Saskatoon’s first food truck hits the streets

Saskatoon’s first food truck Disco Dogs Gourmet Food Truck has officially set up shop and is ready to serve.

“We’re really pleased that the pilot program has passed as we’ve been waiting on this for the past year,” said Chuck Prongua co-founder and operator of the mobile eatery.

Disco Dogs will be open for lunch from roughly 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., for the dinner rush from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and after hours slot for people leaving the bars, from 12 a.m. until 3 a.m.

Prongua said they’re expecting a massive rush of customers who have been waiting to try some of Saskatoon’s new street-side delicacies.

“Being that we’re the first ones, I think it’s safe to say that we’re going to be — I don’t want to say overwhelmed — but we’re going to busy for sure.” said Prongua. “It’s a novelty, right? Everyone wants to try something out that’s new and I our menu is completely different than anything else that’s happening in Saskatoon.”

As the co-founder of one of the city’s first, and currently only food truck, he’s excited.

“I’m pumped, I’ve been looking forward to this for a year—since we gave birth to the idea,” he said.

Disco Dogs Gourmet Food Truck’s menu features a number of gourmet hotdogs including the Low Rider, which contains diced tomatoes, peppers, green onions, lettuce, sour cream, salsa with crushed nacho cheese tortilla chips and the Texas Shocker, made with Bacon, crunchy peanut butter, Texas style barbeque sauce and diced red onions.

On its first day, Disco Dogs Gourmet Food Truck was set up on 22nd Street East near the 2nd Avenue South intersection.
