SWAT Food Truck
When this tactical unit rolls into the neighborhood, somebody�s sure to get busted�with sauce on their shirt! The Sandwiches With A Twist (SWAT) team is bent on serving up meaty justice with taste-splosions that will leave you stunned and possibly face down with your hands behind your head. Their well-trained Philly cheesesteak takes the point, but the Canadian Maple smoked back bacon on a brioche and pulled wiener are close on its heels.
