We are Navy Veteran’s that made Jacksonville our home. Kevin started Tasty Dog in 2006 with our 2 daughters helping him and in 2012 I joined them. We now own and operate 5 Mobile Food Carts, have recently opened a restaurant and have a great team of employees that work with us, some have worked with us more than 5 years.
We are known for serving the Freshest Quality Food. We set the standard for serving Fresh Quality Food, being Professional, Outstanding Friendly Customer Service, and our Signature Specialty toppings. We make most of Signature toppings and sauces in house. We also have a vegetarian option for those that are looking for something different.
We have a passion for what we do and enjoy creating different styles of hot dogs. We even put chocolate and marshmallows on a hot dog in the fall. We have fun with what we do. When it is Halloween time, we don’t serve ketchup we serve vampires blood, mustard is vampire venom, relish is zombie brains and coleslaw is mummy wraps. The kids helped come up with these names. Kids are amazing.
We have won Best Food at the Orange Park Fall Festival multiple times over the last 5 years. We were nominated for Bold City Best Truck and selected as one of the Top Three Food Trucks in The Bold City Best 2018 competition for Best Food Truck. We also made the Top 50 Best Mobile Food vendors in Jacksonville in 2018.
We have been known to serve a Hot Dog every 6 seconds at the Donna Deegan run where we gave out 3000 hot dogs and 9 seconds at a Family Company Picnic where we serve 2600 Hot dogs in 4 hours (2 years in row). That was a lot of hot dogs and a lot of fun and we could not do it without the dedication of our Tasty Dog Team members.
We have served food at many different types of events from private catering, Birthday parties, movie nights, school events, pool parties and festivals in access 30,000 people.
We even had a mascot named Tasty that likes to come out and have fun!
We enjoy supporting our community, local groups, non-profit organizations and other local businesses.
Our success comes from cooking and serving QUALITY Tasty food with a Professional Staff and outstanding courteous friendly customer service.
