Joe's Pond in Danville is a hot summer attraction. Not just for the water sports, but for the food. Sambel's food truck sees about 100 people a day.
"It's great, it is great," said Adria Moon, 6.
"I love the idea and it's great being at the beach," said Kim Foran of Plainfield.
Reporter Gina Bullard: How's business?
Brenda Sambel: Excellent, couldn't be better.
Brenda Sambel and her husband, Bob, owned a restaurant at the Berlin airport for 23 years but closed up shop. They thought buying a truck would be an easier and less expensive way to do what they love.
"I went online and found this truck. I got it from Circus Smirkus for $800 and we just made it into a rolling kitchen and this is what we do," Brenda Sambel said.
The menu is long and diverse. Some food truck favorites are the Monster Burger-- weighing in at 8 ounces, whole belly clams and prime rib. That's right, prime rib off a truck.
"We have all the same equipment, ovens; we still order all the same food. And people say, yup, still as good as it used to be," Sambel said.
"It's just as good as a normal restaurant, if not better," Foran said.
Gina Bullard: What makes this food special?
Adria Moon: Well, it's made with love.
The Sambel's truck will be making an appearance at the Tunbridge World's Fair this year.
