Sometimes, (often times?), you just want to tuck into some real street food. Am I right? No frills, no fine linens. Just that basic need to bite into something juicy, sweet/salty, slathered in buttery goodness and cheesy gooeyness. Whether it's a hot dog, street tacos, chili lime mango on a stick, or this grilled summer corn on the cob, nothing hits like digging into hot fresh food with your bare hands.

Pass a napkin when you get a chance!
