Introducing The Ultimate Veggie Dog for Lent


Are you giving up meat for Lent and resisting the temptation to visit The Wiener to indulge in one of our award-winning original all beef hot dogs, bratwurst or sausages? Devoted Greasy Wiener fans can still satisfy that craving and not have to worry about cheating during Lent! We’d like to introduce you to The Ultimate Veggie Dog for Lent “The Hippie”.

The Hippie is a soy based dog that is topped with yellow mustard, our in-house cheese blend, grilled onions, fresh tomatoes and a dill pickle spear all on a tasty bakery fresh bun. This is a perfect solution for those practicing Lent and want to visit us on those infamous Food Truck Friday sor for the every day wiener fan who is a practicing vegetarian or vegan (ask for it without the cheese!) Our soy, NON GMO based vegan dog is also kosher, too! Need it to be gluten-free? Ask for it without the bun, we can make it however the way you want it to suit your lifestyle and eating habits.

Pair it with our fan favorite garlic and parsley fries “Dragotta Fries” for a winning combo that is the answer to curing your hunger! Don’t let the name of our food truck confuse you for some of the healthier and lighter options you can have! We can’t wait to feed your faces!

Of course we’ll be there serving along with other awesome food trucks serving our award-winning original handmade hot dogs and sausages. It’s a perfect event for the whole family to enjoy a part of the eastside culture and life of Los Angeles!

Later at dinner time and late night snacking (7PM-10PM) we’ll also be a part of a new Saturday food truck night that is part of the celebration of the newly declared “Hollywood Theater Row” as an official place named by the city! We’ll be kicking off the new event in front of the Complex Theatre who will also be launching a new show “The Girl is Still Here”.  

Nearby at the Blank Theater will be featuring the popular “Sons of the Prophet”. Don’t forget to follow Hollywood Theater Row to learn more about the other performances that night!
