Tommy’s Lunch Truck

13 06 2012

You gotta love Tommy’s.  They never go on vacation and they really have the cheapest prices on campus.  The husband and wife are sweet, too.  The food is average, but fine and almost like home cooked.   

I mean, just look at these prices:

Let’s see how their grilled cheese scored.

Overall appearance: 9 Looked good, although it is a tiny sandwich.
Overall taste: 8 Nice flavors, just a little bland.
Size: 8 Teeny tiny, but appropriate for the price.
Greasiness: 9 Just about perfect.
Cheese (quality and quantity): 8 Gooey, melted all the way through, but it could have used one more slice (see price).
Carbohydrate Delivery System: 8 Thin, white bread.
Price: 10 $2.00 Perfect for the quality.
Extras: 9 No inclusions, but the price warrants that.
Service and timing: 10 Quick and friendly.
Accuracy of order: 10

Total score: 89

Nice job, Tommy’s! Thanks for being so reliable.


Jake’s Sandwich Board

3 11 2011

Jake’s Sandwich Board, located on 12th between Walnut and Sansom, was such a fun place to have lunch last week. With menu items such as the “Barnyard” and the “Black & White & Peanut Chew” milkshake, it will take you a while to choose what to have for lunch.


I chose the “Turbacon” with slow roasted turkey breast, cranberry-apple spread, smoky grilled bacon, and savory brown gravy.  It came with a side of potato pancakes, which were on the sandwich, not on the side.  And what a surprising addition they were.  I don’t think I would have enjoyed my sandwich nearly as much without that crispy but melt-in-your-mouth potatoey goodness. The sandwich roll was tasty and fresh.


See the juiciness? It was more than I could handle–literally.  I couldn’t finish the sandwich but I wanted to really badly.  If you work in the city, go there for lunch.  If you don’t, get there some other time.  You won’t regret it.
