When you paint your food truck hot pink and feature two buxom babes on it’s side you know you have a food truck with attitude. It’s none other than Southern California’s Baby’s Bad Ass Burgers. When an ex-New Yorker and a Californian get together you know it’s attitude time!
The hot pink food truck with an attitude serves gourmet burgers at street food prices, not to mention some menu items with suggestive names… especially if your mind runs a bit on the dirty side.
The “Original Beauty” comes with swiss, grilled onions, grilled mushrooms, and of course baby’s “special sauce”. For those of you in search of something more mature how about the “Cougar” burger, with aged beef, St. Andre Cheese and black truffles. For those with a more ethnic yearning the “mamacita” has pepperjack cheese, guacamole, tomato, grilled onions and japapenos.
Ok, you guessed it. If you are not in the mood for a hamburger you can opt for the “teeny weenies” mini Nathan’s Kosher hot dogs.
And the double entendres roll on if you have a hankering for chicken. It’s none other than the “Hot Chick” or “She’s Smokin!” with chicken breast, bbq sauce, cheddar and crispy onions.
When you see the big pink truck out of the corner of your eye, follow it, get a great burger, and some attitude!

Is there any better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than with a GreasyWiener?
The Greasy Wiener serves up New Jersey style hot dogs with West Coast flavors from a multimedia food truck that will entertain you with music, videos and short films. You and your friends may also find yourselves to be part of the broadcast!
Adam “Iggy” Dragotta and Eric Maczko hail from New Jersey and have created a really fun menu and food truck experience. Their New Jersey style deep fried hot dogs have the tell tale “snap” when you bite into them and have a great flavor.
Before we go any further I will let you know that I remember my elementary school education. When spelling the “i” comes before the “e”, at least in most cases! So when typing Greasy Wiener I’m pretty sure I am spelling it correctly. However, the lead menu item at The Greasy Wiener, is the “Greasy Weiner”, or at least that is how it is spelled on their menu. Regardless, it tastes good! It’s a deep fried hot dog topped with mustard, grilled onions, a pickle spear (much easier and neater to eat then relish) with a premium topping choice or bacon wrap, kraut, cheese sauce or chili.
“The Bomb” is a bacon wrapped dog, mustard, chili/cheese, grilled onions with the requisite pickle spear. This is clearly a crowd favorite. Plus it’s fun to say, “give me the bomb”. Maybe not so smart at the airport, but at the Greasy Wiener it is acceptable.
Also available are vegetarian and chicken apple sausages to meet your cravings.
Other truck favorites include a variety of “iggy’s” or “iggs” which are angus beef sliders served on Kings Hawaiian Rolls. The Bacon Bleu Igg’s are two Angus beef sliders topped with grilled onions, bleu cheese, bacon and the Greasy Wienter “special sauce.” Need I say more??
Don’t miss The Greasy Wiener food truck’s curly fries. Available “plain” or with chili, cheese sauce, garlic, Italian parsley, wing sauce, bacon, and/or cheese crumbles. The Buffalo Bleus Curly Fries feature wing sauce along with a bleu cheese crumble, tasty indeed!
All in all, The Greasy Wiener has a lot of great menu choices served up from a multimedia enabled truck. It’s almost like taking your lover to a fine dining restaurant that features strolling musicians. Ok, not really, but the Greasy Wiener will be just as enjoyable.

Nothing says comfort like a good old grilled cheese sandwich! Southern California’s Grilled Cheese Truck was born after their founders entered their Cheesy Mac & Rib Melt into LA’s 7th Annual Grilled Cheese Invitational. What was a weekend activity and a hobby became the impetus for the Grilled Cheese Truck.
At the festival the site of all the grilled cheese fanatics encouraged the Grilled Cheese Truck to not only offer “traditional” grilled cheese sandwiches, but also some amazingly great creations as well.
The “plain” grilled cheese is offered with American Cheese, Sharp Cheddar, Double Cream Brie or Gruyere. The Brie Melt is served on cranberry walnut bread with brie, pears and honey! Wow, add some smoked turkey if you like.
Vegetarians will be pleased with the Harvest Melt, roasted butternut squash with sauteed leeks, balsamic and agave syrups.
For dessert what more can you ask for than a Dessert Melt of gooey roasted banana puree, Nutella and marshmellow.
But, the pièce de résistance is the famous Cheesy Mac and Rib… macaroni and cheese with sharp cheddar, bbq pork and carmelized onions. This is a taste that will have you coming back time and time again.
The Grilled Cheese Truck is always on the move in Southern California, try it out, you’ll love it’s comfort.

It seems that the last few weeks we have been writing about anything and everything that is deep fried, breaded or contains lots of sugar. Granted they all those food items taste fabulous but every now and then we need something a little bit healthier!
The Greenz On Wheelz food truck certainly makes the perfect destination for those times when you feel like you “need a salad” or even when you just want a delicious wrap or melt.
The slogan “Lettuce Serve You” certainly is appropriate when presented with over 10 different salads to choose from. Each salad sounds better than the next.
I love a great BBQ chicken salad, and Greenz On Wheelz doesn’t disappoint with their chicken tossed with black beans, corn, jicama, tomato, cilantro, green onion, tortilla strips, jack cheese with BBQ and ranch dressings.
Two of the more popular salad choices seem to be the Chinese Chicken (with almonds, water chestnuts, green onion, crispy contons, sesame seeds and “a great “truck-made” salad dressing) and the Chicken Cobb (bacon, tomato, avocado, egg, blue cheese, and ranch dressing).
The “Italian” salad is something special with it’s combination of proscuitto, mortadella, salami, tomato, pepperoncini, garbanzo beans and provolone cheese with balsamic vinaigrette.
Non meat-eaters will appreciate the Caesar Salad and the Veggie Salad (tomato, cucumber, carrots, avocado, red onion, mushroom, bell pepper, black olives, garbanzo beans with either balsamic or lemon viaigrette dressing.
All of the salads can be also made as a wrap! Plus Greenz On Wheelz serves up some great “melts” served on their paremsan butter spread sourdough bread. Choice from tuna, turkey, roast beef, italian or veggie melts.
If you must have fried foods when ordering from Greenz On Wheelz their fresh cut potato wedges are pretty spectacular!
I’m going to check with Greenz On Wheelz to see if they can make me one of my favorites, The Wedge Salad! A wedge of iceberg lettuce, topped with chopped eggs, crumbled bacon, diced red onion, chopped tomatoes, and chunky bleu cheese dressing! Ahhh, heaven!
Hat’s off to Greenz On Wheelz for being Southern California’s salad food truck and more! Don’t miss it!
