Don't be alarmed if you approach what you think is the ice cream truck, and you see a block of swiss cheese emblazoned on the side. Sweet teeth are soon forgotten with one whiff of molten cheese emanating from Cheddar's Gourmet Grilled Cheese.

Though diners can sate cravings with simple cheddar and swiss sandwiches, paired with creamy tomato-basil soup, this food truck's specialty is grilled cheese with a twist. Between slices of colby jack and provolone, diners opt for ham or turkey, topped with basil or pickles. Signature sandwiches include the Gold Rush, which stuffs mac 'n' cheese inside, and the BBBT, with bacon, basil, blue cheese, and tomato.

Pasties?pastry pies stuffed with meat and potatoes?originate from Cornwall and Wales, where local miners have eaten them for lunch for hundreds of years. Miners have always savored the hearty filling that would stay warm throughout the day and tossed the braided pastry crust, which served as a handle for sooty fingers. When those miners traveled the globe, they brought pasties with them to as far flung locations at Australia, Spain, and Butte, Montana.

Today, Joe's Pasty Shop sells pasties stuffed with flank steak, potatoes, and onions with a savory seasoning. The shop's pasties are so good, in fact, that they were highlighted as a go-to meal on the Travel Channel. Try one original style or with a helping of chili, cheese, and onions poured on top. You can also stop by for a selection of sandwiches including ham and swiss, tuna melts, and cheeseburgers.
