Throughout the summer, our office has been hosting Food Truck Fridays, which I've mostly missed due to travel. But I was present to join the long line of my coworkers on a recent Friday to enjoy a little Bacon Nation.
Holy heart attack, Batman. This ain't a diet-friendly truck. One of my buddies ordered the Double Bypass, which was two big burger patties (50/50 ground bacon and beef) sandwiched between two grilled cheese sandwiches. FOR REAL. This exists. Another got the Hot Mess, which was basically bacon cheese fries with ranch chicken and other fixins. YUM.
I chose to get Bacon Cheese Fries, which was fries with queso and bacon crumbles. It cost $7, but it was ample for my meal; I didn't even finish it. I was hoping to get a fried egg on top, but they were already out. These guys were serving up a ton of stuff rapid fire; they definitely had service down to a science and rolled food out faster than most trucks. I appreciated that, given it was crazy hot out and the line was long.
I would say these fries were pretty tasty. The queso was pretty thick, and overall it was a sticky, delightfully salty mess. I think Bacon Nation is a great gut truck. I never thought I'd say this, but it's almost a little too bacon-y and cheesy for me to consider chasing often. But every so often, I bet I'd like to get my fix.
