Phoenix went food-truck-crazy in 2011, with no fewer than half a dozen of them tooling around town at any given moment. The granddaddy of them all is still Short Leash, the "mobile hot dog" eatery that appears at such disparate locations/events as the Downtown Phoenix Public Market, Stinkweeds, First Fridays, and various gallery openings and private functions. In other words, Short Leash is in high demand. The hot dogs (provided by local fave Schreiner's) are uniformly excellent, and the creations that Short Leash has come up with (all named after the owners' favorite dogs) are clever and delicious (our favorite: Moki — with green chiles, pinto beans, cheese, and mayo). To boot, Short Leash lets customers submit pictures of their dogs, who may just get a special named after them. Be sure to follow these guys on Twitter and Facebook to find where they are at all times, because that is where Short Leash also excels: its expert utilization of social media. While your lame friends are clogging up Facebook and Twitter with superfluous information about how they're hungover or how they just cleaned their refrigerator or how they cried during the last Harry Potter film, Short Leash is updating its status with the kind of info we really need, like where can we get a hot dog — now! We're glad to have Short Leash on the prowl.

A delicious, unique spin on the classic hot dog stand! Short Leash Dogs has such amazing variety for a food truck, with all their meat (or veggie) choices like the spicy beer dog, chicken, or bratwurst, and their topping varieties like mango chutney, pepperoncinis, pinto beans and sauerkraut (which you could put all on one dog if you wanted to with their mix-and-match options). I usually go for one of their combo specials, my favorite being the Aiko -- a sweet and spicy combo of mango chutney, fresh cilantro, and jalapenos.
Bonus: they're often stationed in the Valley Youth Theater parking lot, just a couple blocks from my apartment. A perfect, cheap, and tasty lunch break when I'm not in the mood for another sandwich!
