Focus on Takeout – Beefy Buns (Food Truck)

Chad’s neighborhood has continued its series of food trucks during the stay-at-home period, with the caveat that all of the scheduled food trucks must offer online ordering. During this period, many food trucks have begun using, available on a web browser and as a handy downloadable app. Streetfoodfinder allows for online ordering, payment, tipping, and pickup scheduling.

The latest food truck to come through the neighborhood was Beefy Buns, a sandwich truck offering reubens, cheesesteaks, meatball hoagies and other classic sandwiches.

Chad ordered a reuben, a blackened chicken sandwich, pan fried garlic parm potatoes and pan seared Brussels sprouts. The reuben was a little skimpy on the corned beef, but otherwise a solid, serviceable sandwich on very tasty swirled rye.

The blackened chicken sandwich, though was a bargain at $8, with a huge chicken breast, provolone, garlic aioli and arugula on a nicely toasted ciabatta bun. The Brussels sprouts were quite good.

Online ordering was simple, and Beefy Buns hit the target pickup time perfectly. People in the parking lot were respectful of distances, even with some walkup business. All in all, a very nice change of pace at a reasonable price. — CW
