Grand Marais, MN - FOODTRUCK!!!?

Yep, there it was, tucked between the Beaver House and the East Bay Suites in the alley: "Alyce's"
None of the fancy big city offerings (or of the fancy pants places right in Grand Marais) , but competent made to order grill type food. Some plastic lawn chairs and tables allow for some sit down eating, the usual wait is about 5 minutes. The menu includes burgers, hot dogs, and the signature "squealer" pork tenderloin sandwich. On a recent northbound trip through town I had the Squealer, nicely spicy with an abundance of good lettuce, tomatoes, a spiced mayo sauce and hamberger dills on the side. I had a great chili dog, grilled bun, homemade chili with beans on top on my southward journey. There are offerings of french or sweet potato fries, but I didn't go there.

Sounds like Alyce plans to be there until freeze up and it's a great quick stop as an alternative to the pizza by the slice at Sven & Ole's or the DQ (no not the DQ that posts on Chow).

  1. The pork tenderloin sandwich alone will get me back up to Grand Marais soon. I've been on the road close to 70 days, 11,000 miles from Palm Springs to Washington DC in our RV. The rest of the summer I'll play in my "backyard" of Minnesota. :)
