Doug and Patty’s Hot Dog Truck in Blauvelt

Doug and Patty’s is not your ordinary food truck.
You can’t miss this white-and-hot-pink truck when you are driving down Route 303 in Blauvelt — but it’s the food inside that really stands out. Owner Tristan Abustan wanted to “add his own flair” to the food truck. This hidden treasure makes the 303 Hot Dog, which is jammed packed with flavor.
Made with a fresh hot dog (never frozen), barbecue sauce, slaw, crisp shallots, and a homemade mayo — and paired with garlic fries on the side —and it is absolutely delicious. Wash it down with Abustan’s version of a virgin mojito, is made with ice, honey, and lime, and your meal will be perfect. Not a fan of hot dogs? Don’t worry, Doug and Patty’s offers a variety of burgers that are made fresh, including the Blauvelt Burger, with bacon and an onion ring:
By the way: the name? Doug and Patty? Think about it, and just remove that U. You’ll get it.

  1. Tristan, Just seeing the photo of the “303” had my mouth watering all over again! The best tasting hot dog I have ever had hands down. And the virgin mojito! Fantastic compliment. I am very glad that I took Sophies advice. I hope you enjoyed the rice balls as well. I look forward to my next food demo. Thank you so very much. Josephine

  2. I went to Doug and Patties a few days ago. We really enjoyed our dogs. The staff were great too. I had the 303 with their special hot sauce and I think it was a wasabi mustard. Looking forward to my next visit.
