Groovy Guys Fries Food Truck

“Love, peace and fry grease.” I’ll second that! That’s what is says on the side of the Groovy Guys Fries food truck here in Indianapolis. Before I tell you just how great the fries are, I have some advice on where to stand after the nice folks on the truck take your order. Near the back. In the picture below, it’d be to the far left. Sadly, the guy in the photo isn’t aware of this. But then if I’d told him I wouldn’t have been able to stand there, so you gotta do what you gotta do.

Oh the aroma…

Why stand at the back of the truck? Well, because it smells WONDERFUL! Natural, fresh cut fries getting all happy in the truck, the aroma wafts out the back and you’ll just want to stand there and close your eyes and enjoy.

My first time at Groovy Guys Fries I ordered the steak and cheese fries. Perfectly seasoned and cooked fries topped with seasoned beef, cheese and a bit of A-1 sauce. The meat was tender and tasty, but the fries are the star.

Fries, fries and more fries…

The next time I ordered the taco fries. These are winners for sure. Again, perfectly seasoned and cooked fries, topped with taco-seasoned tender ground beef, salsa, cheese sauce and a bit of sour cream. These fries get better as you go because all of the topping happiness sinks to the bottom of the container. Everything gets all gooey and yummy and mixed together.

I’ve read where some folks aren’t thrilled that some of the fry toppings are canned or jarred. I’m not really that hung up on that. Groovy Guys is a food truck with a friendly crew that cranks out really good fries that taste fantastic. I consider them a treat to eat, and I’d go back again. And again.

Mac Genie Food Truck

Sadly, it appears that Mac Genie has closed it’s doors. I’m really going to miss their great service and of course, the mac and cheese. ~ Mike

I actually dreamed about mac-and-cheese the other night. That’s because I knew that Anita was going to swing by the Mac Genie food truck near her work the next day and pick up some Genie Mac. Mac-and-cheese from Mac Genie will make you dream about it again and again.

Mac Genie Food TruckI’ve had nothing but delicious goodness from the Mac Genie truck. They’re super-friendly folk with super-yummy food. You’ll find that same friendliness and good food at just about all of the food trucks around Indianapolis. We’re lucky to have so many!

Mac Genie Food TruckThe Genie Mac is topped with breadcrumbs, sour cream, and chives. And bacon. It’s just downright pretty and tastes even better than it looks, which is saying a lot.

Mac Genie Food TruckThe Buffalo Mac is crazy good. It combines two of my favorite things: creamy good mac and Buffalo chicken. Not hot, just spicy good. Breadcrumbs and cool Ranch top it off.

Mac Genie Food TruckThe Mac Genie truck is out and about Indianapolis, and well worth the visit! The fine food and folk rate this truck high on the ‘Mater Rater.

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.

Serendipity Food Truck

The Serendipity food truck is another one of my favorite Indianapolis-area food trucks. Like many of the trucks here, Serendipity offers really great food with really pleasant service.

The main items on the Serendipity menu are arranged by geographical region: The North East (crab cake sliders), South East (Cuban sandwich), Mid West (rotating grilled cheese), North West (elk sliders), and South West (mole tacos). Now, here’s where I have to admit I’ve only had the North East. I so love their crab cakes that I have to order them.Serendipity Food TruckEach and every time (and I’ve been there several times). The toppings are fresh, the buns are fresh, and the red pepper aioli is perfect with the crab. The cakes are very lightly fried. You get two in an order. You’ll want eight.

Serendipity Food TruckA friend of mine recently stopped by Serendipity and had the Mid West. The evening he was there the Mid West was a grilled spinach and artichoke cheese sandwich. I liked the idea so much that I made my own version (that I’ll post tomorrow). Oh, and don’t forget that you can add a mini taco or elk slider for just a few bucks more! Serendipity Food TruckI’ve spent time watching the folks on the truck do their thing (but not like stalking in a creepy way), from taking orders to cooking to serving, and they do it all right. So, I gave them the highest marks on the ‘Mater Rater. 'Mater Rater Restaurant Score 5-5-5-5
