Just the Cheese Facts, Ma’am

Now that our witty and entertaining blog is back in action after a hiatus for no apparent reason, we thought it might be a good time to offer you some interesting facts. Mom’s now has over 1,200 Twitter followers, we have broken the 220 Urban Spoon Likes, 94% give us a thumbs up on Urban Spoon, over 1,000 Likes on Facebook and we are lined up pretty much every day. You might start to think Mom’s is doing something right, eh?

Just so you know, the term “just the facts, ma’am,” came from the old TV show Dragnet, detective Joe Friday, originally played by jack Webb actually said it. Funny man, Canadian and SNL alum Dan Aykroyd modernized it. Enjoy your long Easter weekend!

Keep On, Keepin’ On

Our diners have spoken out on Urban Spoon, thanks everyone! We really appreciate your words and great reviews. To quote Will Farrell in his role as Frank The Tank in Old School, “keep on, keepin’ on”.
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 warns 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 krimsoncity – Never had such a good grilled cheese. What a simple dish yet why does it taste so good?? I don’t know what’s happening in Mom’s truck but there must be a secret recipe to it!
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 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 seem to be working hard but the result is great, the grilled cheese are the best and the soup shots 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 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 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 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!

You Like Me. You Really Like me!

To borrow a famous quote from Sally Field when she won the Academy Award for Best Actress in 1984 “You like me. You really like me!” The comments and reviews on Urban Spoon have been so great, thanks everyone, you really do like me! Sorry, that really is a cheesy play on words. We’ve been referred to as “buttery, crunchy and gooey concoction known as the grilled cheese” and our roasted tomato soup has been called “amazing” and “truly delicious”. Unfortunately, you can’t please everyone, but we sure try.

On a cold day like today with snow forecast at higher elevations and the high downtown only hitting 7, it’s the perfect day to come down to Mom’s for some warm comfort food at lunch time.
