Because of Food Truck Fridays, us AMP Radio folk get our pick of the latest in gourmet food truck cuisine.

But sometimes, you just want a good old-fashioned American classic.

Like the kinds of meals your Mom used to pack you for lunch.

Luckily for us, we tracked down a truck that is cooking up some of our childhood favorites!

Cheeseball Wagon only launched last month, but it’s already a favorite out on the streets of LA.

Co-owners Jason and Lisa explained to Carson how they came up with the idea for their cheesy meals on wheels:

So what exactly is a cheeseball? Essentially, it’s a breaded, deep-fried cheddar cheese nugget served with ranch dressing. Umm…DELISH!

But if that isn’t your style, Cheeseball Wagon also serves up sloppy joe’s, PB&J sandwiches, sliders, and hot dogs.

For those with a sweet tooth, try their gourmet cheesecake balls that are rolled in graham cracker crust and dipped in blueberry sauce.

The whole idea for Cheeseball Wagon came about when Jason and Lisa spent last summer visiting her hometown in Iowa where she introduced her love of cheeseballs to Chef Jason.

With Jason’s culinary expertise and Lisa’s unique concept, it seemed like a no brainer.

Cheeseball Wagon hasn’t even been out on the streets for two months yet and the food-rating organization Zagat selected it as its Food Truck of the Week!

One of our favorite parts about Food Truck Friday is that we get to reward one of AMP Radio’s awesome listeners with a free lunch from our truck of the week.

Congratulations to today’s winner Mark from Los Angeles!

Didn’t win this time? Listen up to Carson every Friday for your next chance!
