Ruthie’s Food Trucks: The Most Innovative Spins on Grilled Cheese

The Boss.

Bread. Butter. Cheese. These three simple ingredients lend themselves to a treasured American meal. Not to mention the nostalgia.

Ruthie’s Food Trucks has several food trucks in Dallas-Fort Worth that focus on the culinary odyssey of gourmet grilled cheese.

First on the food truck scene four years ago, Ruthie’s helped pioneer the DFW food truck landscape. When folks see one of Ruthie’s signature trucks heading down the highway, excitement ensues. Nostalgia sets in, just like spying the ice cream man and hearing the ice cream truck music in their neighborhood.

So what makes Ruthie’s sandwiches gourmet? They are made with a wide variety of cheeses, meats, veggies, and sauces to add to the scrumptiousness of a traditional grilled cheese.

Perhaps the most famous, most hearty, and “two hands required” is The Boss. D Magazine touted this sandwich as “2013’s D Magazine Top 10 Dishes.” Piled high between two pieces of sourdough bread, barbecue brisket and sharp cheddar unite for culinary happiness in your mouth.

And the Ruthie’s team certainly didn’t stop there with their innovative spins on the everyday grilled cheese. The Turkey Trot is another fan favorite that includes their secret “slob sauce.” Folks have been trying to get their hands on this recipe for years. But the Ruthie’s culinary team has managed to keep it under lock and key. In addition to the slob sauce, turkey, bacon, and cheddar cheese come together for the Turkey Trot on sourdough bread.

So if you’re looking for a fun, innovative spin on the traditional grilled cheese, look no further than Ruthie’s Food Trucks.

If The Boss and Turkey Trot aren’t causing hunger pains in your stomach yet, imagine chicken, mozzarella, grilled tomatoes, and pesto on whole grain wheat. This ingredient collaboration is called the Italian Hippy. Many folks opt for this one if they are looking for a bit of a lighter option. Well, as light as you can go with grilled cheese anyway.

The Ruthie’s team is often cooking up new creations in the kitchen, surprising and delighting its patrons with additional items on their menu. The latest concoction that is causing quite a stir is The S.A.S.S. Melted together is spinach artichoke dip, Havarti cheese, bacon, and tomatoes on sourdough bread.

So if you’re looking for a fun, innovative spin on the traditional grilled cheese, look no further than Ruthie’s Food Trucks. Enjoy the sandwiches with two hands, and good luck finding out the secret ingredients of their slob sauce!
