Senior visual communication design major Lynsey Simonette grabs her lunch order from Fork in the Road, a new food truck on campus. Lynsey bought an order of loaded fries topped with cheese, pulled pork and green onions.

As I trekked across campus Monday, I came across something other than the mass of students in their first-day outfits. Parked on the Esplanade near Bowman Hall was a state-of-the-art food truck called Fork in the Road. 

Executive Chef Christian Booher cooks up gourmet comfort food, such as homemade fries, tacos and salads. He said the menu will change with the availability of seasonal ingredients. Fresh ingredients were a selling point for me — I feel like fast, fresh food is a luxury these days. Reasonable prices are another reason to locate the truck for a quick lunch. 

To find out where Fork in the Road is parked for the day, students can follow it on Twitter @KSUFoodTruck, or “Like” its Facebook page. The hours vary between 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., so it’s important to keep track of the truck on social media.
