"Original Bacon Wrapped Hot Dog" food truck?

My friend and I were down in Normal Heights to hear some music at Lestats, Saturday night. We're from the L.A. area so we're not all that knowledgeable about that many S.D. restaurants/food vendors. Leaving the show around 11pm we saw a white food truck parked on Adams that at first glance appeared to be one of those common food trucks with the usual goodies of tacos, burritos, et. al. But near the front of the trailer (it was towed and left by a truck, I presume) it was printed "Original Bacon Wrapped Hot Dogs" in larger letters in red paint on the white trailer. I was wondering if anyone had any insight into the best items and if the quality was very good? Seeing as we had a two hour drive back I was reluctant to experiment. We're down here to check out various music artists we like fairly regularly (every two months or so...), so good food info is helpful. We ate at Pizzeria Bruno Napoletano earlier which we heard about on this board and it's a winner alright. Thanks!

  1. Are you referring to Manny's Taco cart?
    I saw him there last week but didn't get to try it.

      Thanks "uberkelly," but Manny's doesn't appear to be the same vendor. It's a fairly big white trailer outfitted to make hot food that has tires and has a hitch to hook it up to a truck. It mentions various types of Mexican style meats, but near the front of the trailer it has the logo about the hot dogs.
