A-List: The tastiest food trucks in town

OPINION – Boasting everything from deep fried cheesecake to reuben style french fries, it’s safe to say that food trucks are on a roll in Southern Utah.

On a quest to find out the real deal about the wheels, I invited “No Filter Show” Co-hosts, Paul and Grady, to help me get the 411 on these tasty trucks.

We’ll tell you where to find them – and what to order when you get to the window!


Taste test with Ali, Paul, and Grady!

    I really enjoy your column Ali. Always interesting & new things to see around town but …..(and this is probably for Joyce)…Is it possible to have even ONE page that doesn’t link or somehow include these 2 jerks in a story or ad???…I know I know …don’t like it?…don’t read it….and I didn’t watch the video for that reason but even when clicking on the main page there’s an ad with their scroungy mugs . I find myself coming here less & less…..Enough is enough…

      LOL, gotta agree with that.

      I actually like some of their stuff. I think they need to do an expose on what little there is to here if you’re single, not Mormon and above the age of 18 but below the age of 75.

    All that is needed is a really good Chinese (fried rice) truck to complete the list. Lettuce wraps… yum yum!

    Waffle Bliss was at Peach Days last year. My husband and I both got a peanut butter and bananas waffle. The waffle was so sweet we decided to pass on the syrup. Then we realized the peanut butter was packed with added sugar. The butter also tasted sweetened (honey?). By the time we got home, half a mile away, we were both sick as dogs and spent the next hour in our bathrooms. If that happened to BOTH of us then it might be less of a novelty and more of a trend. If you are at all sugar sensitive I’d pass.
