Snap, a new mobile food business launched by husband and wife team Zeph and Liz Courtney, is appearing at pop-up events this summer while they work out permit issues with their truck. The team is serving flame-grilled burgers, Chicago-style hot dogs, authentic Belgian-style fries and avocado fries made with quality, locally sourced ingredients.

For the uninitiated, Chicago Dogs feature an all-beef hot dog in a natural casing served on a poppyseed bun topped with yellow mustard, sweet-pickle relish, chopped onions, tomato wedges, a dill pickle spear, sport peppers and dash of celery salt.
Here’s a brief history from DiningChicago.com: “By most accounts, the “banquet on a bun” had its origins in the Great Depression, when greengrocer Jake Drexler decided his 18-year-old son, local sports hero Abe “Fluky” Drexler, needed an occupation. That was in 1929, when jobs were hard to find, so Drexler converted the family’s Maxwell Street vegetable cart into a hot-dog stand, and began offering the “Depression Sandwich,” which sold for a nickel.”
