Grease Trucks Roll on at Rutgers

Dan Stamm

That's right the Rutgers' grease truck creation Fat Darrell will be available again.

The grease trucks that have sold calorie-laden so-called “fat” sandwiches to Rutgers students for years have found a new home.

Rutgers University students will continue to get their share of calories from the so-called “fat” sandwiches sold by grease trucks when the school year begins in September.

On the eve of being evicted, the food vendors reached an agreement in principle to relocate now that student housing constriction has displaced them from Lot 8 on College Avenue in New Brunswick.

The trucks will be dispersed to designated spots around campus where sandwiches like the Fat Darrell (chicken fingers, mozzarella sticks, french fries, lettuce, tomato and marinara) and other "fat" sandwiches will be served up.

The trucks won't be permitted to permanently park at the sites and must operate between 7 a.m. and 2 a.m. daily.

Rutgers spokesman E.J. Miranda tells The Home News Tribune the food operators will be charged a $1,000 permit fee each semester. That's less than the $750 per-month rent they were charged to use Lot 8. The lower cost is in part due to the university no longer having to pay for bathrooms and other services, the paper reported.

Food trucks began showing up at Rutgers in the 1960s and were moved to Lot 8 in the 1990s.
