I can remember having my first ZombieDogz in 2014 in the Lowe’s Parking lot on Wilmington Pike. It was the CALLING IN DEAD: An all beef hot dog topped with a creamy homemade white truffle mac & cheese and finished off with crumbled crackers. It was my first of many experiences at this truck, which quickly established a cult following at food truck rallies, often with waits of up to an hour for one of their gourmet dogs.
In fall of 2016 they opened up a shop near UD on Brown Street. But sadly, today on Facebook they’ve announced the store will close:
“Good morning everybody. First and foremost we hope that everyone is staying healthy and handling life the best they can right now.
The past year or so have been trying for us as a restaurant. Sales have been down and we’ve been barely getting by every month. Unfortunately having to shut down for 2 months only made matters worse. So with a very heavy heart we will be shutting the restaurant down permanently.
We will start back with the food truck when we can do so safely. Most of the festivals have already been cancelled for the year. So we will be doing what we can this summer and fall to get out there as much as possible. We will be keeping everyone updated when we know exactly when the truck will start back up again.
We want to thank everyone of you for years of constant support and love. Thank you for everything you have always done for us. We love you all and we can’t wait to get out there and see you at the food truck.”
So now we’ll be on the lookout for their Food Truck out and about.
