Gut Truck

Back in the Army, we always had the Gut Truck come through the motor pool before lunch.  Also known as the Roach Coach, this was a mobile food truck provided by AAFES as a service to the troops.  They had the very best foot-long chili dogs that a young, greasy, Armor officer had ever eaten.  I've eaten hundred of foot-long chili dogs off of the Gut Truck.

Imagine my surprise when this pulled in to the work parking lot today.

A food truck from a very well-known restaurant hereabout.  I had already made lunch arrangements, but it offered the standard fare.  Tamales, enchiladas, quesadillas, etc.

The ladies tole me later that the food was very good.  This is the first food truck I've seen in Central Louisiana, and I hope that it's the start of something that will fill a niche.
