Paddy Wagon (1.0 – The Early Years)

9 Jul

Cuisine: Burgers & Wraps, mostly
Twitter: @PaddyWagonFood

Recently, we’ve encountered burgers stuffed with foie gras, burgers made with any of a number of different wild game meats, and burgers comprised entirely of lobster flesh and scallop puree. Clearly, the humble hamburger has been putting on the cocktail gown quite a bit lately, and more often than not it wears it surprisingly well.

But sometimes, dammitall, I just want a good, straightforward, no BS hamburger. Maybe a little bacon if we’re “feeling creative”, and, of course the Kraft single is a must.

This is where Paddy Wagon comes in. Parked at the BP station near Neil & Goodale, they’re putting out a solid menu of comfort food burger favorites such as the ‘Bacon the Law Burger’:

This was a big, satisfying sandwich – a 1/2 pound angus beef patty topped with bacon, sauteed mushrooms, peppers, onions, and a slice of the aforementioned cheese. Home fried potato chips (a bit on the salty side on our visit) and a parsley garnish round it out.

All for a scant $5.00.

Paddy Wagon also serves wraps, grilled cheese, and a few desserts, and is open Mon-Fri, 11am – 10pm. They may occasionally be absent on weekends if they’re working a festival or the like. Service was quick, operators are very friendly, and the hoosegow-themed truck provides plenty of entertainment while you wait.

    I really got cheated. I got a stingy sized grilled cheese sandwich with no sides for 4-5 dollars. I had to wait 20 minutes. It could be that they were out of product, but they still charged me full price. I will skip this particular truck.

    I can’t comment on the quality of food, because i never received it. I ordered, waited for 30 minutes never to get my order. Everyone that ordered after me did. Highly annoyed, and won’t be attempting to order from this truck again for a while.
