Lombard, Il: Food Truck Fridays in September

By Contributor  |  National University


Great eats are coming to National University’s campus to help kick off fall trimester! Each Friday in September, a different food truck will offer lunchtime fare, parking on the drive between Janse Hall and the LRC near Lake Janse.

Here are the trucks that will be rolling in:

Friday, Sept. 5 (11am – 2pm) – Best Trucking BBQ
Try BBQ pulled chicken or pork, cilantro-lime cole slaw and pepper-jack mac and cheese topped off with a bacon chocolate brownie!

Friday, Sept. 12 (11am – 1pm) – Pizza Via
No frozen pizza here! This is a real wood-fired brick oven on wheels serving hand-crafted pizzas, soup, salad and dessert.

Friday, Sept. 19 (11:30am -1:30pm) – Toasty Cheese
Build your own or choose from a variety of grilled cheese sandwiches with optional veggies, meat, spreads and sauces. Or, go for salad and gourmet fries.

Friday, Sept. 26 (11am – 1pm) – The Vegan Food Truck
Meatless wonders like curry chickpeas and greens, gluten-free mac and cheese, seitan rib tips on pita, soy buffalo chik’n pita, pecan pie and more!

Each food truck offers vegetarian options as well as gluten-free options (note: for those sensitive to gluten, food is prepared in equipment that is also used to prepare items containing gluten).

Students, faculty and staff are invited to come out and enjoy great food, rain or shine!

If “Food Truck Fridays” prove to be popular this September at NUHS, we’ll schedule more trucks for the future.
