Grease Trucks

Inspired by Johnnyuma's "garbage plate".

In New Brunswick, NJ, we had grease trucks. grease trucks sold what was called "Fat"sandwiches, which such things as things on them as mozzarella sticks, chicken fingers, jalapeño poppers, and pizza bites. Many had burgers, some were vegetarian. ALL would clog your arteries.

This is the sandwich that started it all. The Fat Cat which is two cheeseburgers, lettuce, tomato, onions, ketchup, mustard and fries all inside a long roll.

The guys working the trucks would also banter with you until you bought one. My brother got "Hey buddy,you want a fat cat? Hot like pussy." The book "New Brunswick, New Jersey, Goodbye" by Ronen Kauffman also mentions it.

Confession: I never actually ate a fat sandwich. My thing was the hummus sandwiches.
