Monday Munchies: MeatHead

UPDATE: THIS FOOD TRUCK IS NOW RETIRED.

This week's Monday Munchie is another meat food truck, from the creators of the ever popular Sauca: MeatHead. Unlike last week's PorcMobile, there was no mystery here with what we were getting ourselves into: four sandwiches centered around meat slathered in sauce. These are the moments I admit I am an unabashed carnivore.
Grabbing some coworkers, we headed out and I ordered the truck's eponymous sandwich, a sub with the following description: "a trio of juicy steak, pork, and chicken piled high and covered with creamy cole slaw, caramelized onions, triple cheese sauce and a touch of all three of our sauces." Talk about a heart attack, right?

With so much promise, I expected something great. Instead, what I got was a messy sandwich with meat that was just, well, chewy. And not as succulent as had been promised. The sauce was almost a distraction rather than a blessing. And most of all, it just felt like something I could get at any number of college delivery places. So, at best, satisfactory.

What it did leave me with was a very sluggish feeling for the rest of the day.

Taste Test:
2 Forks (out of 5)
Perfect for: Meat overload
