Recess Food Truck - Red Light Sandwich
The Red Light sandwich was delicious and came with grilled vegetarian turkey, caramelized onions, melted Havarti, jalapenos and spicy Recess sauce on buttery and lightly toasted sourdough bread.

Recess Food Truck - Red Light Sandwich
The grilled vegetarian turkey was amazing. The meatless turkey was moist, full of flavor and tasted just like real turkey. The spicy Recess sauce and jalapenos added a nice little kick to the sandwich which we really liked. For a not-so-spicy option you can choose the Green Light sandwich (rather than Red Light), which replaces the jalapenos and spicy Recess sauce with garlicky aioli.

Recess Food Truck - Exchange Student Salad
The Exchange Student salad was piled high with fresh and crisp veggies – The salad was gourmet and delicious. It came with cool cucumber, Kalamata olives, tomatoes, sliced red onion, and crumbled feta on a bed of organic spring mix, sprinkled with seasoned croutons. On the side was a delicious creamy Greek dressing. There’s also a cool option on the menu to build your own salad.

Recess Food Truck - The Bully Burger
The Bully Burger was also delicious. It came with a 1/3lb grass-fed patty, top it with applewood smoked bacon, slather on spicy BBQ sauce, grilled onions and cheddar. The beef juicy and cooked to perfection (pink throughout).

Recess Food Truck - AP Tots
The AP Tots were incredible! The AP tots were a crisp golden brown on the outside but moist and super juicy on the inside. The tots were cooked to perfection with truffle oil and topped with tasty feta cheese.

Recess Food Truck - Remedial Tots
The Remedial Tots were also mind-blowing! These tots were seasoned with zesty crispy bacon-salt and topped with cheddar cheese and Recess signature sauce. The tots were mouth-watering, crisp on the outside and were bursting with flavor with each bite.

Recess Food Truck - Recess Shirley Temple
The Recess Shirley Temple ($1.80) was spot on and an excellent addition to our meal. It was made from the perfect blend of Boylan’s Ginger Ale and Boylan’s Black Cherry soda – It was crisp and refreshing with a twist of sweetness.
