Hot Dog on a Stick thinking outside the mall, opening drive-thru

The colorful and ubiquitous mall and county fair food vendor known as Hot Dog on a Stick is escaping the food court.

Last summer, the chain opened its a small drive-thru in West Jordan, Utah, its first.

This summer, it’s opening its first California drive-thru…right here in the Inland Empire!

The chain is taking over a former Popeye’s at 14777 Bear Valley Road in Hesperia.

In addition to the typical hot dogs and cheese on a stick, funnel cake sticks and fresh-squeezed lemonade, the location is likely to offer breakfast items, such as french toast sticks, batter-fried sausage on a stick and hash browns.

The location is set to open around June 15.

Update: The location opened June 14, and the restaurant will be holding its grand opening on Saturday, July 24, which happens to be National Drive-Thru Day.
