A new food truck named The Rusty Dog debuted about a month ago in the Kmart parking lot at 10477 W. Fairview Ave. near the corner of Five Mile Road.

As the name suggests, the food truck, owned by Robb and Kim Greiner, puts out an array of hand-dipped corn dogs. Expect to find The Rusty Dog (foot-long beef corn dog brushed with honey butter), The Hot Rusty (jalapeno-spiked Polish dog with spicy honey) and other battered and fried sausage treats.

Take care of that sweet tooth with a trio of freshly fried Puppy Nutz donuts.

The Rusty Dog usually sets up from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays-Saturdays — unless it’s away doing special events.

Right next to The Rusty Dog, waffle lovers can take care of their cravings at Waffle Addiction, a mobile food shack that opened a few months ago.

Owners James and Mary Casiano dish up an array of tasty sweet and savory waffles. The menu includes maple-bacon waffles, cinnamon bun waffles and Belgian waffles with a cheesecake filling and blueberry sauce. Savory items include fried chicken and waffles and stuffed pizza waffles.

Stop by for a smothered waffle and drop off a new holiday toy for a child in need at the Toys for Tots box and receive 25 percent off until Nov. 21.

Waffle Addiction is open 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Wednesdays-Fridays, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sundays.
