When Trey VanCleave and Scott Akin decided to open their food truck in 2012, they desired to be different. Alternatively of serving burgers, barbecue and fried meals, they made the decision their finest option was to concentrate on balanced eaters.

So they launched Sensational Salads and Wraps, and they haven’t looked back again.

The title very substantially claims it all, with about 15 combos that can be built into both a hearty salad or a wrap in a tender and silky spinach flour tortilla. Anything is priced less than $12. If you really feel the need to cheat a little bit, they provide fried okra, sweet potato fries and crispy fried chicken as a protein possibility.

The truck is consistently parked in workplace parks and condominium complexes through the city, so you have to abide by them on social media to locate out in which they are on any provided working day. But there are two critical motives why Sensational Salads and Wraps should be set into your GPS: Each and every solitary component tasted crispy and refreshing, and each of the 15 dressings is manufactured in-residence each day. They are some of the most effective you will at any time flavor.

Finest dish: All hail this Caesar ($8.50 with grilled chicken), which puts to disgrace steakhouses that charge 2 times as a great deal. The chicken bumps the rate by $2.50, but it’s still the deal of all bargains, expertly seasoned and tender, with at the very least a 50 %-pound extra to the crunchy bed of romaine lettuce.

The signature creamy Caesar dressing was zesty with garlic and lemon. I could take in this salad 3 times a 7 days and consume the dressing like a milkshake.

Other dishes: The Strawberry Delight ($8) salad was loaded with berries that have been so contemporary, they could have been picked several hours right before services. Include in the slivers of almonds and a significant-handed scoop of blue cheese, and it could double as dessert.

The blueberry vinaigrette was a particular dressing throughout my pay a visit to, so I paired it with the vintage Cobb salad ($8), loaded with sliced hard-boiled egg, diced tomatoes, cheddar cheese, bacon bits and 50 percent of a freshly sliced avocado. The tart and fruity dressing was the yin to the yang of the hearty mixture of weighty elements, making harmony in the salad.

As fantastic as the salads are, do not neglect the wraps, simply because they also rank as some of the finest in the metropolis. Wrapped in foil, they are sliced into two equivalent halves, creating them incredibly uncomplicated to try to eat devoid of the mess.

The Fajita Fusion ($9) came loaded with lots of cubed skirt steak that would be regarded as a tiny as well rough on its have, but the levels of cheese, pico de gallo and chopped bell peppers with a sweet and spicy honey Sriracha dressing make this a sum-of-all-pieces accomplishment.

The Buffalo hen wrap ($9) could have used much more of that signature sauce to stand out a lot more from the greens, tomatoes, crimson onion slices, carrots and blue cheese crumbles. Nevertheless, I retained dunking it in ranch dressing and did not make any apologies for the mess that ensued.

Speaking of that amazing ranch dressing, a facet of it also arrives with the fried okra ($4), a part which is way more substantial than it needs to be. The okra arrives out piping sizzling, tender without the need of the mush and hugged by a blanket of crisp breading.

I simply cannot say plenty of great factors about this food items truck, so I’ll maintain it uncomplicated and reiterate its name: sensational.
