We try and get to Roxy's truck whenever we go to Boston and are never disappointed. Our last few trips, we got there too late and missed the Mighty Rib sandwich for the day. But not this day! We got to the truck early and finally were able to enjoy what has to be their most popular item. Both of... More

While simple, their grilled cheese is absolutely amazing and you can tell it has high quality cheese. The prices are reasonable for what it is. If you spot the truck out and about definitely stop by - you won't regret it!

If your going to have a specialty shop for a food fundamental...something anyone can make in 10 minutes, then you need to hit it out of the park. I have been a couple times and cant understand the hoopla. Had the one with rib meat in it, and yep, its a grilled cheese with warm, seasoned meat, but not very... More

If you spot this food truck give their gourmet grilled cheese a try! We found them in Harvard Square. A couple years ago they were on the Food Network - Food Truck Wars.

Have been wanting to try their grilled cheese forever and it completely met my expectations and more! The best truffle fries I've ever had, loved the green muenster grilled cheese and I thought the prices were very fair. Not easy to park though on a Saturday afternoon. Go here strictly for the food!!

I was so excited to finally try the Roxys food truck! I waited in line for about 30 min and it was well worth it! I ordered the Mighty Rib Melt ($8), which was crispy on the outside with gooey fontina cheese and deliciously saucy braised short rib. This sandwich was phenomenol...I have never had anything like it! I will... More

Limited but solid fare, with some creative sandwich options too. However, fairly heavy and greasy, so not for the faint of heart. Truffle fries are good as well. Friendly to dietary restrictions.

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
