SuperMario’s Streetfood Adventure: “Mega Hot Dog’s: Juaritos Style”?
A HOTDOG! How can you Screw up a Hotdog?
I have had my share of some bad food, but this is a first .
This week we head down to I-10 and Horizon Blvd. Just passed the truck stops.
Most People in El Paso have heard or read about the Juarez foot long. If not let me explain , Picture this … : It’s a combination of everything that is arms reach in a mobile kitchen .A beacon wrapped foot long, smothered in processed nacho cheese sauce , pinto beans (chili beans if you’re lucky), diced tomatoes, onions, jalapeños ,radishes ,chopped pickles and cabbage covered with mayonnaise , ketchup and mustard on grilled butter toasted bun. You get the picture... It’s a Foot long with everything!
Well here’s my review of the “Mega Hot Dogs: Juaritos Style”
This just didn’t do it for me. Let me start by saying that the tow from behind makeshift kitchen was truly a work of Art. It grabbed my attention and looked clean. The “Picture” of the Hotdog on the side of this kitchen was truly a sight to be savored!
I place my order, the ONLY thing that they have listed. A Juarez Hotdog!
Thinking it was going to take a few minutes to prepare, I head down to my truck, Only to be stopped by a heavy Spanish accented “Hey Ju…..Is ready”... It took a total of 15 seconds to make this “Mega Dog”? I’m thinking to myself, “This is Service”. I order a Mexican Bottled Orange Fanta … and pay $6.00 for this mighty meal.
BUT to my surprise, I get a cold, lacking flavor, bean juice soaked (only about 10 beans) discolored covered in mayonnaise, ketchup and mustard Foot Long.
How the Hell can you screw up a HOT DOG?!? Well, MEGA DOG did! It was a MEGA Disaster! Look I’m not a connoisseur of Hotdogs, BUT how the HELL can you Screw one up? It doesn’t even LOOK like the picture on the side of your truck !
From a scale of 10… This place gets a MEGA 3! Only because the Orange Fanta was the only thing that saved my taste buds. Don’t believe me, YOU be the judge. (But don’t say it didn’t tell JU )
You have a place you think I should try , Drop me a line : firstname.lastname@example.org
Cheers and Bottoms –Up!
BTW: I did talk to the "Cook". But wanted to offer me another one of these Things .. NO Thanks!
