Hippy the Dog: Delish
I work in the Natick area and had seen an interesting hot dog truck camped out in front of the Hampton Inn on Speen Street. Did a Google search and came up with their site... http://hippythedog.com Went on Friday for lunch with a few co-workers and will be going back- for sure.
Ordered a number 7 with spicy fries and a lime rickey--for $6!!!. And could have happily had any other dog on their menu. Also serve burgers and chicken sandwiches...Great service (by owners) and a good alternative to our cafeteria.
I promised I'd spread the word to my fellow 'Hounds...Enjoy.
Nothing like a hot dog served out of the back of a truck!
Here's a corrected link:
BTW, the menu lists the dog as being $5.75, the spicy fries as being $2.50 and the lime rickey as being $2.75-$3.75, so how'd you do all three for $6? (In fact, they charge $0.25 each even for ketchup and mustard! This place ain't cheap, folks!)
$5.75 is way overpriced. And to charge extra for mustard is wrong. They don't give the brand or if it's a natural casing dog or not. A place in my area served jumbo quarter pound dogs for close to 4 bucks. Good dogs , but they went out of business in large part because they were considered too expensive. But at least they didn't charge extra for basic condiments like mustard, relish, onions, or sauerkraut. Will be interesting to see if this place survives.
Thanks mbasnack. I emailed tham and John responded this afternoon. Apparently they had some mechanical problems with the truck so there missed a few days. They
are still in front of the parking lot at the Hampton Inn Monday through Friday from 11:00-3:00. I will definitely try them tomorrow or Thursday.
