On a roll like always is the ubiquitous Spike Mendelsohn. Despite what was perhaps a bad choice of words earlier this month, Mendelsohn’s first food truck lunched today without a glitch in sights.

Sixth & Rye has been popular before the deli truck even first hit the streets. You can think of it as DC’s First Kosher Deli on Wheels with Sixth & I, Chef Spike and Chef Malcolm Mitchell behind the venture. It even has 1,755 followers on Twitter already, where the truck goes by @SixthandRye.

What looks to be a favorite item is the Signature Smoked Corned Beef Sandwich – Cured and Smoked Beef Brisket on Rye with Original House Hot Mustard.

What did today look like? According to Twitter “Hundreds of people came out for our opening day! Sadly,we’re cutting off the line for today, but find us next week.” Sounds like the line for Sixth & Rye might be competing with the line at Shake Shack. Eat & enjoy!
