Bada Bing Top Food Trucks in DC

Bada Bing

The food truck industry in has grown exponentially over the last 5 years; D.C. alone boasts more than 200 active food trucks. But only one of those trucks offers you authentic, mouth-watering spiedies and cheesesteak sandwiches - Bada Bing.

Established in 2010 by Nichloas and Venus Terzella, Bada Bing celebrated their fifth anniversary on October 28th. So what is it about this restaurant on wheels that keeps customers coming back?

Let's start with the basics, like what exactly a spiedie is. According to, the name is derived from the Italian word "spiedini," which refers to anything cooked on a skewer. This unique technique began appearing in Binghamton, NY in the early 1900s at the peak of Italian immigration. Today, spiedies are made by cooking meat (typically pork, chicken or lamb) marinated in a blend of herbs and spices over an open flame. Those cubes can then either be eaten right off the skewer, in a salad or wrapped in soft, fresh Italian bread.

Is your mouth watering yet? It should be. Spiedies are so good that there is an annual Spiedie Fest in Binghamton, NY and BuzzFeed referred to it as "a perfect and important sandwich".

So while they may be common in upstate New York, we're 300 miles from Binghamton making Bada Bing the premiere location to enjoy gourmet spiedies and juicy cheesesteak sandwiches.

Executive check, owner and co-founder Nicholas Terzella was born in upstate New York and formed a love for spiedies at a young age. At 16, he had already begun cooking at local Italian restaurants. He later went on to study at The New England Culinary Institute and his resume includes fine dining restaurants in Napa Valley and Palm Beach and a private chef gig for an actress in Manhattan. Now Nicholas drives around sharing a tasty piece of his childhood with everyone who visits Bada Bing.

Stop by and grab yourself a speidie sangweech or salad with toppings like The Bing - fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and fresh basil; Kendall's Favorite - buffalo sauce, bleu cheese, tomatoes and lettuce; The "Big Pete" - bacon bits, lettuce, tomato and chipotle mayo; or Joey's Special - barbecue glaze, cheddar cheese, bacon bits and caramelized onions. None of those sound good? Fugetaboutit. Go with the O.G. - just meat.
