Location: SW 5th and Harrison
Hours: Daily for lunch
Every pod needs a good hot dog vendor and for A la Carts on SE 50th, just south of Division, We Be Weiners fits that bill.
Ron “Shortz” Cunningham is the man behind the dog at We Be Weiners. A guy’s guy, Ron greets you with a hearty hello and takes your order while engaging in comfortable chit chat, genuinely interested in the customer. Using Hebrew National, considered by many as the gold standard for dogs, Ron puts together a solid frank on a bun. You can always opt for a simple dog, but why be vanilla? Live a little and order one with chili, some chopped onions and grated jack cheese, then top it with yellow mustard, ketchup and relish and you have yourself a meal! I know that sounds like a gut bomb, yet for American hot dogs, you have to amp it up.
We Be Weiners opened this past summer and seems to be doing well in the neighborhood. Most of the carts on the lots stay open into the evening and are open on the weekends. Beyond hot dogs, you can also get sandwiches if that is your bailiwick. Ron will hook you up. Let him know that Food Carts Portland sent ya.
