I heard the food truck food was delicious and they were very efficient on getting people through the line. Thank you! I was glad to I was able to talk to the food truck driver prior to the event to ensure the food that was coming and that there would be options. I started to wonder if the whole process of finding the truck was a scam.. so glad I was able to connect with a person to ask questions. Everyone indicated it was very good and our event was a success! Thank you! Pam Hoffdahl Neogen Oakdale, MN
