Today I was with my boyfriend Matt and we were both starving when we arrived at Lilac Fest. I said I wished I would have brought gluten free buns so I could have had a hot dog. Even though Matt was super hungry, he was great and pushed his hunger pains away while we walked and hoped for a gluten free option. After walking though thousands of people and 10 blocks, we got to end of the festival and I just about gave up and opted for a soy latte in place of lunch when I say Fries & Dolls Food Truck. At the top of their menu it said gourmet gluten free french fries. Hallelujah!
We saw the line stretch around the truck and down the block but I didn’t care. After about 20 minutes we made it close enough to read the menu which had 4 different types of french fries including truffle and parm, pink salt and black pepper or garlic and parsley.
I knew right away I wanted the truffle oil and parm. Matt ordered the pink salt and cracked black pepper and we were offered chipotle dipping sauce or ketchup. We both took chipotle dipping sauce but I knew I wouldn’t eat mine. The best news was that normally Fries and Dolls has gluten free hot dogs and bread but didn’t today for Lilac Fest. The owner’s sister and mom are both celiac and so know how to cater to the gf crowd.
Right away we dug in and our fries which were hot, fresh and delicious. In my opinion anything with truffle oil is delcious and I wasn’t dissapointed. Matt loved his fries as well but I still say order the truffle oil. Follow Fries & Dolls on Twitter to find out where the truck will be each day.

I was so happy to see a gluten free option at Lilac Fest but I think next year I should put in a gluten free booth that offers street food like mini donuts, hot dogs and hot sammy’s.
