Let's start this review by naming the things that we cherish the most. This will give y'all an idea of how obsessed we are with Papi Queso.
Things we love:
- Beyonce/Papi Queso (we honestly couldn't decide between the two. It's that serious.)
After falling in love with Papi Queso, we decided to follow the truck around Charlotte to get grilled cheese at least once a week (they tweet their location daily here). Our obsession has escalated to the point where the lady that takes orders knows us by face (it's embarrassing). We're about one grilled cheese pop up away from being certified stalkers.
The menu changes seasonally, and be sure to ask what is on their hidden menu for the day! As if fire grilled cheese wasn't enough, the bread pudding is AMAZING and the basil lemonade?!?! JESUS.
Niks' Picks - I have so many favorites that it pains me to pick just one, but I'm rolling with the Spanish Ham & Cheese (Sorry Buffalo Chicken and Johnny Pastrami). It has manchego cheese, Jamon Serrano, P'Tit basque, mahon, roasted garlic and a honey quince marmalade. It takes me back to summer 2014, coolin' with my baby sis in Valencia. All I need is a glass of Cava...or three.
Fox's Picks - GET THE APPLE, CHEDDAR, BACON. You won't regret it, I promise. It comes with NC Pink lady apples, aged white cheddar, applewood smoked bacon, dijon and honey. I usually add smoked tomatoes to mine for a little extra flavor. It is generally only available during the summer time :(. I'm positive the ABC is what cheesy heaven tastes like. Fire...all fire.
Price: $5 - $15 (adding on bacon, tomatoes, with chips, and a drink can rack up, ya'll!)
Vibes: It's a food truck and outside, you'll smell like outside. Be prepared to eat standing up or in your car but you'll be satisfied!
