MN Food Truck Among 21 Best In The Nation

A Minnesota food truck’s cuisine is among the best in the United States, according to
Thrillist—which reviews restaurants, bars, and entertainment by city—said it identified food trucks that offer “the best bites” and have chefs who turn “street food into an art form” for its list.
Minneapolis’ Natedogs food truck appears on the “21 Best Food Trucks in America” list, which includes everything from a burger, brisket, and short rib truck in Miami to a Venezuelan-inspired arepa truck in Denver.
Founded by Nathan Beck in 2011, Natedogs features a menu of hot dogs and bratwursts (sourced from Pastures A Plenty in Kerkhoven) with homemade condiments, including a beer mustard made with local beers. Beck’s truck travels between Minneapolis and St. Paul.
“This simple, bright-orange cart packs some serious punch with skin-on wieners and brats topped with a choice of scratch-made beer mustards, relishes, and caramelized onions,” Thrillist author Rachel Freeman wrote. “If you're trying to regulate your cholesterol, you might want to order just one . . . then chill ‘til the next episode to try more.”
