robirdstx from eG and I met up at Haute Wheels yesterday and had a good time. Weather was incredible but the lines got impossibly long. We left after three hours because we were looking at more than an hour wait to get another bite. I see on their website they've cut off ticket sales and will not sell tickets at the door today in order to try and rein in the long lines.
She has posted a report on eG:
If that link doesn't work, it's the lunch - what'd you have thread in the Cooking forum, page 23, starting at post #668!!! Yep. They have ridiculously long threads over there, too.
Warning: there are a lot of pictures, in her post and in the thread.
We didn't get to eat at Oh My Gogi, the one I was most interested in trying that I haven't sampled. Of the others I tasted, Rolling Hunger seemed very promising; I'll have to check them out again. Good Dog also looked very good; I'll try to hunt them down the next time I get a craving for a hotdog.
I only had the mediocre Belgian fries, a hush puppy and the mini quesadilla so I was still hungry so later I went to the newest truck in my area, a New Orleans po-boy cart using a mini streetcar, Cooper's Po Boy Express. It was my second visit and I tried the roast beef. It wasn't as good as the best in town (Calliope, followed by BB's) but it's only 5 minutes from my door so that counts for something. The bread is like what's used at Antone's. I've had the hot sausage poboy using Danton's hot sausage from Bogalusa before and it was better than this. I did not order the cheese - they stuck it on there but didn't charge me for it. I'm going to do a full report on my blog.
