The Katz n Dogz Truck we reviewed last year is in some serious hot water. And I’m not referring to dirty dog water. According to an article in the NY Post, the legendary Katz’s Delicatessen has brought a lawsuit against the owners of the food truck (who also run a pastrami cart). The trademark-infringement suit seeks over $1 million in damages for the use of Katz’s name and brand. As many of our commenters had pointed out in the past, it was only a matter of time before this would occur. If this truck returns to the streets, let’s hope they don’t rename themselves “The Carnegie Truck”.

Thanks to a handful of our readers who have been discussing the latest offerings from the newer more expensive food trucks on a previous post, I discovered a brand new truck that debuted a few weeks ago under the radar. Despite the silly name, the Katz n Dogz truck has been hanging in Midtown serving pastrami and corned beef sandwiches, Hebrew National franks, salami, knishes, burgers (including one topped with pastrami), cole slaw, etc. Basically a lite version of what you’d expect to find at a classic Jewish deli.
