You MUST taste this under-the-radar food truck’s crispy, delicious tots for yourself


Call us “Crazy,” but these tots just may change your life.

We may have stumbled upon some of the most AMAZING tots you’ll ever taste.

We stopped by the Crazy Redhead Canteen food truck during the Miami County Food Truck Competition and Rally last weekend and discovered deliciousness.

The food truck specializes in gourmet grilled cheese and sandwiches made on fresh grilled Italian bread. 

But we heard people raving about the tater tots, and decided to try for ourselves.

We tried the Trailer Tots ($7), which are a large order of the most crispy tots you’ll find loaded with delicious pulled barbecue pork, cheddar cheese, sour cream and chives.

Three of us, each with our own fork, inhaled the basket of tots literally in a minute.

Another option for tot devotees? The Hot Totties ($7), which are topped with mozzarella cheese, homemade spicy ranch dressing, tomatoes, green onion and buffalo dust and topped with barbecue pulled pork for $1.99 extra.
