If you haven’t heard, A Little Taste of Chicago food truck will be closing Friday. They’ll be spending the rest of the week in Fairpark in downtown Tupelo if you want to drop by; say hello; buy a Chicago dog , Italian beef, etc..
Here’s what they said on their Facebook page:
All good things must come to an end!
After 14 months of serving the Tupelo and surrounding areas it is with great sadness that A Little Taste of Chicago announces that we will be calling it quits on Friday, March 9th.
We have had an amazing ride and it was an honor to serve so many loyal customers.
Unfortunately, timing is everything and our family dynamics have changed during the last several months, causing us to make this hard decision.
We THANK YOU for all the support and hope to see you on our Farewell Friday(03.09.2018)!
We will be working Wednesday- Friday at Fair Park 11-2pm where it all Started!!
PS – A Little Taste of Chicago is for sale. Please help us spread the word in our community so hopefully the business remains in our area. Please call Dustin at 662.668.1853. Serious inquiries only please.
Here’s what we wrote about them last January:
Italian beef from A Little Taste of Chicago
The newest addition to the food truck scene in Tupelo has been up and running for about a month.
It’s called A Little Taste of Chicago, and it offers exactly what it says – a variety of hot dogs, plus Italian beef, Italian sausage and beef, cheese fries and chili cheese fries are on the menu.
The food truck is run by Heather Brozenec and Yvonne Brozenec, Illinois natives who have been living in Northeast Mississippi for about nine years ago.
Heather’s brother, Dustin Millen, returned from overseas, and when the family got back together, they wanted a way to share their love for the Windy City.
After buying a truck and fixing it up over a few months, they opened it in January.
“We know a lot of people from Chicago and Illinois down here, and we just thought the cuisine would appeal to a lot of people,” Heather said. “Everything’s going well – every week we get more and more people.”
Among the favorite menu items are the Italian sausage and beef combo, Yvonne said.
“And of course the hot dogs, which are all Vienna hot dogs,” she added.
(BTW, Vienna Beef hot dogs should NOT be confused with vienna sausages)
Then of course is the famous Chicago Dog: it’s on a sesame seed bun, and comes with mustard – NO ketchup – onions, pickle relish, a dill pickle spear, tomato slices or wedges, pickled sport peppers and a dash of celery salt.
But if you have to have ketchup, they’ll accommodate you.
Farewell, A Little Taste of Chicago!
