The local mobile food cart business goes beyond taco trucks (last week's cover feature in the Times), of course. For going on two months now, photographer Michael Juiliano has been serving up all-beef hot dogs all over town from his mobile stand. Besides your standard dog ($3) — available with chili, onion, relish, sauerkraut, slaw and all the typical condiments — Hot Dog Mike, as his business card reads, offers daily specials (usually in the $3 to $4 range) like beer brats, Polish dogs, hot links and specialty hot dogs. Lately, he's been offering a Sriracha dog, which comes with diced cucumber and onion, mayonnaise and Sriracha (a spicy sauce). He's also done one he called a Razorback dog, with bacon, coleslaw and BBQ sauce.
Juiliano's regular stops include Best Car Wash on Bowman, downtown near DHS and near the Fountain Bar on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings, but the best way to find him is via Twitter at twitter.com/hotdog_mike. He updates daily. He can also be reached at 416-4778.
