... More

OMG Good. We noticed a selection of Food trucks in downtown Vancouver, on a recent trip. There was a line-up outside of Mom's Grilled Cheese. I had heard about this food truck all the way down in Australia and, yes, it is that good. We had a meatball, grilled cheese special. Now, I know my Mom never used meatballs in... More

Gotta love a food truck outside the train station that serves up grilled cheese. Choose a bread, choose a cheese, choose toppings. Fun and tasty! The truck is adorable.

I love grilled cheese so was pretty keen to try it, but the rather unimaginative menu and exorbitant prices made for a poor experience. If it was 5 or 6 buks for one it would be fine but definately not worth $11 for standard ham and cheese. Slow staff chibbering between themselves instead of making also annoyed me. Give it... More

Very expensive grilled cheese sandwiches and they were nothing special whatsoever. And chips to go with it are basic Krinkle potato chips. I would not recommend their food as Vancouver has much better food trucks and food in general.

Just about to go into the Vancouver art museum, we needed a quick pick up and shared a grilled cheese with onions on whole wheat bread. Really good and one is definitely enough if you don't want to eat too much in the middle of the day. A few chips added crunch and they kindly halved the sandwich providing us... More

On our drive back to WA we saw the truck and had to stop. Wow it was great and service was so energetic. Only thing I wanted a daily special but wax the wrong day for what I wanted . But was not disappointed at all with classic selection.

My wife and I had been wanting to try a food truck for a while. While in Vancouver we found several around the downtown area. We decided on this one because it seemed to have more customers. It was a great decision. The food was fresh and plenty of cheese. It had a nice variety and the staff was very... More
