Food Truck Feature: Serial Grillers

Upon first glance, the Serial Grillers menu of burgers, cheesesteaks, and grilled cheese sandwiches – all named after fictitious and real-life serial killers – is a compilation of nightmares.

But fear not, foodie. For, the only anxiety you’ll face standing before the mustard yellow food truck is making a final decision.

While many newcomers opt for the more popular items such as:

  • Pennywise Chicken Cheesesteak (chicken, grilled onions, jalapeños, bacon, ranch dressing & cheddar cheese)
  • Psycho Ribeye Cheesesteak (ribeye, grilled onions, jalapeños, avocado, cilantro mayo, tomatoes & pepper jack cheese)
  • Leatherface Burger (grilled onions, lettuce, tomatoes & cheddar cheese)

Repeat offenders – ahem, guests – know to inquire about Serial Grillers’ limited-run specialty burgers such as:

  • Chucky (Sriracha Ranch, jalapeño poppers, onion crunch, cheddar)
  • Joe Carroll (mayo, jalapeño, onion rings, bacon, habañero BBQ sauce, cheddar)
  • Trinity Killer (fried mac ‘n’ cheese, pancetta, mayo, cheddar).

Even if a specialty burger isn’t directly advertised, oftentimes the ingredients are on hand to whip one up.

Don’t forget to add a side of Sea Salt Seasoned Tater Tots, too. With sides priced as low as $2 and sandwiches ranging from $5-$8, it’s easy to splurge on multiple menu items. So, bring a friend (or two) and order that extra Boston Strangler Ribeye Cheesesteak with your Zodiac Burger.

While Serial Grillers began as a lone food truck, they now feature a brick and mortar location at 5737 E. Speedway. The standalone store isn’t the exact same menu as the truck, however many of the more popular items are available along with some killer pizza.

For a wickedly delicious and non-traditional dining experience with a flair for the macabre, go and face your fears at Serial Grillers.
