Food Truck Fight: Windy City RH vs. Sidewalk Sweets

What’s the best food truck in Washington? You tell us.


Sure, hot dogs are considered typical street-food fare, but Windy City Red Hots owners Angel and Pia Miranda upped the ante with their alarm-red truck parked in an Ashburn garden-store parking lot. They imported all of their ingredients from Chicago to replicate that city's famous dog: The dogs are from Vienna Beef, the buns have poppy seeds, the relish is neon-green, and you'll get a pickle, onions, mustard, sport peppers, and celery salt on top. There are also Italian-beef sandwiches and pizza puffs. The competition is Sidewalk Sweetsations, which, yes, has cupcakes. (What bakery doesn't?) But there are also "cuptails," a cross between cupcakes and cocktails—think rum-and-Coke or a Long Beach punch—and "cup-pies," whose flavors include sweet-potato and Key Lime.
