Jersey City might be small in size but it's big in feel! Home to nearly three hundred thousand residents and even more workers, this mini metropolis across the Hudson swells on weekdays to accommodate thousands of private and public sector jobs. Public transportation options are copious here and forty percent of the local population doesn't own a car. Many prominent businesses call Jersey City home: the proximity to NYC is second to none and rent is a bit cheaper. In this fast moving diverse community lunch on the go has always been a necessity. The Jersey City food truck scene here evolved from that need, but nowadays you can find quality options morning, noon and night. Plenty of authentic international fare here too, some of the best food trucks are: the Jerkin Chicken truck which has that real Jamaican jerk seasoning and premium side dishes too, and Casa Cubana which has a huge menu of amazing Cuban plates and sandwiches. If you've never tried Ropa Vieja or Lechon (Cuban Roast Pork) it's time. A plethora of great food truck choices await you here in JC!

Food was really good but I feel like communication with the manager can use improvement. I had to reach out the night before to confirm when they'd be arriving to set up and there was miscommunication regarding the dessert option that I didn't find out until the day of the event. The order should have included an entrée, side, dessert and drink but there was no dessert served day of. They were aware that I had inquired about the dessert and specifically mentioned what we wanted served. I'm not sure where the misunderstanding happened, but I feel they should have reach out to confirm the menu options if they were unsure/unable to serve the dessert option. Again, the food was great and the staff was friendly but for how much was paid there should have been better communication.

The tots were nice and salty and crispy. The meat was cooked well, a tad fatty here and there but super yummy. The cheese was super tasty and melted nicely on the meat. Loved loved loved! I wish there was some sort of spice or sauce for the sandwich/dipping
