Tail O The Pup a Los Angeles Institution returned to its new home today

Tail O The Pup a iconic Los Angeles institution has returned after a 11 year disappearance. Tail O The Pup first opened in 1946 on the corner of Beverly and La Cieniga. Shaped like a hot dog as was the mimic style architecture that was widely popular in Los Angeles during the 1940’s as the car culture was growing as a way to draw customers in. The stand a mustard dripping wiener in a stucco bun was designed by architect Milton Black. In the 1970’s the stand changed hands from its owners the dance team Veloz and Yolanda to Eddie Blake. during the 1980’s Tail O The Pup faced demolition, but outcry because of the stands appearances in countless TV shows and movies it was relocated a few yards away from its location at 311 La Cieniga, to 325 San Vicente Boulevard. The new Tail O The Pup is a food truck that is located just a stones throw from the original stands location at 451 La Cieniga Blvd, across the street form another iconic Los Angeles institution Norms. At today’s opening I tried what was listed on the menu as a new classic dog, The South Of The Border. The South Of The Border Dog had Pico de Gallo, crumbled bacon, and Cojito cheese. the hot dog was very good and had a nice crisp snap to it just like I remembered from the old stand located on San Vicente Blvd. The new menu contains classic dogs that were available at the old stand like The Baseball Special, a dog with mustard relish and diced onions. The Manhattan, with sauerkraut, mustard and diced onions. Another dog on the old classics menu is The Extreme, loaded with american cheese, mustard, relish, diced onions, chili and tomatoes. On the New Classics Dogs menus are things like The Pastrami Dog with pastrami, sauerkraut, Swiss cheese and mustard. The Italian with grilled red peppers, pepperchini, caramelized onions, tomato, shredded lettuce, and Italian dressing. The Blue dog has blue cheese, crumbled bacon and caramelized onions. the menu also includes specialty items like burgers, pastrami sandwiches, a tuna sandwich and a grilled cheese sandwich. hand cut french fries, tater tots and onion rings as sides can also be ordered and extras added to them. The truck will be open at its new location every day from 11 am to 11 pm. catering is also available. for more information please call (310) 579-1213
