🚚 Meet the 454 Grill Food Truck! 🍔
Welcome to a culinary journey crafted in the heart of North Carolina! Meet AJ and Eli, two passionate souls with a love for food and community, anchored in the scenic beauty of the NC mountains and fueled by the vibrant spirit of the Triangle and NC State Wolfpack. 🐺 🏞️
With over 15 years of experience in the food industry and a memorable stint managing Raleigh’s beloved The Alley restaurant, AJ and Eli are no strangers to the art of creating unforgettable dining experiences. When The Alley bid adieu, a new chapter began - the birth of the 454 Grill Food Truck! 🎉 🚚
Every inch of the 454 Grill tells a story. Born from an old SnapOn tool truck, transformed and reborn, every detail is a labor of love. The truck, gutted and adorned with a dashboard crafted from the reclaimed bowling lane wood of The Alley, is a tribute to new beginnings and endings, and the beautiful cycle of renewal. 🛠️ 🌟

💬Facebook Customer Review 💬
"I honestly did not have high hopes for this food truck. I just got off work and didn’t feel like cooking. Let me tell you, those Nachos were excellent. I had the steak nachos with the sauce. Plus, they used actual nacho cheese—it was fantastic. I also had a chicken Arepa, which was just as fantastic. Nothing to complain about. Customer service was excellent. Food came out fast. Highly recommend." - A satisfied Facebook reviewer 🌟
📢 From the Truck 🌲
Born and raised in the North Carolina mountains, AJ and Eli came to Raleigh for none other than the NC State Wolfpack. This team's longevity in the food industry exceeds 15 years, with the last 4 years managing Raleigh landmark, The Alley on Hillsborough Street.
After The Alley closed, AJ and Eli jumped into the food truck business. AJ and Eli purchased an old SnapOn 🔧 tool truck and gutted everything to the studs. Locally supplied from Wilson's Store & Sales, Inc. in Spivey's Corner, NC, the truck was rebuilt down to every detail with a signature dashboard created from reclaimed bowling lane wood from The Alley.
After countless hours and multiple roadblocks, they were one day from finalizing their permit when the engine blew. They assembled the troops and in less than 60 working hours they completely rebuilt the entire Chevy 454 Big Block engine (hence the origin of the food truck's name, 454 Grill). We look forward to serving you!
