Fried Food Truck’s Roasted Beef Sandwich

By Anna Faller | July 8, 2023

Good food is the name of the game at Fried Food Truck in Lake Leelanau. While there’s nothing short of delicious on their almost entirely un-fried menu, the star of the show is their Roasted Beef Sandwich ($15). It starts with a tender, Detroit-style hoagie layered with shaved ribeye and melted sharp cheddar (which chefs “boost” with tomato, garlic, and red pepper). From there, they up the flavor ante with a healthy schmear of dijonnaise—ingredients: mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, horseradish, lemon zest, and confit garlic—and a savory onion-mushroom relish. Scarf one down as is, or make it gluten free by topping a plate of home fries with all the beefy fixin’s. Find Fried Food Truck slinging their signature goodies at 45 North Winery (8580 E. Horn Rd, Lake Leelanau) from 11am-6pm Thursday to Sunday, and stay tuned for a monthly wine-pairing dinner, featuring chef Adam Raupp! Learn more at
