As a lover of the grilled cheese sandwich, I had very high hopes for a food truck called CheeZen – who wouldn't? But alas, my dreams were shattered mid fantasy. 
My company's landlord had hired CheeZen along with two other food trucks for a customer appreciation day in Woodcliff Lake, so naturally I took a walk to see what it was about. I was the first to arrive at the scene around 11:45 a.m., and after skimming over the pizza and hotdog trucks I made a beeline for CheeZen. After a quick scan of the chalkboard menu I ordered the Trio sandwich. I turned to speak with my boss for a few minutes and when I turned back expecting my sandwich to be ready, I saw the cook taking two very burnt slices of sourdough bread off the grill. Uh oh...  After watching further I noticed the grill was so hot it was smoking, and the cook had to continuously move the new slices of bread around with the spatula to keep them from burning. Very thin slices of cheese were then laid on the bread followed by two slices of tissue-paper-thin limp cold bacon. He promptly took the sandwich off the grill to keep it from burning a second time, but the cheese had not even melted yet! I got back to my office to take photos and it had melted a bit from being wrapped, so my photos ended up making this sandwich look much better than it was.
I haven't reviewed an Epic Crap Fail in quite a while, but this one gets the prize. The cook had no more interest in serving a quality sandwich than he did writing his menu board. And when you're asking $7.00 and up for cheese and bread it should be stellar. 

Here it comes...


EPIC, CRAP, FAIL!
