Four Seasons by Vizion Catering
For my first visit, I tried their most promoted item, the "Liberty Bell" Philly cheese steak with a side of fries and a lemonade to drink. There was some mis-communication in the ordering and I take responsibility for the fact that my sandwich doesn't have the mushrooms, peppers or onions that are available. Note to self, when ordering for the first time at a truck, pay attention to the order and not the truck features.
I guess I also had not paid attention to the menu because I was surprised when the cheese came out pre-melted. I did check the menu and it clearly says that, so again, my fault for not paying attention to details. I know that in Philly Cheese Wiz is a very popular option for cheese steaks, I can't say for sure that is what Four Seasons offered, because it was completed melted. My guess is that this is the same cheese used on the nachos that are on the menu. I personally would have preferred provolone but for those who prefer the smooth flow of melted cheese, this is your sandwich.
I also would have preferred the meat to be more thinly sliced, which is how I have had other cheese steaks. But the meat was tasty, so consider the cut to be a personal taste and if your personal taste is more chunky meat, as you can see in the picture, you will like this sandwich. The fries were your basic frozen fries, that severed as a nice side to round out a meal.
I did very much enjoy the truck made lemonade and was told by the person working the window that it was made fresh daily, so be sure to get you a cup if you visit this truck.
On my second visit, I ordered the Black Angus burger, which comes in both full size and slider size. The burger patty was truck made and has a variety of cheeses offered. I found the meat in the burger to taste very similar to the meat in the Philly Cheese Steak, although the burger meat had a more discernible fat content. I would have also preferred the burger to have been less "well done". The veggies on the burger were fresh and crisp.
Four Seasons has a price point lower than many of the other food trucks and offers the type of comfort food that you would find at a local lunch counter. The owner and staff are very friendly and I think repeat will visits will make this truck have the comfort of home. I look forward to seeing what their next rotation of the menu offers.
Also, I have been asked numerous times if this truck is associated with the Four Seasons hotel. It is not.
