Some Rutgers University students call it an end of an era.

The grease trucks that have sold calorie-laden so-called “fat” sandwiches for years will be displaced from Lot 8 on College Avenue in New Brunswick to make room for student housing.

Rutgers officials expect to disperse the vendors around the New Brunswick and Piscataway campuses.

Rutgers spokesman E.J. Miranda tells The Star-Ledger of Newark the school has been in discussions with the food truck operators, who are expected to begin relocating next Thursday.

Rutgers junior Stephanie Mamakas told the paper what eating at the grease trucks is all about.

"It’s part of going to Rutgers," she said. "You can’t get this experience anywhere else. I’ve been going since I was a freshman. Everyone told me I had to have a fat sandwich when I got here and once I had one, I’ve been coming back."

Some food truck operators will be invited back to set up outdoor stands in a plaza that will be created for the new housing complex.

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