On a Roll • Sweet and savory crêpes

Owner/vibe • Jack Young, his wife, Kalia Coller, and their son Nolan serve made-from-scratch crêpes using a recipe they discovered while living in France.

What to try • The house special is the Monte Cristo, filled with ham, turkey and havarti cheese, sprinkled with powdered sugar and served with maple syrup on the side. For something lighter, try the Greek, a vegetarian crepe filled with spinach, feta cheese, red onions and black olives.

Pogi’s Pizza Truck • Pita bread pizza, salads

Owner/vibe • This pizza parlor in a truck, operated by Jeremy Pack, roams Salt Lake County, satisfying hungry diners with pita-bread-pizza. Pack fire-grills the pita bread every morning before heading out on the road. As for the name: It’s Filipino for "cute" or "handsome" boy, which Pack said people used to call out to him when he served a Mormon mission in The Philippines.

What to try • The garlic chicken pizza or the "founders favorite," packed with sausage and tomatoes. In all, there are four sauces and 18 toppings to choose from.

Prices • Pizza, $4.25-$4.50; salads, $2.75-$4.25

Submarino’s • Sandwiches

Owner/vibe • At this two-month old truck, owner Tony Marino serves sandwiches that reflect his Italian heritage. He also has a way of turning a regular sandwich into a taste adventure, and the French onion grilled cheese is just one example. Other offerings include sausage and peppers and meatball subs, with meat from local sources.
