Roxy’s is one of Boston’s most famous food trucks. The truck has been featured on national television food shows. Some fillings in the grilled cheese include brie, foie gras, chorizo, candied bacon and much more. The truck also offers a delicious side of fried pickles to go along with an amazing grilled cheese sandwich!


Boston Speed Dog’s accolades speak for itself. It was rated #1 Hot Dog in America by Wall Street Journal; billionaire Warren Buffet has reportedly eaten there — and raved about the experience; and not to mention it also made CBS Boston’s Best Hot Dogs list. Their famous homemade toppings include Speed’s mustard, relish, BBQ and most importantly Speed’s special sauce, which includes an atomic chili. Boston Speed Dog is definitely worth checking out.
