As for the top food items you should check out, the roasted acorn squash is heavenly. The portobello gyro is also amazing, but make sure to ask for extra tzaziki sauce! You can’t get enough of this dish and it’s sauce. There’s even a “pulled pork” dish made out of fruit.
This food truck is definitely worth checking out. Also, their menu changes since it’s seasonal. Lulu’s works with local farmers and cooks seasonal grub, so you know it’ll always be fresh and delicious! Lulu’s phone number is listed as (314) 357-7717. Their Twitter handle is @lulusfoodtruck.
