Fresh off a long bike ride, the site of a food truck rodeo at The Village Grill in Grandin Village was welcome news. It didn’t take me long to give this sandwich a ride it would never forget.

CAPTION PLEASE. Talk about other menu items?

Despite the line, service was fast.

I visited: Toasted by Casey, a food truck based in Christiansburg, Va., at the Star City Food Truck Stop, held at The Village Grill in Roanoke, Virginia.

I tried: The Trippple Threat, a grilled cheese with deep-fried, breaded mozzarella sticks, American and mozzarella cheeses, and marina sauce sandwiched between slices of “Tuscan-seasoned” bread.

Why it stood out: Anything tastes good after a long bike ride, but this sandwich took it to another level. Paired with a Get Bent Mountain IPA from Parkway Brewing, I was really impressed with how well the fried treat translated to a grilled cheese sandwich. The cheese was perfectly melted inside and out, and the seasoned bread (WHAT ARE THOSE FLAKES?!?!) kicked it up a notch.

It cost: $6
