There is no shortage of food trucks in and around the Evansville area, serving up a wide variety of delicious cuisine - burgers, BBQ, Asian, grilled chees, pizza, and everything in between. One of the most popular, though, is not a truck at all. It's got no engine, windows, or doors - but what it does have is two wheels and some of the best hot dogs you'll ever eat. And soon, someone new will be slangin' those dawgs.

There is a reason (several reasons, actually) that hot dogs are America's #1 street food...

  1. They are really popular - just about everyone loves them.
  2. They are affordable and available just about everywhere.
  3. They are so versatile - there are so many ways to "dress up" a hot dog.
  4. They are freaking yummy!

In the case of River City Dawgs, another reason for their popularity is the man behind the stand. Kent Greathouse has been on his farewell tour after announcing that he is selling his beloved hot dog stand.

Who is the new owner? Will they continue to serve up those tasty hot dogs, as River City Dawgs or by some other name? I reckon we will find out soon.
