Snap Food Truck: Bringing a Little Chicago to NYC

Hot dogs are one of my favorite foods.  Being a bit of a hot dog purist, I like them simple with a little ketchup and mustard. That was until Snap Truck converted me to the Chicago style hot dog. Run by good PA friends, Liz and Zeph Courtney, Snap debuted their flame grilled fare earlier(…)
