Hot dogs are one of the most iconic food truck items, and in some cases can be pretty boring. But at the Angry Wiener food truck, they offer more than just a wiener with a squiggle of ketchup and mustard. Track down the Angry Wiener, and sample some of their interesting takes on this classic American cookout food.
This food truck has a great mix of both commonplace and inventive hot dog toppings, which will please purists and foodies alike. The buns are really tasty too (an important component in the making of a good hot dog) and are soft and golden, almost reminiscent of Texas toast. The Angry Wiener’s signature hot dog is also its namesake. Ordering a dog “Angry Wiener style” consists of an all meat wiener topped with chili, bacon, jalapenos, onions, sriracha ketchup, and spicy brown mustard. It is satsifyingly spicy. Or try a West Virginia spin, piling on chili, coleslaw, diced onions and yellow mustard by getting the Coal Miner. Add some crunchy beer-battered fries and you have a complete meal.
For those who are more adventurous, there are some daring dogs as well. The Hounddog sounds totally crazy enough to work (peanut butter and bacon jam!) and I loved the BLT version with bacon, lettuce, tomato, and dripping with sriracha mayo. Another fun take, the Peppy Pup, (deep fried pepperoni, banana peppers, marinara, and mozzarella) is messy but so delicious. Vegetarians are covered too, with the ability to substitute a veggie dog in the place of a regular wiener on any sandwich.
Culinary Clue: Create a custom dog with your choice of toppings! But if you want a specific topping or signature hot dog, make sure to get there early. The truck is so popular that is often sells out of the most-beloved items, so get there soon and order up the dog of your dreams!
