In the evening, the sausages come out of their naan-wrapped homes to star in a few hearty entrées. There are jumbo-size spicy Sicilian sausages, wrapped and baked in puffed pastry, covered in mashed potatoes and gravy, and served alongside very good grilled vegetables. And if you get only as far as "bacon-wrapped cheddar brats" on the clipboard menu before flagging your server down, you'll be glad to know the two plump specimens are as good as they sound — salty and smoky with a creamy, cheesy center — served with an acceptable warm German potato salad and red pepper gravy.

For dessert, there is pie. Because what better to follow up the American experience of hot dog consumption than a homemade slice of the good ol' U.S. of A. in flavors such as chocolate cream, key lime, and, of course, classic apple. The Moores partnered with another food truck, Mamma Toledo's, to make it happen, with owner and baker Tonya Saidi setting up shop in a tiny adjoining space aptly named The Pie Hole.

The setup is the latest flash of inspiration from a couple who always seem to be at the forefront of the next big thing, with both their food truck (which still roams the streets) and their unique restaurant that adds yet another much-needed creative spark to an area that's slowly waking from a colorless slumber.

I am allergic to dogs.  Their smell makes me nauseous.  Could never have one in my home nor go to a home that has one.  Picking up crap sickens me too.  So, maybe I am in the minority.  And, I hear all the time:  dogs are our children.  Children grow up, can be toilet trained, go to college and are productive.  Dogs.  Not.


I have never, nor would I ever eat a hot dog.  UGH

@naoma I'm certain any dog could be trained sufficiently to earn a degree from ASU, one of the easy ones like Comm or Business or Sociology. I am absolutely certain of this.


@chris.m.robert @naoma Chris, I just got in from a concert at the museum and your letter made me laugh so hard.  Thanks for the great humor of your post.  ASU.  That is too funny for words.  And, I do believe  your are right in your comment!.
