Rutgers readies food truck, the Knight Wagon

Truck set to debut at end of the month.

Feb. 11—The food truck craze  has found its way to Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, in New Brunswick.

University dining services will soon unveil its own food truck, the Knight Wagon, with a menu that is more gastropub than greasy spoon. Students will be able to grab a “twisted gyro burger” (ground lamb stuffed with baby spinach and feta on a toasted brioche roll), or a tandoori chicken and grilled shrimp shish kebab wrap, on their way to class.

Students should start to see the Knight Wagon parked on campus by the end of February. The 20-foot long scarlet red truck is equipped with a 50-inch screen, a satellite TV and a sound system and is decked out with neon lights. Emanuel said the goal was to create a fun and convenient experience for students.
