Cafe De Wheels

Today at lunch me and two co-workers embarked on a journey to try a new place to eat downtown called Senor Roy's, but after not being able to find it because it was not where it said it would be, we settled for Cafe de Wheels. Both of these places are just trucks that move from place to place downtown and they post on their sites or on twitter or facebook, where they will be at any given time of day. We were very disappointed that Senor Roy decided to not show up today, we were all craving some tacos.

So we got to Cafe de Wheels and the first thing I notice is that it is slim pickings. They obviously can't have much to choose from since it is a pretty small truck. I just got the typical cheeseburger and fries. I was shocked that the side of fries cost $2 and the burger was $5. I think it would have been better priced for both for a total of $5. The burger was OK, it came on a bun that was a bit different and not so much in a good way. The fries came in a small cup, which is why I don't think they should have been so expensive even though they were good. It took them over 20 minutes to make our food, mine of course being the last one done, they blamed it on the fries.

All in all it was a decent meal and I am definitely full, but I won't be going back there because I could spend $7 on a much better meal downtown. I would not recommend it to anyone, especially for the burger. If I wanted to pay that much for a burger, I'd go to Paula's Cafe for there 7 minute burger and then grab slice of their homemade carrot cake to bring home to Joanna.

  1. Corey, I do think you should give this place another try. I personally love their chicken sandwhich. It's crispy and has a nice spice to it and NO mustard.Cafe de wheels is also working on removing the kinks, but obviously that takes time. Their menu is in "slim pickings" due to the newness and they are actually trying out new things to sell. Maybe YOU could give a suggestion.

    Also, a "cheese" burger and fries at paula's is the same price and is good but could better.
    theyre fries weren't as good "for the price" either.

  2. Thanks Luca. I will definitely go back to try the chicken sandwich. I appreciate your suggestion an am glad you recommended me yor favorite item. You set the bar high so it better be good! : D

    I still have to say that paulas burger was much better, but I do agree about the fries.

    Thanks again and I will let you know how it is!

  3. You're welcome.
    yeah, Paula's burger is quite tasty, I do have to agree.

    Also, don't hesitate to give a suggestion. I know that if someone wasn't completely happy with what they received, and that they made a legitimate suggestion, I'd give it a try.

    I do wish they used shadeau buns, who knows though. Things do change.

  4. They do use shadeau buns....... Wheat buns made just for them... I asked.
