Urban Spoon Reviews

The people have spoken, and thanks for speaking so kindly about us here at Mom’s! Directly from the reviews on Urban Spoon, here is what the people are saying…..although we have edited a few of the glaring typos and spelling mistakes. You’ll get the idea.

by i_say_yes:  AMAZING. I would stand in the pouring rain to get a grilled cheese sandwich and cup of tomato soup from mom’s truck. So good. Wish it was parked outside my house…

by Crispy: Amazing grilled cheese, especially the meatloaf sandwich. Favorite Vancouver food cart!

by CoutureChef: This place is the diamond of quick tasty food. First you are greeted by a very friendly lady who takes you order, the team seems to be working hard but the result is great, the grilled cheese are the best and the soup shot was an amazing idea, big line up at midday to 1 but worth it.

by Noel: Best grilled cheese sandwich I’ve ever had….hands down.

by Jeeven: Great service! Even better food! This is THE BEST grilled cheese sandwich I’ve ever tried. It was nice and crispy and it warms you up. This is the definition of comfort food. The fresh bread makes a huge difference and the Pop Shoppe pop compliments the sandwich perfectly. I’m definitely coming back here!

by Mr.Temple: Outstanding food, wonderfully personal and friendly service, and owned and operated by a local Mom who really does care about feeding you and making you happy. What more could you want from a food truck? I have a hard time picking favourites, but I’m a sucker for the havarti, bacon, and sliced pickles on whole grain. Add a cup of the amazing chili, and you can’t help but feel like you’ve been spoiled. Visit again, and Mom will get to you know, she is a pistol, super fun and friendly. Come hungry, leave with a full belly and a big smile.

by Jessica: Today was my first visit to Mom’s Grilled Cheese Truck. and it certainly won’t be my last! I had a grilled cheese with bacon, onions, pepper jack and tomatoes on marble rye… Good lord it was delicious! Very friendly environment to be in while waiting too… Very open and friendly staff that make you feel like they genuinely appreciate your business. Can’t wait to go again!

by Aakash Agarwala: Awesome. Sweetest people. Delicious food.

by Alex: Food: 10/10. This is a unique idea and tastes great. Nothing like a grilled cheese on sough dough with cheddar and bacon. I highly recommend it. I go here at least once a week and I live 2 hours away. It’s worth every minute of travel. Customer Service: 10/10 The Employees are great. They joke around and interact with you. Half of your experience is just talking to them. If you have not been yet to mom’s grilled cheese truck then you are missing out.

by Veronica: Mom’s grill cheese truck is awesome! Big portions of delicious grill cheese. I had the special of the day which was Brie with turkey on cranberry bread. Also had a sample of homemade chillie which was hearty and yummy. Come hungry! Cindy is absolutely lovely and puts homemade goodness into everything she makes!

Benefits of Sunshine & Grilled Cheese

With our local Vancouver weather forecast looking sunny for the next three days, you’ve got to break out of your office, home or hotel and get over to Mom’s Grilled Cheese Truck. Getting out to Mom’s will not only be a taste sensation on your lunch break, but also will deliver some great health benefits!

The ultraviolet rays in sunshine act as a natural antiseptic. These rays can kill viruses, bacteria, molds, yeasts, fungi, and mites in air, water, and on different surfaces including your skin. Yum, if that doesn’t get you thinking about lunch, what will?

Joking aside, sunshine actually stimulates your appetite and improves your digestion, elimination, and metabolism. Sunshine encourages healthy circulation. It also stimulates the production of more red blood cells which increases the amount of oxygen in your blood. Sunlight is one of the most effective healing agents that exists. Feeling down? One of the major benefits of sunlight is that it will soothe your nerves and boost your mood leaving you with a renewed sense of well-being. Sunlight increases the production of endorphins and serotonin in your brain which will definitely leave you feeling much better. Add one of Mom’s grilled cheese specialty sandwiches, and what more could you ask for on a sunny day :)

Mom Circa 1972

Who are a couple of the faces behind Mom’s Grilled Cheese? Mom’s Grilled Cheese is the creation and invention of the creative and always smiling Cindy Hamilton, seen here in this picture from 1972 with her brother Jeff. Jeff is the web master and blogger. Cindy has achieved a life-long goal of having a thriving business and is doing what she loves. Jeff is thrilled with his role as the part time web expert, as he’s paid in full with free grilled cheese for life!

The weather forecast this week is sunny with a chance of more sun! We’ll be in the mid 20’s every day, so get yourself down here along Howe Street between Georgia & Robson for the greatest food cart experience in all of Vancouver! There is a reason it’s lined up every day.

Breaking News – Grilled Cheese Induces Labour

Vancouver, Canada, Breaking News by Ron Burgundy – These two breaking news stories are just in, grilled cheese sandwiches can induce labour and Matt is the customer of the week. The world news outlets are abuzz with excitement as it appears the grilled cheese at Mom’s actually induces labour. Little Sasha was welcomed to our world just after a Mom’s grilled cheese sandwich was eaten this past week. Sasha had her first grilled cheese experience this week sporting a fashionable rainbow colored baby sling snuggled up next to her Dad. Yes, it’s true and you read it here first. We beat the National Enquirer with this scoop.

In a completely unrelated story……or is it…..our regular customer Matt is the customer of the week. A coincidence you may wonder? Inquiring minds want to know. Matt’s picture is a little dark and hard to view, but that was by design as Matt was concerned about the notoriety, media coverage and paparazzi that usually follows a Mom’s Grilled Cheese customer of the week. It is a big burden to shoulder after all.

I’m Ron Burgundy, stay classy Vancouver!

Road Construction Blues – Look For Us At Howe & Robson

With the warm weather FINALLY back, the line ups at Mom’s have gotten a little bigger. With the warm weather, also comes the City of Vancouver summer road construction and repair. Our normal spot is loud, the bang-bang-bang of jack hammers won’t stop. The City has our regular parking space closed right now. If we are not there over the next while, please have a look about a dozen parking meters South towards Robson Street.

We were set up there today and it was busy, one of our busiest days ever! As the temperature jumped above 20 today, we served up more and more hot home made organic tomato soup, topped with basil mascarpone. The soup shots for $1.00 were flying quicker than last call shots at 2:00AM with your beer goggles on! Thanks for your continued support everyone!
