Grab a plate from Lincoln’s newest food trailer, Mary Ellen’s Food for the Soul, and you may find yourself comforted, satisfied, and maybe even a little bit loved.

“I went to Mary Ellen’s today and boy oh boy let me tell you I brought some napkins and didn’t want to use them cuz i couldn’t stop licking my fingers. Don’t miss out on some delicious food people and the customer service OUTSTANDING!! Thank you for fixing me a plate .

“Tried the pulled pork with potato salad and greens at a recent Farmers Market and the sides alone made the whole meal worth it. Easily the best collard greens I’ve ever eaten. Can’t wait to try the catfish, mac and cheese, and literally anything else they want to give me next time around.
