Have you seen the new Food Truck in Saugerties at 208 Ulster Avenue? I happened to be in Saugerties today running an errand and I remembered that I wanted to try out the new food truck which sits right across the Lumber Yard. I met the husband and wife team who own the Shack Chef Foodtruck at the Monday Night Groaning table at Duo Bistro. George invited me to try a lunch special.
Their menu has something for everyone. It is mostly New American gourmet cuisine. I ordered their 1/4 pound of smoked salmon on a bed of greens. (You have the option of having it on a house-baked brioche bun instead). For the $7.50 lunch specials include fries, and a drink). My husband had the smoked chicken apple salad on greens, with fries, and a drink. The man who shared our picnic table with us said he was very pleased with his grass-fed burger. It was his second lunch at the Chef Shack food truck.
Emily & George are passionate about their food and their new business, and it shows. The quality of the food is very good. I think it is comparable to a dish you would eat in a restaurant. Chef Shack, Better Than Your Average Fare, 208 Ulster Avenue, Saugerties, NY (845) 453-2675. They do get busy at lunch time so if you are pressed for time on your lunch break, I'd phone your order in. They are open Tuesday to Thursday 11 am -3pm. They don't have a Facebook or website up yet, but they do have Hudson Valley Good Stuff! Tell them you heard it on Hudson Valley Good Stuff!
