The Lucky Old Soul Truck
The Lucky Old Soul truck is all about fresh ingredients.The menu is small; burgers, veggie burgers, fries, sodas, and shakes. I waited a really long time at the LOVE park stop to finally dig in to the goods.
Having heard about the existence of a milkshake that was maple and black pepper flavored, I had to order it, despite realizing it cost over $6 dollars. It was absolutely delicious, the pepper and vanilla is a really unique combination. I could have even used a stronger maple flavor.
Burgers start at $5.50, and are made of Lancaster grass fed beef. Lettuce, tomato, onion are free but all other toppings cost extra. The signature burger comes with bacon, smoked cheddar, sauteed onions, pickled tomatoes, LOS sauce, and housemade bacon for $9. I went with this option with a few modifications – sharp cheddar and sour pickles instead of smoked cheddar and pickled tomatoes. I calculated it would be 50 cents more expensive to order all those toppings individually, rather than doing a swap. The burger, served on a really soft brioche, retained a little pinkness. I enjoyed both the pickles and the sharp cheddar. The bacon was particularly impressive, the truck should consider adding BLTs to the menu. However, at $9 for a smallish burger, I can’t help but think that whether I was at a restaurant or a truck, I would want a side to come with it. I would have loved to try the made to order sodas and fries, but I had already spent over $15.
