That’s right! My pup, Biscuit, is officially the face of Short Leash Hotdogs for this week. She’s a star…or at least a really tasty treat! Okay that sounded weird. This isn’t China. Let’s back it up.
Brad and Kat, the owners of Short Leash Hotdogs, started serving Phoenix foodies out of a food truck with the hopes that their love for man’s best friend, local ingredients, and great food would blossom into a thriving business.
And it has. Any time I’ve been to an event where food trucks are involved, Short Leash is always there…and there’s always a line.
Because how can you say “no” to a twist on a classic American comfort food…or really anything topped with bacon, which happens frequently at this particular food truck. All of their dogs are served not in a bun, but wrapped in fresh naan, and you’ll find ingredients like Swiss cheese, pinto beans, arugala, mango chutney, and peanut butter on these dogs.
Flavor explosion – yes! Check our their amazing menu!
And on top of that, they make Short Leash a personal experience by naming each of their hotdogs after their friend’s and family’s furry better halves. Oliver and Igby, two “dogs” on the menu, are Kat and Brad’s two dogs at home.
They invite Short Leash fans to send in pictures of their dogs to inspire their “Feature Dogs of the Week”…which is how the Biscuit was born.
This week, the Biscuit is your choice of hotdog (they have regular, spicy beer hot, beef, chicken, and veggie weiners) wrapped in naan and topped with fried green tomatoes, bacon, iceburg lettuce, and bleu cheese…and for their extended menu at Sit…Stay on Friday night, they’ll be serving sliders on–what else!–biscuits in my pup’s honor!
I’m so excited that my favorite face in world inspired Brad and Kat this week. I’m so excited that this lovable, quirky, spastic love of an animal came into my life.
And you best believe I’m excited to try the Biscuit this week!
