Eh! - Edit

Yummy fries and I loved mostly all of their sauces, but the burger that I got was slightly disappointing-- did not have good flavor and was sooo small for a stee price! I'd say if you see this food truck, take a visit, but only for the fries and a shake!

Vegan food truck - Edit

Rated 1 of 5 top food trucks in the US. How cool is that? I went to the VegMichigan summer festival last weekend, where the truck was one of the food vendors. LOOOOOOOOONG line for the food. Finally ordered after almost an hour in line.

Ordered a coney, double hamburger and shake. Shake came out first and was almost gone by the time the coney & hamburger were made. I'm hoping that the portion size was scaled down for the festival, because if it wasn't ... what a small meal for a large price. Almost $20 for the 3 items.

Coney was a small veg dog on an extremely hard bun (whole wheat perhaps). When you put the dog in first, topped by chili, it's bound to happen. The bottom of the bun broke when I took the first bite, spilling everything out into the plate. Wound up eating all the "deconstructed" coney parts separately.

Hamburger was just as small, on yet another hard bun. Of course, the patty disintegated upon the first bite. Same as the coney, I wound up eating all the different ingredients separately.

The food was good, just the construction was sorely lacking.

Pros: Vegan, Great cookie monster shake

Cons: Food falls apart

a food truck of our own - Edit

Finally a vegan food truck. I caught them at the Eastern Market a few Sunday's ago and had chili cheese fries. It was delicious (and perfect hangover fare). I wish their menu was slightly expanded to include Mac and Cheese or something as decadent. If you "like" their Facebook page you will get notified of their appearance.

Awesome :) - Edit

I have a gluten intolerance, so when I first saw this truck at Vegfest MI, I was so excited to try it! Everything is vegan and gluten free and DELICIOUS. A little pricey, but people will pay to get good vegan food like this!

Pros: Gluten free , Delicious

Cons: Price , It's a truck so not always close by!

Yummy/healthy options - Edit

The truck was at Peacefest in Waterford two weeks ago! Wow! We eat gluten and dairy free, and organic as much as possible-this food satisfied my picky husband who loved their sweet potato and black bean chili, as well as their vegan everything cookies! Their vegan milkshakes were very refreshing and fabulous tasting! Thank you for offering these healthy choices when we were out and about!!!

Pros: healthy, vegan, gluten & dairy free

catch them when you can - Edit

Shimmy Shack is a real treat. They are all vegan and offer 3 sandwiches, nachos, fries (both sweet potato and reg) and some rockin' shakes. Try the black bean burger with the works and dip your fries into their Shimmy Sauce. They are super friendly. Lately they have been at the Farmington winter market every Saturday. They list where they will be on their website. Worth the trip!

Pros: reasonable prices, vegan shakes!!, swingin' tunes

Cons: gotta find them!
