Moab Street Dogs offers a total of 18 different unique hot dog recipes – from the traditional chili cheese, to the Mac and Jack Russell – a beef frank covered with macaroni and cheese, chili sauce and bacon bits served on a poppy seed bun.
“It’s good, and it’s huge,” said Moab Street Dogs owner Mustafa Uyan.
His own personal favorite is the Cuban Dog, a beef frank cut in the middle, placed on a toasted bun, and topped with mustard, arugula, two slices of swiss cheese, and two slices of ham.
“It’s huge, and amazing,” he said.
Patrons can choose between a beef, pork sausage or vegie dog. Side dishes include coleslaw, macaroni and cheese, or chips.
Moab Street Dogs’ menu also includes either sweet or savory Belgian waffles, house made crepes and French toast.
There are five different types of sweet crepes, including one with Nutella and banana. Savory versions include the basil, tomato and cream cheese; or the ham, bacon, and egg topped with balsamic vinegar crepe. Additionally, Uyan makes two special crepe varieties each day, for a total of nine different options.
Moab Street Dogs offers three different types of French toast, and eight various signature waffle combinations – such as the waffle and hot dog – a beef frank wrapped up in a waffle and topped with cream cheese, butter and bacon.
“It’s a really good one,” Uyan said.
Uyan used to own a coffeeshop in Turkey, where he was born. He additionally owned both a restaurant and coffeeshop in Cambodia – where he continues to have a restaurant. He hadn’t planned on opening an eatery in Moab, too.
He was visiting Moab a month before the pandemic hit and became stranded after all international flights were canceled
“Everything shut down,” he said. “I couldn’t move. It was crazy.”
So, he extended his VISA, and decided to open Moab Street Dogs in December 2021. His food truck has since attracted a loyal following. He said he hopes to make the business a franchise.
It’s important to him that his customers “feel happy after eating my food,” he said.
Moab Street Dogs serves hot drip coffee – a blend Uyan mixes himself. There’s also nine different sodas, plus iced tea and Arnold Palmer drinks.
Moab Street Dogs is located in the Moab Food Truck Park, 39 W. 100 North, and open seven days a week, from 8:30 a.m. to 7:30 or 8 p.m.
