You might get some confused looks if you tell people you’re ordering from Delray Cafe, but just say “the food truck behind Nickel City” and you should see some eyes light up. They’re background characters that deserve a more prominent role, with a focused and straightforward menu with things like burgers, wings, coney dogs, and tater tots. The burgers - technically considered “sliders” - feature mustard, onions, and pickles on a steamed bun. Wings here are sold by the pound - If, like us, you’re not much of a chicken mathematician, that’s about six wings per pound. At Delray, they’re not trying to do anything fancy. Just simple wings, burgers, and coney dogs done well.
