Gotta get a fat sandwich in New Brunswick! Basically any type of your favorite fried fare on a roll. My favorite is the Fat Mojo: chicken fingers, mozzarella sticks, french fries, and honey mustard. Fantastic!

There's something for everyone!! But you can never go wrong wih a chicken gyro. Reasonably priced, and for the most part friendly!

Good college food. Yes it is greasy. Yes it is absurdly unhealthy, but the sandwiches are not bad at all. A better option then subway, and around the same price. I usually get the chicken parm or the chicken cheese steak, not a fan of the french fries in my sandwich. The onion rings are decent, not great. The grilled... More

This is one of those places that is so good to you it might kill you. No one will accuse these trucks of adding years to one's life, but eating here really does add life to one's years. I try to eat healthy, so I come here after reaching various goals or milestones. I've never tried the sandwich eating contest,... More

For a truck, the sandwich bread is surprisingly fresh and the fries are high quality, airy and crunchy. I had the Fat Elvis. It contains Fries, Mozerella Sticks, Gyro and White Sauce. I ended up asking for Marinara Sauce (They gave it to me for free) and removing the fries after the first few bites (Due the health reasons -... More

This is a must visit if you are in the area. I had the Fat Darrell and it was one of the best sandwiches I have ever eaten. If only they made these sandwiches where I live.... Not bad at $6 and you get a good amount of food. I look forward to having another sandwich next time I visit!

Gotta love Grease Trucks, gigantic "Fat" everything sandwiches are always a fun challenge. Last time I was there, rule was if you create a sandwich and eat 2 within a certain time (45minutes, I think?) they will list your sandwich on the truck and put your picture up. They were featured on TV too. If you're in the Rudgers area... More

This place brings back memories of college. Nothing beats going to grease trucks on a summer night and you have random people yelling and screaming to try their version of a fat cat. The number of options you have are endless. The food is so bad for you, but it hits the spot after a long night of hanging out... More

Yes they may be fattening, artery clogging, over indulgent, over stuffed sandwhiches but they are also so delicious and satisfying! The stick everything is a sub roll from fries to chicken fingers to mozzarella sticks to cheesesteak and anything else you could probably imagine! And they are only like 5$! Everything is ok in moderation. I lived about 20 minutes... More

Typically filled with college kids at any time of the day or night. Open very late till about 3 in the morning and open for lunch the next day. I have seen families go here during the day but after dark this area is bombarded with college kids, which makes for an interesting environment. If you go to Rutgers or... More
