Would a mac and cheese egg roll pique your interest?

Then Twisted Cheese is the food truck for you. Leslie Jass, who already owns Fab Foods at Hillside and Bell, is fulfilling a dream by opening the mobile store that will feature gourmet grilled cheese, mac and cheese fritters and the aforementioned mac and cheese rolls.

The food truck will open to the public Friday, from 7:30 p.m. until the food is sold out, on the parking lot of the Bell Hillside Center at 5901 S. Bell St.  (That's the northeast corner of the Bell and Hillside intersection.)

Generally, Twisted Cheese will roam Amarillo serving lunch, so you’ll have to follow it on Facebook — or soon-to-come Twitter and Instagram accounts — to find each day’s location.

Jass said the truck will be open Wednesday through Saturday, plus some Sunday afternoons. A couple of locations are set. Wednesdays, Twisted Cheese will be in front of Pinkies at Hillside and Coulter, and on Thursdays, it will be in the Region 16 Education Service Center parking lot.

Fab Foods opened nearly three years ago. It offers take-and-bake casseroles, side dishes and salads.

Both businesses also take catering gigs.
