Great Place for Quick Lunch

I really like this food cart. I wouldn't say the food is amazing, but it's pretty good, and it's nice to have a food cart on campus to drop by for a quick lunch. Every item except the meatballs can be made vegan if you leave cheese off, and so there are a lot of options that are a good size to leave you feeling full. My favorite part about this food cart is their vegan cookies, they usually have two different kinds, and they are the absolute best cookies that I have ever tasted. They aren't too sweet, and they have this wonderful moist texture. The line can get really long sometimes, as it seems to be the most popular food cart in the area, but they always work fast so even a long line doesn't take up too much of your lunch time.
