Staff Pick: Best Meal on Wheels 

Staff Pick

In the past few years, seeing a food truck parked outside an office building on a weekday has become the norm, not a novelty. The proliferation of mobile eateries has been a pleasant trend, with many of them making eats you might not expect.

If you see a pair of giant grinning sugar skulls roll up, smile—it's Mad Mac ( and its gourmet macaroni and cheese. An automatic win for dishing up the perfect comfort food, Mad Mac gets major bonus points for the bonuses: toppings of sweet corn and bacon; pulled pork and barbecue sauce; buffalo chicken, Frank's' Red Hot and ranch. Like it says on the truck: It's "macaroni to die for."

From the same owners comes Bowld Over (, where rice or mashed potatoes are covered with the likes of chicken, corn and cheese; Cuban pork and black beans; or seasonal veggies. Then there's the mouthwatering Urban Smoke (, with its tender pork ribs, brisket and homemade sides; sweet Nosh and Noms (, the '50s Fiber Stream trailer hauling gourmet nachos and hot fresh donuts; Fresh Betty Spaghetti ( cruising around with traditional terrific pasta, sauce and salad; and The Rusty Dog (, frying up corn dogs and donuts, which we loved at first bite.
