Food trucks come in a variety of cool concepts, but until recently, I’d never written about a breakfast-specific mobile eatery. Well, thanks to The Breakfast Tray Food Truck for making my early morning culinary dreams come true. And here is the best part, the food is fantastic, but just make sure you’re not on a diet or looking to cut calories. The menu, while small, is packed with stick-to-your-ribs, gut-busting options.



Start out with one each of the Chicky on a Sticky and Piggy on a Sticky. This is fair food at its finest, a crispy waffle-on-a-stick ready for a dip in the accompanying spicy maple syrup. An order of two is $6, and I honestly couldn’t tell you which one is better, the fried chicken or the bits of pork sausage. One thing is for certain, do not pass on the spicy maple syrup. In fact, ask for extra and douse the rest of your dishes with it. 



The Rye’s N’ Shine Burrito, which comes stuffed, and I mean stuffed, with scrambled eggs, shredded cheese, and crumbled sausage and bacon, is another winner. The truck isn’t stingy with portions, and I am guessing half of this burrito would comprise a normal human’s complete breakfast. They can even deep fry the handheld, if that’s your thing, and cover it with a cheese sauce for a nominal fee. My arteries shutter at the thought.



The biscuits and gravy come with a sizeable, scratch-made biscuit covered in sausage gravy, the latter of which was probably a touch salty for my preference. That’s an easy fix in an otherwise perfect showing from the truck. The gravy plays a prominent role in what I am guessing is one of the most popular dishes: Morning Routine Poutine. For $9, diners get a styrofoam container filled with chunks of homes fries that are then covered with the sausage gravy, cheese sauce, bacon crumbles and a fried egg. I recommend chasing this dish with a Lipitor and hoping for the best. All kidding aside, props to the truck for another winning dish. The only thing I didn’t try on my visit was the Always Sunny in Quesadilla, which is pretty much the same as the burrito, but in a quesadilla format. 


The Breakfast Tray is one you need to add to your food truck to-do list, especially if you live in Conway, but I’d also recommend making the drive from anywhere in Central Arkansas. The food lives up to the hype and the service is super friendly. What more do you need? Oh, and the prices are reasonable, especially when you take into account the large portions. 


The trailer is stationed at 2600 Dave Ward Drive, and by the looks of the steady stream of customers coming and going, Conway has already taken to this relatively new eatery.


It’s easy to see why.
