Meatballs and Etc. Serves All Kinds of Balls, Weekend Roundups
Meatballs and Etc. serves balls...lots of balls.
Ahmet Karaca, has expanded and divested his food truck empire. His truck Happy Greek/Chef on 4 Wheels, which serves Greek favorites, has had so much success since its February start, he's recently launched a new truck concept, Meatballs & Etc.
Meatballs & Etc. features balls. Lots and lots of balls. You can get your balls in a slider ($4 each or two for $7). Balls come in your choice of meats: classic beef, Swedish, Italian or cheesy balls. If you're extra hungry, try a ball hero ($9), which comes with three balls and your choice of sauce and cheese with a small side salad.
We like our balls wet, so sauces include meat sauce, classic tomato, spicy mayo, jalapeño & cucumber, blue cheese, Alaskan hot sauce, Western BBQ, and pesto.
If you like your balls smashed, Karaca's got you covered. A smash ball bowl ($11) includes three balls over spaghetti, cheese and side of fries.
Naked balls are available ($6), and include two balls and sauce on a hero. For dessert, try the chocolate lava balls ($3).
Karaca has turned his attention to Meatballs and Etc., so he's turned his original truck, Happy Greek/Chef on 4 Wheels over to his wife, Selin, and father, Mustafa.
Karaca also plans to launch a frozen yogurt truck sometime in August.
