Serving out of a recycled shipping container that opens using hydraulics run on vegetable oil, sold 350 waffle sandwiches within four hours of opening on June 23.
Customers can watch their food being made then chill out in a large grassy area.
BOXD is located at the corner of Carlsbad Village Boulevard and State Street. It's hours are 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. on weekdays and 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekends.
When a few of us from Patch visited BOXD on Wednesday, they were only able to take cash but anticipated having their credit card machine up and running in the coming days.
Our favorite waffle sandwiches included:
lemon cream, strawberries and blackberries
nutella and banana
slow roasted pulled pork
old fashioned peanut butter and jelly
Next time I'd like a try a combo of peanut butter and nutella with bananas and strawberries. It's not on the menu but would be a killer combination in my opinion.
One of Carlsbad Patch's twitter followers gave us a review on the the chicken with arugula, Brie, and garlic aioli waffle sandwich: "Loved the filling, wished the waffle was crispier."
BOXD owner James Markham said he plans to open another location in Encinitas and is also opening the Pie Project, a pizza place with a Chipolte-like concept that stacks three shipping containers together to allow customers to order from the inside. The Pie Project's first location is set for Hillcrest.
Have you tried BOXD? What do you think of the concept and food?
