Swizzler's journey began in 2014, when college friends followed a dream to launch a food truck serving spiral-cut, grass-fed beef hotdogs and hand-cut fries in Washington, D.C.
Our mission was to teach an old dog new tricks, changing the perception of the 'mystery meat' hot dog. We sourced 100% grass-fed beef hot dogs, spiral-cut each one for optimal grilling, and served them on locally-baked buns with our house-made toppings.
The original Swizzler Food Truck exclusively served our spiral-cut hotdogs (we call them ‘swizzlers’). While hotdogs will always be a part of what we do, we've realized that what we've really tapped into is something much bigger: providing the all-American eats we grew up on, without the grease or guilt of today's fast food options. That's why we've expanded our menus to truly provide 'Real American Eats.'
We can all remember the joys of our favorite childhood foods: hot dogs at the ballpark, burgers fresh off the grill at a backyard bbq, and fishing crispy french fries out of the bag from your favorite fast food joint.
But as we got older, these happy memories were replaced by fast food hangovers and nightmares inspired by Netflix documentaries about where our food comes from. Until now.
We believe that fast food can be a force for good. Our purpose is to share the joys of fast food, while leaving people and the planet for the better. We aim to raise the bar for fast food: we call it Real American Eats.
