Word of Mouth

Steuben's Food Truck gets a name

Yorba. Rocco. Steubaru.

Those were just three of the many name suggestions the Steuben's Food Truck crew got after they announced they were holding a contest to name the vehicle doling out gravy fries and fried pork "Steuby" snacks all over town.

Convinced the truck is a girl, the gang picked "Pearl," suggested by Nicole Hess, who added her suggestion to the truck's Facebook wall yesterday afternoon.

Hess wins bragging rights and free lunch from Pearl, which is taking the day off, and will be back at Civic Center Park tomorrow.
