Every menu item consists of at least one piece of bacon, and prices range from $1.00 to $10.00 (plus tax) depending on what you choose.
The Bacon Truck is serving up lunch favorites like the Turkey Avo, made up of truck-roasted turkey breast, bacon, beefsteak tomatoes, romaine lettuce and chimichurri aioli, to its unique take on a Cuban sandwich with bacon, braised pork shoulder, muenster cheese,truck-made garlic pickles and spicy mustard.
