In the past few years, seeing a food truck parked outside an office building on a weekday has become the norm, not a novelty. The proliferation of mobile eateries has been a pleasant trend, with many of them making eats you might not expect.
If you see a pair of giant grinning sugar skulls roll up, smile—it's Mad Mac (facebook.com/madmactruck) and its gourmet macaroni and cheese. An automatic win for dishing up the perfect comfort food, Mad Mac gets major bonus points for the bonuses: toppings of sweet corn and bacon; pulled pork and barbecue sauce; buffalo chicken, Frank's' Red Hot and ranch. Like it says on the truck: It's "macaroni to die for."
From the same owners comes Bowld Over (facebook.com/Bowld-Over), where rice or mashed potatoes are covered with the likes of chicken, corn and cheese; Cuban pork and black beans; or seasonal veggies. Then there's the mouthwatering Urban Smoke (facebook.com/urbansmokeboise), with its tender pork ribs, brisket and homemade sides; sweet Nosh and Noms (facebook.com/noshnnoms), the '50s Fiber Stream trailer hauling gourmet nachos and hot fresh donuts; Fresh Betty Spaghetti (facebook.com/FreshBetty) cruising around with traditional terrific pasta, sauce and salad; and The Rusty Dog (facebook.com/therustydogidaho), frying up corn dogs and donuts, which we loved at first bite.
