I received my MSW from Rutgers in 1995 and would not have survived the tough schedule of full time work load and graduate school without the service of these lunch wagons. Fond memories

THE source for giant "Fat" sandwiches that have every greasy ingredient under the sun, in tons of permutations. Not to be missed if you visit Rutgers. Open until 2am.

Famous fat sandwiches. High in calories, haven't touched one in years, but a great thing to eat after the bars lol. Its something you have to try, but I wouldn't recommend eating it frequently unless you're trying to gain those pounds.
