What's to eat? The genesis of all good things at the tiny, eye-poppingly bright yellow-and-red truck is a big, fat, juicy Angus burger for five or six bucks, depending how you build it.

Wait: Five minutes. The Drexel Dragons are on summer break.

Why we love it: Incredible burger taste without the trendy-burger-joint lines or skyscraper-high prices of Center City.

Try this: One of the best bacon cheeseburgers ever. Or go for a daily special such as The Fresko, a "romantically seasoned" burger with marjoram, oregano, parsley, mint, minced garlic, cracked pepper and Mediterranean Sea salt, plus roasted peppers, arugula, goat cheese, tzatziki, balsamic reduction and Lord only knows what else.

Beyond the burgers? Roasted pork sandwiches and cheesesteaks.

Find it: 33rd & Market area. Drive around the block till you spot the SPOT. Lunch hours through early dinner.
