Mobile restaurant trucks it around town

April 28th 02:04pm, 2010

042810_truckThe Dairy Queen Blizzardmobile left town yesterday, but we’ve got an update on a food truck that won’t be hitting the highway. Last year, catering company Famous Gourmet Meals on Wheels launched a mobile restaurant and it’s back again this year with more homemade cuisine, including a full lineup of chicken, beef, turkey, pork, fish and vegetarian dishes.

“All our food is homemade. There’s nothing frozen, and it’s prepared on the spot,” said owner Connie Sayrie, adding that the company buys its fresh ingredients on a daily basis. “We’re trying to introduce people to what they are doing in places like New York and D.C., but our concept is to offer inside dining-type fare.”

On Thursdays and Fridays, you can find the food truck parked in front of Union Station at the corner of 18th and Chestnut Streets during lunch hours. “You can imagine how much business we are doing there,” said Sayrie. We don’t doubt it, especially considering you can whip out a credit card to pay for that turkey burger and garden salad.

Famous Gourmet Meals on Wheels also offers fixin’s to those tromping around the east Loop. Just walk one block east of the Delmar Metrolink station, and you’ll find the white food mobile in the parking lot of Able Hardware at 5959 Delmar Blvd. The truck feeds lunch to The Loop crowd on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and dinner Tuesdays through Saturdays. What’s more, Sayrie’s gotten the OK to set up chairs and tables on the lot so you you can dine al fresco instead of in your Ford.

Is Meals on Wheels a deal on wheels? You bet. Items average around $5 to $6, with the most expensive selection being a grilled steak combo dinner for $9.50 that comes with two sides. The full menu is available online at famousgourmetmealscatering.com.

    Oooh! I haven’t heard of this!

    And actually, I have a related question – does anyone know who I would talk to, to get my own food truck up and running? I want to start a cupcake truck :)

    Great foodie minds of St. Louis, help me!
