One of the most common issues people have when eating from a food truck, is the fact that in most cases, there is nowhere for them to sit down while they eat the meal they just purchased. The debate over whether to stand or sit while eating is more than one of comfort and etiquette. And although you may prefer to eat while sitting down, it may just be healthier for you to eat while standing up.
Needless to say, very often I tend to eat on the run. With the help of my good friends I recently learned one of many best kept secret treasures in New York is lunch from Jimmy’s Steak & Grill Food Truck cart on the NE corner of 60th St. & Madison Avenue owner Jimmy Gonzales and partner Abel Bamos. Yes, you heard me right – Food Truck!
There aren’t a lot of options in that area — apart from $15 and up lunches at fancy restaurants — which is one reason there is always a long line at Jimmy’s Steak & Grill Food Truck cart. The other reason is his food. Jimmy’s Steak & Grill has great grilled chicken, steaks, lamb, shrimp and gyros. Today, I went for the Daily Special, Lamb over Rice and Salad, which cost $6.
All proteins are “real” – not the thin sandwich type meats you get in some places – and it had that great grilled flavor and never has fat around the edges, lean quality meat.
Jimmy’s Steak & Grill also offers many specials with chicken instead of steak , the prices are just right, all the ingredients used were high-quality, and the charcoal grilling raises the bar to a whole other level – depending on whether you get a sandwich or platter. That could account for the long lines at lunchtime. I am giving Jimmy’s Steak & Grill 4 stars for cleanliness and great food.
Jimmy’s Steak & Grill is another old-school vendor who loves to cook. https://www.facebook.com/pg/Jimmys-STEAK-GRILL-146508229269165/about/?ref=page_internal
