Bossier City Stays At Home: Food Trucks to the Rescue!

With Bossier City doing its part to stay at home during the COVID-19 outbreak, there’s nothing quite like a treat for lunch or dinner from your favorite food truck.

Home cooking is great, but sometime’s The Cook needs a break!

Sam Baade owns the Hot Dawg Hut and is head of the SBC Food Truck Coalition. He says local food trucks are ready to roll and serve.

“We are a group of the legally licensed and insured food trucks,” Baade tells BossierNow. “Unfortunately, there are only a few of us still kickin’ right now, but we all offer curbside pickup.”

But the Hut is more than just dawgs. They have burgers (BossierNow taste tested and approved!) as well as turkey dogs, veggie dogs, and a keto option for burgers (on a bed of lettuce).

You can text your order to 402-616-8366 or you can also preorder online at thehotdawghut.com. They have a runner on site to take orders curbside.

Here is the Hot Dawg Hut’s schedule for this week (4/6/2020):

Monday 5-8 Tiburon neighborhood
Tuesday 5-8 Golden Meadows
Wednesday 5-730 Greenacres Village Apts
Thursday 5-8 Gardens of Southgate

“We are offering our services curbside and you don’t have to wait to order,” Baade says on Facebook. “You can preorder online any time and just specify the date/location/time of pickup.”

On the day BossierNow visited, a runner came up to our vehicle — maintaining a safe distance — took cash as payment for our texted-in order, retrieved our food and placed it into the back of our SUV.

Simple. Fast and socially distanced. It was a welcome break from our standard shelter in place provisions.

Meanwhile, Dough Boys Pizza is rolling around Bossier City and is “always available,” according to an email to BossierNow.  The truck offers some tempting looking pizza as well as Shiver Shack Shaved Ice out of the same trailer.  For more info email [email protected]

And for something sweet, look for Streetcar Snoballs.

“We serve New Orleans style snoballs (not snow cones) from our ‘Streetcar’ in Shreveport, Bossier and surrounding areas. If you check out our Facebook or Instagram pages you can see our schedule for this week and most of next week, which includes mainly neighborhoods during this pandemic,” says Erica Gilliam, the owner.

“I have been brought to tears a few times by so many who have collaborated, donated, supported, encouraged the numerous individuals and businesses right here in SBC,” she says on Facebook.
