Trucks on a Roll


GO Burger
The namesake burgers are good. The $6 Kobe hot dog—served on a buttery bun and topped with chili and cheese or apple slaw and jalapeño—is better.
Frites 'N' Meats
You’ll be tempted to order an “American Kobe” burger ($7.50), but the cheaper ($5.50) grass-fed Angus is plenty thick and juicy enough.
Steak Truck
47th St. at Park Ave.
Enough yummy kebabs ($2.50), cheesesteaks ($4), and chicken-and-rice platters ($4) for a month of lunches without duplication.
The Treat Truck
A rolling bakery full of cookies ($1 each) and brownies ($2.50 and up). The Mexican Chocolate is a real killer.
Big Gay Ice Cream Truck
The tasty soft-serve is really just a vehicle for exotic toppings like wasabi-pea powder, olive oil, and cardamom.
Yvonne Yvonne
71st St. and York Ave.
Consummate hostess Yvonne makes a perfect braised oxtail ($6.50) and other Jamaican staples like curried goat.
Schnitzel & Things
There’s more food with the platter (schnitzel and two sides, $10), but the sandwich ($8) keeps the focus on the chicken, pork, cod, or veal.
Patacon Pisao
202nd St. nr. Tenth Ave.
Order the “full” sandwich ($5.50), a gob of marinated beef, pork, and chicken and a square of fried cheese stuffed inside two crispy disks of fried plantain.
Mini Picanteria El Guayaquileño
37th St. at Sixth Ave. and Warren St. at Roosevelt Ave., Jackson Heights
Midtowners (at lunch) and Ecuadorans (at the nocturnal Queens location) go for the encebollado fish soup ($8).
World's Best Sandwich
20th St. and Broadway
The name may be an overstatement, but the chicken-salad sandwich ($4)—with more meat than mayo—certainly outperforms most delis’.
Berry Fro Yo
Union Square
A cheap fix of tangy, unsweetened yogurt, with toppings that range from the virtuous (granola) to the shameless (Lucky Charms–style marshmallows).
