Good fries, but that's about it - Edit

This truck is located close to my office, so I used to go there often because it's convenient. Not anymore though. For the fifth time in a row, they ran out of the vegan version of their BBQ Seitan. They only tell you this after you've been waiting for at least 10 minutes, and the fries you ordered already went cold.

If you're vegan, be aware that their philosophy is not about trying to be animal-friendly. The "vegetarian" label is only to make customers think it's a healthier option. This is obvious from little things like using mayonaise instead of veganaise, and not labeling which items are vegan. You have to ask for it, and their answers are often wrong (or they take your order but don't actually have the vegan version).

Pros: Good fries

Cons: Whimsical service, Not vegan friendly

Convenient and Friendly - Edit

This truck is really convenient if you ever find yourself near South Station. They open early (0730, trying for 0700 soon) and lines are usually short if you aren't there during peak time.

In the morning, I often stop by for a muffin, which is always vegan. Lunch sandwiches can be vegan, but make sure you ask, since some of them default to adding cheese.

One thing that is slightly annoying is that they seem to run out of stuff towards the end of a meal rush. They do get resupplied and will supposedly announce on twitter when that happens, but it's a bummer to head out to get a snack and find out they are out of fries.

Pros: cheap, friendly, convenient

Cons: long lines at peak, occasional shortages
