Grilled Cheese Food Truck?
updated: Jul 06, 2014, 6:47 PM

By Edhat Subscriber

On June 29 a toasted-cheese-sandwich food truck was parked on Cabrillo near the fountain. The food was outstanding.  Does anybody know anything about this business? Local or not, for example.

Soooooo much more than just a basic grilled cheese sandwich I bet... I'm sure they use Gourmet cheese and good quality bread and then what you put inside the sandwich... Yumm... I would love to try this one out

Dear EdHat subscriber, next time try to post closer to the event. I don't think you saw the Grilled Cheese Truck in Santa Barbara on the 29th. I think you saw it there on the 28th. It was there for the Skater Music Fest.

The Grilled Cheese Truck has been around a while in Los Angeles and they have expanded their operations. They have a general Twitter account and truck-specific Twitter accounts.

197: So you never buy anything prepared that you can make yourself? If you are out & about and get hungry, you always rush home to cook something? What if you're in a different town than the one you live in? Do you never eat out unless it's something you don't have the skill to prepare yourself? I'm not calling you a grumpy spoil-sport, but... oh wait... yes i am.

I'm a big fan of the food trucks that have popped up around town: Georgia Smokehouse, The Burger Bus. I buy lunch from them whenever I spot them.
What other ones have you enjoyed?

Great! I hope you're happy now. Now I want a grilled cheese sandwich! Oh! Btw, I can, and do, make them for myself at home, but somehow I have a taste for other's cooking once in awhile.

263: I've had that sandwich. It's AWESOME.

I am so, so happy they have a truck roaming SB and Ventura, now!

To those of you wondering who, what, where, when, Google "Grilled Cheese Truck". They have a website and Twitter accounts. You can find out where they are!

There is a long stretch of 15 minute parking on De la Guerra Plaza (between City Hall and the News Press) that COULD also be reserved for food trucks during a long lunch time.... just a thought. Helene? Dale? anyone?

Yes, it was there for the Skaters Point Music Show and will be coming back for the July 19th date.

This will be one of the strongest entertainment line ups for the summer. Come for the food and stay for the show. Beach chairs, blankets and umbrellas are welcome.

The event and music is produced by Roger Perry Entertainment and The New Noise Music Foundation.

The line up can be found at: www.newnoisesb.org

The truck comes out of Ventura County! Yes it is Rocking Good and fits the music!

Jeez, you got me going. Guess who's having grilled cheese very soon. And bacon lettuce and tomato sandwiches, too.... 'tis the season.

I had a grilled cheese sandwich at Renaud's recently. I have to say it was the best grilled cheese I ever had. Heaven!

Grilled brie and apple. Fresco's mushroom & brie. Max's brie & spinach omelette (still can't believe I never came up with that or had one before I did there! In the 90's I think. they have fantastic meaty real corned beef hash.) Short rib & grilled cheese - I've never tried but want to.


They don't seem to have any SB listings on their Ventura/SB tab. I don't do Twitter or FB.

You don't need to have an account to see their Twitter listings. Just go to the page and see what's on there.

I Drove out to try it on Fairview today. Even tho there are 4 people working inside the truck you will still have to wait more than a half hour standing in the sun & on black asphalt. The "basic" grilled cheese with sharp cheddar was just okay and smallish, not particularly sharp & too dry. If you're going to go to the trouble of trying one then get one of the specialty ones or add sides to the basic one. Otherwise you will be disappointed.

maybe twitter isn't needed, but their website has no SB locations under the "Ventura/SB" tab.
