Where comfort food meets gourmet
We are a food truck based in the Twin Cities Metro Area and western Wisconsin. We want to bring you gourmet, hand-crafted grilled cheese sandwiches that are fast, fresh and easy to enjoy.
By fast, we mean you’ll have a sandwich in your hands faster than you can say “You betcha.” Yea, we said it.
By fresh, we mean the best in locally sourced ingredients that are in season and of high quality.
And by easy, well it’s grilled cheese, does it get easier than that? You grab your cheesy delight and get back to your day.
A food truck business has always been a topic of discussion when shooting the breeze during any number of trips Up North. I’ve always wanted to use my passion in the kitchen to bring comfort foods to the masses. But, this wishful thinking was just that. So, as many Minnesotans do, I’d head home after the weekend, quickly get back into the swing of things and set the dream aside until the next trip. Some of those trips were international, as I am currently serving with the United States Air Force and have been deployed worldwide. During my deployments, I was always drawn to the local food fare. That really got the wheels turning on how to incorporate these flavors in my cooking at home. And finally, it was when I was back in downtown St. Paul and the draw to the street foods and local vendors ignited the spark to do something about my food truck dream. I went home, talked to the wife and bought my first flat top griddle to start honing my craft with gourmet, artisan grilled cheese sandwiches with globally inspired flavors.
Our gourmet food isn’t something we take lightly, we aren’t here to bring you the latest health food craze – we’re here to serve you the best in cheesy comfort foods that help you embrace your winter bod you worked so hard on during those frigid months we true northerners endure in this frozen tundra we call home. And so, The Big Cheese was melted…a globally inspired culinary chef with mid-Western roots bringing you the finest in gourmet hand-crafted comfort foods delivering you a one-of-a-kind experience.
And speaking of home – we dare you to take a bite of any one of our sandwiches and not immediately reminisce of those warm childhood memories sitting in the kitchen on a wintery Sunday afternoon in the kitchen with mom and dad enjoying anything ooey, gooey and toasty.
And it isn’t just the food we want you to enjoy from our truck, we want you to enjoy the entire experience. So, every sandwich from The Big Cheese comes with a smile. That’s right, service with a smile…we grew up here, Minnesota-nice is how we were raised and it’s all we know!
And in case you haven’t caught on that we are Minnesota-grown, just ask the owner and head Chef, Nick, to show you his TC tats, but after you’ve grabbed yourself a tasty, cheesy hand-crafted Big Cheese sandwich 😉
