Food Truck Bite of the Week: BBQ Tri-Tip Sandwich at Mayo & Mustard

Our weekly bite explores the city's food trucks, one at a time, highlighting our favorite mobile dishes and snacks.

The Truck: Mayo & Mustard

The Cuisine: Hot deli-style sandwiches

Specialty Items: Anything on the Dutch crunch bread

Worth the Wait in Line? At peak lunch time, a total 10 minutes from the end of the line to food in hand.

When I first started this weekly exploration of food truck cuisine, I knew there would come a day when I would have to face my culinary demons, those few items I really don't enjoy eating. Even with determined Jeffrey Steingarten-esqe attempts to simply like them, yellow mustard, ketchup, and American-style cucumber pickles remain my bane. Yes, yes, I know, and no really, I don't like them.

With my dislike for those condiments — clearly the work of some repressed sandwich trauma — I dodged the Mayo & Mustard truck simply based on the name. The sheer number of trucks allowed me the luxury to simply eat around this one, like a picky diner shifting food about on a plate.
