While tooling through Framingham recently. I noticed this colorful flag….
…which alerted me to the presence of Sib’s Lunch.
(I actually didn’t need to be alerted-I’ve eaten here before-but the bright flag would alert even the most distracted passerby)
Sib’s is the Grand daddy (actually Grand mommy) of Metrowest area Hot Dog Trucks. She’s been in the Hot Dog Business for 22 years.
Owner Sylvia Pratt has been serving hot dogs and other comfort foods out of the Sib’s Lunch Hot Dog Truck for 22 years. She’s been at her current location at 165 Fountain Street in Framingham, Massachusetts for 16 of those 22 years. She’s married (sorry fellas) and her husband is retired from the neighboring Ashland Public Schools. He’s the guy who named the Hot dog truck Sylvia has been running all these years; his nickname for his wife is “Sib.”
Sib’s is open from late April/early May until mid November and when Sylvia is done for the season she moves about 110 yards to the Loring Arena in Framingham where she runs the concession stand. Sylvia has served more hot dogs than she can count between the two gigs over the years!
Sib’s menu is loaded with choices, but I always go for the hot dogs at this type of establishment….
I had to hold off on ordering since one of the regulars was chatting up Sylvia……
I got the two dog special to share, but #1 son was with me and he likes his dogs plain (at least he doesn’t put ketchup on a hot dog). PLAIN DOGS DON’T GET PHOTOGRAPHED ON HOT DOG STORIES! (unless they’re ordered by 5 year olds)
I got mine All Around (mustard, relish, and onions).
Then it was time to Chow Down!
Somehow a hot dog from a hot dog truck like Sib’s ALWAYS tastes better than a home-cooked dog! Sib steams both dog and bun and offers the standard condiments: mustard, onions, relish, and ketchup. If you are in Framingham and you don’t want some franchised crud, get yourself down to Sib’s Lunch at 165 Fountain Street in Framingham, Massachusetts. You won’t be sorry.
