I think we should get rid of the specials page and use a system (which I am working on) to tell people what is on the truck everyday and things that are special. (please put daily or special next to each item)
I am trying to be more descriptive about the food and I have done some research. Please read over what I have so far and let me know if it is accurate. You can edit it here. I will also ask some questions in (bold) where I need clarification.
