Maggie’s Lunch Truck, aka the Red Truck Food Truck, has been serving up hot dogs with chili since 1973.

The problem with places that have been establishments for nearly 50 years is that they rarely change.

That can be a good thing, but sometimes when the rest of the world catches up, one can get left behind.

Here the dog is pretty good.

It’s a little mushy, but not bad.

The chili is sweeter than you would expect, but also fine.

The bun as well, fine.

In short, as you’d guess, everything is find, good even.

It’s an establishment for a reason.
