... or the fusion truck.

“Do you want peppers on the sandwich?”

Sure, never turn down anything offered. See what it is.

Peppers in this case mean jalapeños.

About those $4.50 cheese steaks … let’s just say it is a Taco truck that puts steak or chicken in tacos or burritos … so hey, why not put this in a sandwich roll add a few slices of American cheese … cheese steak.

It is a large sandwich with lots of sliced beef that makes up 90% of the filling which has the correct amount of black pepper. It is on a soft sub roll with the edges lightly toasted and spread with mustard and mayo. Given the jalapenos and a little chopped iceberg in there with a few slices of pickle and tomato … one could say it is an interpretation of the cheese steak.

It was filling and it wasn’t a greasy version of a cheese steak.

In addition to the basic cheese steak there is also pepper steak, mushroom steak, chicken steak & ham steak. Ham steak might be good if it is fried up like the beef and served hot.

Besides the cheese steaks they sell Miller jumbo hot dogs ($2.75), Polish sausage ($3), Hot links ($3), burgers ($3-$4), tacos ($1.50), burritos ($4), and super nachos (choice of the steak or chicken on top ($4.75).

There’s a white board with specials. Today it was beef tamales for $2.50.

There are breakfast sandwiches ($4) that have eggs with choice of bacon, sausage or ham. There’s also a BLT. The breakfast burrito is $4.75 and has hash browns in it.

Besides the Peet’s Coffee there are bottled soft drinks and juices.

It was a one-woman truck when I stopped by. She said the truck has been in business for about 20 years.

The name of the truck, Eat & Run, has some irony in it. Cheese steaks are rarely a quick item. When the owner is cooking, she sometimes doesn’t see the people waiting in line. I sat on the bench outside the truck and enjoyed the rare sunny day with everyone else. I enjoyed the sunny day quite a while. I should have used sun screen.
