Food Truck Stalking

I've been to a Food Truck Friday before. That's easy. All the food trucks go to the same place, Friday after Friday, and there's no searching around to find what you're looking for.

It's a whole different ballgame on a Saturday.

Patrick's one request for his visit to the QC this past weekend was for grilled cheese & tomato soup. I don't know about y'all but I don't ever have a loaf of bread hanging out in my kitchen. Mainly because I'll eat like six slices out of it before it expires and it's a huge waste. But... I knew the best place to order a grilled cheese & tomato soup from.

Papi Queso!

We found them at Sleepy Poet Antique Mall on South Blvd Saturday afternoon. We showed up right around the same time that they did so, while they were getting everything set up & warmed up, we wandered into Sleepy Poet to look around.

I think I could have been entertained in there for hours.

Especially by this little piece...

Huh. Looks just like something I bought the day after Christmas from Pier 1... I'm intrigued by how something like that ended up in an antique store.

Eventually, we made it back outside for some lunch. Papi Queso did not disappoint. Patrick understood after lunch why I was so insistent on driving all the way out to find this food truck and why I wasn't deterred by having to wait for them to get set up/warmed up.

Their Big Cheesy grilled cheese is hands down the best grilled cheese that I have ever had. So freaking good.


  1. Oh I love the Sleepy Poet! They always have the coolest stuff in there. And that grilled cheese looks amazing, gotta love food truck food.

  2. Now I totally want Papi Queso for lunch! I'm off to food truck stalk!

  3. Hmmmm this makes me want a grilled cheese sandwich right now! I've never been to a food truck before but every city I have traveled to always talks about them. Guess I need to add visiting one to my bucket list :-)

  4. What is this Sleepy Poet?! I've been gone from Charlotte far too long if I had no idea this existed. Guess I need to go check this out next time I'm in town!

  5. One of my bucket list items is to get food from a food truck! LOL

  6. I have yet to check out any of the food trucks here. I feel so behind. But thanks for the heads up on Papi Queso. I live for a good grilled cheese sandwich.
