Aqui Con El Nene is a fast food restaurant that is truly fast - as in on wheels.  A food truck in northeast Tucson, El Nene is famous (locally so) for beating out a couple dozen other chains to become a finalist for Best Hot Dog according to Rachel Ray.

Being a food truck, El Nene offers an expansive list of Mexican food besides hot dogs.  In fact, there are only two hot dogs on the menu, both Sonoran Style.  Sonoran Style dogs have green salsa, jalapeño, radish, mustard, avocado, mayo, pinto beans, tomato, Cotija cheese.  The "hot dog"is the base version and comes fully loaded.  The hot dog chipilon is the second and differs only in that the bun is toasted and cheese is added.

Here are one of each.  The hot dog on the left and the chipilon version on the right.  Or is it the other way around?  I ate them and I still don't know.  Actually, the one on the right had the toasted bun so let's call that the chipilon version. 

The dogs were great.  Very very tasty.  Very creamy and cheesy and mushy and warm and hot doggy and salty and sweet.  A full on fiesta en mi boca.  I am not sure I would drive all the way to Tucson to have one, but the locals there are lucky to have such a tasty fast food treat.

In a fit of marketing cleverness, Taco Bell released a new TV campaign featuring real life spokesmen to promote their new breakfast menu.  The catch?  They're all named Ronald McDonald.  Genius.


Check this video out from Yahoo Food.  Clever combinations of well-known fast food.  The Chalupanator sounds disgusting.

Thanks to reader Steve B. for the find!


I checked out the base chicken sandwich at Sonic the other day.  On the menu this is just called the Classic Chicken Sandwich, grilled variety.  It was pretty much your basic fast food chicken sandwich from a restaurant that specializes in burgers:

The chicken sandwich is no frills.  It is delivered on a nice Cibatta bun but is otherwise plainly adorned with mayo, lettuce and tomato.  The chicken breast itself is unappetizing when examined naked.  The entire sandwich is dry and blah.  Very much like the McDonald's chicken sandwich reviewed here and here.

But for whatever reason, Sonic's chicken entry does not come with cheese or bacon.  This makes the entire sandwich seem even more plain and the chicken just that much more lonely.

I recommend Sonic for the burgers, or the hot dogs.  And of course for the tots.  But skip the chicken until they come up with something better.
