Richmond – Mexican Philly Cheese Steak Truck with Peet’s Coffee

... 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.
