Try a pretzel as big as your head at this food truck

The twisted baked-treat trend exploded several years back, and it’s not going anywhere. One food truck that’s taking advantage of the craze is Bighorn Pretzel Co.

The Yellow Springs-based mobile restaurant uses “the most fresh, local ingredients available,” according to the company’s website.

The menu spans a variety of sandwiches, sliders, sides (French fries, potato salad, etc.), soft pretzels and several specialty soft pretzels. They also whip out new items.


 Cuban Sliders: Warm pork tenderloin, deli ham, swiss, mayo, mustard & pickles stacked on two pretzel buns. Mmmmm, yum.

The food truck is vastly popular, so go early before they run out and be prepared for a long wait. When it was at RiverScape MetroPark last week, about a dozen people were in line ahead of me.  By the time I got up to the counter, there were no more veggie burgers. Fortunately, I got the last two Buffalo Chicken Sliders on pretzel buns, topped with baby gherkin pickles.

I also tried the Cinnamon & Sugar Soft Pretzel. The largest pretzel I’ve ever seen, it was warm and soft, and with icing, a pure work of gastronomical art.

The grilled cheese, served on regular bread, was also pretty darn tasty, and a good choice non-pretzel-lovers, if any actually exist.
