Hillsborough Street Menu Changes

Over the next week or so, the Hillsborough Street menu will undergo some changes.

I had a visit from the Health Inspector, and they made some "suggestions." I did very well on my inspection, but they clarified some points for me. The inspector even said some of the laws were written in the Stone Age and didn't make sense any more, but they still have to enforce them.

The following change makes me very sad.

Based on the small amounts that I have been selling, and how I have been preparing the The Buffalo Dog and the Flippo Dog to order, both will be coming off the Hillsborough Street menu. Both items will still be used at the night and weekend events for the cart where I sell and hold a large amount of both items.

I will come up with some different toppings and items that I think will work.

Thank you so much for continuing to come and check out what I am doing on Hillsborough Street and at the different venues that I go to!

Truck Pics!

Here are a few truck pictures that the manufacturer has sent me! Most of the mechanical systems are installed now. More pictures to come!


Just a quick update on everything!

I just wanted to let everyone know that the Flippo Dog is a huge hit! I is most likely going to be a regular part of the menu at most events! It is completely over the top!

Things are going really well on the 2600 block of Hillsborough Street across from D.H. Hill Library.
That will continue to be a regular location for lunch.

As of this week, I have all the permits set for the City of Durham. I working on adding regular weekly locations. The first location is most likely going to be the Saturday morning Farmers Market at Durham Central Park. I am hoping on being out there this coming Saturday morning, October 13!

I have more dates at Lonerider Brewing Company in Raleigh lined up as well as dates at Chatham Hill Winery in Morrisville.

This coming Sunday October 14th, the Gastrodog Cart will be at the food truck rodeo at Wheels Family Fun Park in Durham.

Stay tuned as I am adding more locations and dates, and of course that shiny new food truck is right around the corner!

Thanks to everyone! I am having a blast meeting you, and serving up the gastrodogs!
