I had never heard of the Local 215 truck when we decided to visit the new brewery in town, Love City Brewing, but I was excited to try it. The truck’s website had mostly catering information, so I had no idea what to expect going into it. It appeared that they didn’t have a set food truck menu and used local, seasonal ingredients for events. With a large pig on the logo, I was expecting some pork dishes, but there were vegetarian items to suit my veggie loving friends as well. Between all the members of our group, we tried every one of the menu items they had that day:

I had a big lunch that day so I opted for some of the smaller items, the pork fritters and the crazy fries. The fritters appeared to be the pulled pork, rolled in breadcrumbs and deep fried. Served atop a pool of whole-grain mustard and aioli, this was a deceptively filling dish with a lot of flavor. The crispy outside texture made this a winner. My husband had the pulled pork sandwich which had a nice kick with the hoisin sriracha sauce. He told me he preferred the pork fritters because pulled pork can sometimes get a bit watery on a sandwich. However, the flavor was still nice.

Two friends had the falafel on brioche. They said the tzatziki was amazing and the falafel itself was crispy and flavorful. Unfortunately, the bun was so thick it overwhelmed a lot of the flavors inside it, so one of them tossed the bun and ate the falafel inside by itself.

The brisket was moist and tender and had the nice cherry pepper relish served on the side to add some heat. The fontina cheese sauce was a nice salty counterpoint. This sauce was also ladled over the crazy fries, which were paired with perfectly cooked asparagus, one of my favorite spring veggies. The fries were battered as well. If you follow my blog, you know this is my favorite type of french fry! Crispy and yummy, this might have been my favorite of the items we tried.

Overall this truck is a winner! I think it’s refreshing to have a truck that uses locally sourced ingredients and keeps the menu rotating depending on what’s available. They are pretty active on social media as well, so to see what they are serving, check out their FB and twitter below. If I see them again, I’ll definitely give more items a try!
