The Original Grilled Cheese Truck

Santa Barbara

Melting the hearts of Angelenos since 2009, the Grilled Cheese Truck was one of the first food trucks to hit the road.

With its success in Southern California, and its expansion into San Diego, Orange County, and Ventura County, we are excited to be opening our first Brick & Mortar just up the coast from our original stomping grounds.

Just separated from the ocean by a bluff, in the center of the beachside community of Isla Vista, and adjacent to the University of California, Santa Barbara, the Grilled Cheese Truck Stop is GRILLED to be serving up our special brand of “Cheesy Goodness” to “Gauchos”, locals, and tourists, alike.

We can’t wait to MELT you!
