Do you like hot dogs?  With more than 45 percent of the 5,000 votes cast in our recent poll, it’s apparent that Hamilton, Ontario loves the Willy Dog Hot Dog Cart!  We are proud to announce that they are Mobile Cuisine’s 2014 HOT DOG VENDOR OF THE YEAR.

We are happy to celebrate this great news with Jim Bontaine, the owner of the Willy Dog Cart.  He’s made McMaster University his year-round home rain or shine and the students deserve a huge shout out!  They overwhelmingly supported Bontaine and his hot dog creations.  That’s the type of news that keeps us interested in the mobile food community.  The community!

To accommodate his diverse student clientele, he’s created over 30 toppings for his dogs.  There’s something for everyone from every corner of the globe to cover your veggie, beef or halal chicken dog.

As the Spring term starts, we wonder what the future holds for this McMaster University institution.  Will we see more colorful carts around town?  Will there be over 40 toppings by Fall term?  Whatever comes next, we can’t wait!  All we know is that Bontaine and Willy Dogs will be there to serve the best hot dog dishes!  Based on Willy Dog lovers, we think a road trip is in order to try as many of those creative toppings on every dog.  We heard there would be a riot if he ran out of barbeque chips!  Hmmm…  I’ll leave my pitchfork at home and bring extra napkins with my appetite.

Rounding out our top 5 Hot Dog Vendors of the Year are: 

2. Frank Gourmet Hot Dogs – Buffalo, NY – 30%

3. American Wiener – Tampa, FL – 14%

4. Short Leash Hot Dogs – Phoenix, AZ – 4%

5. Good Dog Hot Dogs – Houston, TX – 3%

Hungry for more?

We’ll take a deeper look into Willy Dog in a feature article later this week.

NYC_Hotdog_cartNEW YORK CITY, NY - Would you like some mustard … and an arrest warrant on that?

A Manhattan hot dog vendor is on the run after accumulating $300,000 in unpaid fines for various violations, the New York Post reports.

By obtaining fake IDs and altering social security numbers to obtain new Health Department licenses, the dirty dog known as Ehab Elsayed or Mohamed Elkholy or Mohamed Elsayed (the list of names is probably longer) has been able to stay on the streets.

He’s had his licenses yanked four times between 2005 and 2012, but that hasn’t stopped him from peddling  sketchy wieners. His footlong record of unsanitary salesmanship includes everything from contamination to selling on restricted Midtown streets.

This isn’t the NYPD’s first “ketch-up” with Mr. Elsayed. He was busted in 2012 for felony forgery and tampering with public records, but the charges were reduced and the case was sealed for unknown reasons, according to a Manhattan Supreme Court Clerk.

Mr. Elsayed must really love selling his precious wieners, since he was arrested again in January 2013 for vending without a DOH-license. After missing his June court date, the police issued a new warrant and are on the hunt.

Next time you’re craving a street-treat, choose your hot dogs wisely.
