Battle of the Food Truck Hot Dogs: Epic vs. Short Leash
You've seen gourmet food trucks all over town. Each one has its own different spin, giving a unique twist to casual street eats. For the most part, each better-known truck has its own specialty... except two of them. There is a pair of trucks prowling the Valley offering gourmet hot dogs. Since the menus differ a bit, we decided to try each truck's take on the regional favorite Sonoran dog. Let's take a bite and find out who is top dog.
The Sonoran Dog from Epic Hot Dogs
In This Corner: Epic Hot Dogs's Sonoran Dog
Epic is the newer of the two hot dog trucks in town. One day, owner Paul Cioczyk got tired of the daily 9-to-5 grind. He got himself a truck, painted it bright blue, and hasn't looked back. Epic's Sonoran Dog is a Schreiner's hot dog wrapped in bacon, topped with pinto beans, chopped tomatoes, onions, mustard, jalapeño sauce, and mayo.
