Here are some of the most decadent food truck dishes that we’ve missed the most. 

1. The 1776 Grill -- Bacon-stuffed grilled cheese 

As soon as you know that every 1776 sandwich starts with bookends of grilled garlic toast, you’ll know why we can’t wait to get our hands on another bacon-stuffed grilled cheese ASAP. This treat is the definition of ooey-gooey.

2. PA’s Pork -- Pulled pork nachos

We could pretty much name anything from PA’s menu that we really miss. But something about their house-made, queso-drizzled nachos that are tiny vehicles for heaps of PA’s pulled pork has us seriously missing this dish.

3. Son Of a Biscuit -- French toast bites

Son Of a Biscuit keeps it simple here, and we’re more than okay with that. These perfectly dippable, poppable and squishable rounds of sweet and savory goodness are completely worth the sticky fingers that follow.

4. Thai1On -- Pad Thai

The Pad Thai at Thai1on has never disappointed us and we’re ready for the reliable flavor fest of this foodie dish to be back in our bellies. Traditional Thai noodles, eggs, carrots, cabbage and peanuts with homemade sauce — yeah, we’re excited.

5. The Drunken Waffle -- War Pig sandwich

Let’s just let the ingredients of this tall stack speak for itself: smoked ham, bacon, Monterrey Jack cheese and herbed mayo on a spicy three pepper waffle.  There’s no room for mistakes in this waffle ’wich.
