CR food truck turns into fine dining sensation
The Saucy Focaccia, is a great little burger restaurant located at 5100 Fountains Drive in Cedar Rapids. The family business began as a food truck in Cedar Rapids and is now a full sized restaurant. When walking in, smells of food cooking fills the air, but looking around, it feels like an old fashioned diner. It’s a great place to get a gourmet sandwich or burger and chat with friends.
At this visit, I had the Bacon Mac and Cheesy burger with a side of fries and a drink. When biting into the burger, the beef collides with hot macaroni and cheese. The bacon adds a rich but savory flavor.
The Saucy Focaccia also has some other specialty burgers, as well as a variety of sides and fries. The Pork BBQ Fries and the Bacon Mac and Cheesy fries are two specialty options offered along with regular sides such as jalapeno poppers and onion rings.
Holding the beef, The Saucy Focaccia offers a variety of sandwiches including a Cuban, Pulled Pork and a Walnut Cranberry Chicken Salad Sandwich. To top it off, a wide variety of sauces are available, including some unique ones like the Rum Pepper BBQ sauce and the Blueberry BBQ sauce.
According to saucyfocaccia.com, “Saucy Focaccia had a big year in 2015, winning the Best Sandwich award from KCRG A*List and also making the Iowa Beef Council’s Top 10 Burgers in Iowa list. In 2016 we have been awarded Best Burger, Best Sandwich and Best Restaurant by the KCRG A*List.” After this visit, it’s not hard to see why.
It’s small, very affordable and with this visit being under $11, it’s a great place to grab a bite to eat with family or friends. An online menu is available at saucyfocaccia.com and the restaurant is open 10:30 a.m. - 8 p.m. Sunday - Thursday and 10:30 a.m. - 9 p.m. Friday - Saturday.
