Chubby Wieners has been on my radar since before the concept of "Food Truck 50" became a reality. But it was another situation of wrong place, wrong time last summer. A few times were so close I could smell 'em.
Knowing they hit Solemn Oath with some regularity, I had my sights set on that venue for a score. But that's quite a hike from me, so imagine my delight when Fischman's Liquors announced these guys in tonight's line up.
I had a nice chat at the truck about the history of some of the now-famous truck stops and their philosophy on rolling the streets. And now that I scored the truck, I definitely need to head to their restaurant for a Bizarro mission.
It was no question that I needed to get the Chubby Dog, traditional Chicago style. I mean, come on! All beef dog in natural casing with the famous Chicago toppings? How could you not?
And it was everything I would have hoped for in a dog. This coming from a person who doesn't even care for hot dogs. In a word: delicious.
Oh, and how funny is it that Chubby Wieners was here with Beavers Donuts? I mean, come on!
Looking forward to that Bizarro mission guys!
Follow That Truck!
