Q4U Barbecue

Owner/vibe » Usually, restaurateurs begin with a food truck in order to grow into a building. But "Tommy T." Brown and his famous Salt Lake County Q4U Barbeque are doing the opposite. "T," as he’s known, closed down his Taylorsville restaurant a year ago after road construction killed his business. Now, the former funk musician and barbecue king takes his smokin’ food on the road. Customers can feast on chicken and pulled pork sandwiches, sides, and freshly squeezed lemonade.

What to try » The pulled pork and chicken sandwiches with original or spicy sauce are the mainstays. Also try the "Q" dog, a quarter-pound hotdog with the works, slathered with T’s original sauce. But if you want the genuine Q4U experience, visit the truck at the Sam’s Club in Murray across from the Fashion Place Mall on Fridays and Saturdays where he also serves ribs straight from his smoker, which he pulls along with the truck.

Prices » Pulled pork, hot link or pulled chicken sandwich, $6; Chicken or pork T’aco’s, $3; Lemonade, $3.

Rubadue’s Saucey Skillet

Owner/Vibe » Owned and operated by long-time Utah chef and caterer, Carl Rubadue, whose specialty is sauces —thus the name. He offers a menu of "upscale comfort food" including crab cakes, macaroni and cheese and pulled pork sliders. The Saucey Skillet makes stops throughout the week at Research Park, the University of Utah Marriott Library Plaza and the Thursday Food Truck rally at The Gallivan Center.

What to try » The signature dish is an Alaskan red king crab cake made with coconut milk and red Thai curry and topped with a lemon ginger sauce. Macaroni and cheese is available plain or add bacon, crawfish or crab. And the classic BLT is made with applewood smoked bacon and served on one of Vosen Bakery’s ciabbatta rolls.

Prices »$6-$8

Saturday’s Waffle: Breakfast and brunch

Owner/vibe » Three friends looking for a creative outlet from their desk jobs landed on this refurbished 1955 aluminum Shasta Trailer, wearing matching bowties to match the soda-hop era. As the name says, it’s only open one day a week. And it’s found in one spot, the parking lot at 3900 S. Wasatch Blvd., Salt Lake City, (along with corporate events). Their fans, ranging from elderly to children, aren’t a Twitter-following crowd.

What to try » The waffles are made Liege-style, with sugar pearls in every bite. Kids and adults alike love the S’more, with melted chocolate in the middle topped with the gingerbread-like speculoos spread and toasted marshmallow cream. For something savory, try the Urban Lumberjack, made with Italian sausage and rosemary and sage gravy.

Prices » $7
