We’ll keep repeating over and over again how great it would be if someone opened a dedicated food truck court in one of the myriad of useless land plots around CenPho (Hint, hint, developers!). In the meantime, tracking food trucks around town is a bit of a detective game. One of our faves, Short Leash Hot Dogs, pops up regularly at Farmers’ Markets and in downtown Tempe. But it’s difficult to know where to find them on a Saturday evening when you’re craving a spicy jalapeno-cheese dog.
For Valentine’s weekend, the Short Leash dogmobile is rolling over to Medlock Plaza at Central and Camelback Rd. — home to Smeeks and Stinkweeds. Short Leash owners Brad and Kat Moore will be set up in the parking lot from 6-8 p.m. on Saturday, February 12 and next Saturday the 19th.
The mobile dog stand’s menu includes 3 types of Schreiner’s weiners, brats, veggie dogs and “corn-pups” made with jalapeno and cheese stuffed hot dogs. Each can be customized with your choice of toppings, or you can partake in a pre-designed special like the Igby with cole slaw, blue cheese and BBQ sauce. After downing a dog, pop on over to boutique candy shop, Smeeks, for some Moon Pies or handmade sea salt caramels. Hungry yet?
