Quick Bites: Stick-to-Your-Ribs Goodness From the Rolling Stove
Our feature story this week on South Florida's food trucks covered one of the original trucks operating in Broward and Palm Beach, Delray's the Rolling Stove. Fire-engine red with a faux-smoke stack that stands high above the truck's shady awning, the Stove serves hearty, heavy, Midwest-inspired street food of the greasy-good ilk. Its signature steak burger is a perfect example: Owner Troy Thomas (right) compliments the fresh beef blend he nabs daily from K&G Meats (the same beef used at Charm City Burgers) with the addition of ground-up bacon that works its way into the patty's every nook and cranny. Topped with grilled or fried onions and a generous smear of aged Wisconsin cheddar, it's a burger that should come with a complimentary bypass. Oh, it's excellent as well -- one of the finest in two counties, in this eater's opinion. Juicy, full-on flavor, with a supple bun that's wisely toasted on the inside (not outside, so your teeth sink right through).
