It’s looking like 21st & Union is becoming the new center of the Central District universe. It’s got a radio station, a concert-holding bike shop, and the coolest movie theater in the city.
And now it also has a hot dog cart.
Neighborhood caterer extraordinaire Chef Brenda Lee has teamed up with Lisa Brown to launch our first dedicated hotdog cart in the neighborhood. They found the cart on Craig’s List, filled out 32 pages of mobile food permit paperwork with the city(!), and now their officially up and going on the corner of 21st & Union.
Their menu includes the East Coast Dog, the Chicago Dog, the Your Call Dog, Kids Dog, and Veggie Dog. For $7 you get the dog, chips, and a drink, or $4 for kids.
The schedule isn’t totally fixed yet, but they’ll be out there from 11am to dusk today, Saturday, and Sunday.
You can find the cart on the southwest corner of the intersection, in the parking lot of the auto shop there. Check it out and leave tell us all what you think on their review page.
Update: As Jean notes below, they’re experiencing some technical difficulties with the grill and aren’t serving hotdogs today. Check back on Saturday.
