Rolling Lion Food Truck Debuts New Menu, Weekly Hours For Fall Semester

Penn State Campus Catering’s Rolling Lion Food Truck is officially back on campus this semester — this time with a brand new menu and a regular set of hours.

The food truck, which was sparsely used at THON and outside the former location of the Mix last year, will now travel around campus three days a week.

The Rolling Lions is currently testing out numerous locations around campus such as:

  • Along Pollock Road, either in front of McAllister Building or between Willard Building and Schwab Auditorium, typically from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
  • Between Chambers Building and Pasquerilla Spiritual Center on Allen Road, typically from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
  • In front of the Shields Building before home football games. It usually opens for business a few hours before each game and stays open until kickoff.

The Rolling Lion’s menu, which formerly consisted of football-inspired sandwiches, now features rotating options that change week to week. For example, this week’s offerings include tacos on house-made corn tortillas, a smoked pulled pork sandwich, and Tuk Tuk salad — leafy greens and a host of veggies topped with peanuts and a coconut curry vinaigrette.

Starbucks coffee, frappuccinos, and cold brew are served at the truck as well. You can also order Creamery ice cream, sandwiches, and Snickers ice cream bars if you need to cool off and are truly too lazy to walk a few minutes to the Creamery.

Just like most dining establishments on campus, the Rolling Lion is a cashless operation. However, it does accept credit cards, LionCash, and meal points.

If you plan on hosting a student event and have money to burn, the truck even offers catering options. Hosts can organize a customized menu with the truck ahead of time for on-campus events of at least 50 people. The Rolling Lion’s catering does come with a hefty $500 setup fee, so it’s probably not the best option to ease your everyday cravings.

Because the Rolling Lion truly has no permanent location, be sure to check its Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram pages for more information on its current menu and whereabouts.
