        A little more Googling shows this:

        [SPOILER: Apparently yes. It comes up on their Facebook page too, so.]

            This truck sounds like it is worth searching for!

              I've been to their 'restaurant' but not the truck. I will find out more about the truck when I call them... :-)

                I've only had the pork souvlaki, which I find delicious. It is expensive for the portion, admittedly.

                  it's priced right for it scarcity alone. my friend and I enjoyed the pork souvlaki pita wrap and the fries at the 'restaurant'. the truck is probably just as special.

        I have a feeling that charcoal on an enclosed truck would not be legal, not that I know for sure.

          I don't know, but I do know many parks do not allow propane tanks, charcoal only for patrons and food vendors (concession stands might do differently?)

          I can try and find a cart, but I prefer a truck, if it exists. BTW, I guess I should mention that it is a Nassau County Park... in the TOH, if the license makes a diff...

          Maybe one of those LARGE carts that are at least TWICE the size of those hot dog / pretzel carts...?

          Thanks!

            Well if you find one, be sure to let us all know! It would be worth the drive to me.
