Ahhh, the LOVE

Brandon and Charles paid us a visit from VANYLA... & you gotta check out their blog...period.  Filled with amazing content and interesting articles, this site is a must read. The photography is amazing, and the blog post about The Grillery, well (blush) is pretty great too!

Thanks for the love, y'all.

Settling In

One month down....HOLY SMOKES!  Sometimes Travis and I look at each other like "what the hell did we get ourselves into?"  Starting a new cart, in the fall, in Portland, as first timers is TOUGH.  But we're gettin' it...(and we're still having a blast!)

Our customers come in all shapes and sizes.  

 REPPIN' Portland to the fullest, so we had to take a pic.
(His heart is in NE, as you can see)

He obliged, obviously.

That's the thing about our cart business so far... we literally LOVE all the people who come through and try our food.  From our friends and family who stop by (thank you!), to our new friends at the hospital and Red Cross, to the "locals" who reside in NE...y'all are awesome!  We've really enjoyed chatting with our customers and getting to know them. 

We love our four legged friends too!


People have said that our food gets better every time they come, so that means we're doing something right.  Travis has concocted all sorts of new sauces.  Next time you come for lunch, don't be afraid to try the chipotle ketchup, garlic aioli, sweet BBQ, or our SECRET Grill Sauce...you won't be disappointed!

Our hours have changed a bit too.  We are currently open Monday-Friday 11-7 and Saturday 12-5.

Hope to see you soon!

So sorry about the MAJOR delay in postings...I've been eating (literally), sleeping (rarely) and LIVING food cart life for the last month, so I've been slacking... forgive me?

We did more pickling!

...because our first round was a HIT!

You know we gotta add some SPICE.

They look beautiful!

Third week down and we are still learning every day!  We have gotten some great advice and feedback from our friends, family, customers...annnnddd...our first FOOD CRITIC!  Check it out here...

I think overall it's a great first review...Aaron was super nice and gave us honest feedback, which we appreciate.  We have been trying to perfect our fries (because we like 'em crispy too!), so hopefully next time he comes back, we'll get a higher rating!  Not too shabby for week 3 though.

Sometimes when it's slow, we get our color on...

Nana and John

And, Adam.

As always, we love the support from everyone and appreciate y'all stopping by the cart!  Be sure to LIKE us on facebook!!
