One of my favorite food trucks in Indy isn’t a food truck. It’s a little wagon. Er, wagen. Der Pretzel Wagen. You can smell the wonderful pretzel bread as you get closer and closer. Warm, soft, salty… Perfect as buns for sandwiches, and of course, perfect as a pretzel.
I also recommend the Skywalker, The Big Helga, and the Das Fritz. If you’re into horseradish, they have several other sandwiches that are right up your alley. Me, I’m not so much the horseradish guy, but like I was with cilantro years ago, I’m working on it and I’m sure I’ll come to love it too.
You have to grab a pretzel from Der Pretzel Wagen. You can get one with a sandwich (part of the Uber Combo deal), or grab one by itself. They’re soooo good. Available in cinnamoned or salted. Do like I do and grab extras to take home. Pop them in the oven for a few minutes to get them all warm and soft, and then enjoy! Der Pretzel Wagen also inspired me to make pretzel grilled bacon and cheese sandwiches.
Pretzels. Good. And rated high on the ‘Mater Rater. And make sure to tell the nice folks in the wagen Hi!
I love my Indianapolis food trucks. Sometimes they come and go, sometimes they turn into brick-and-mortar restaurants, sometimes their names change, and sometimes they last and last, serving up good food every time.
