Welcome to the Hustle

Los Angeles & Asian-inspired street dogs

Our beginning

In 2017, we had the idea of filling a void in Melbourne’s inner West. That was when Hot Dog Hustle was born.

With wooden barrels and milk crates that were repurposed as tables and chairs, we initially started hustling from a food truck, situated within the parking lot of a drive-thru coffee place in Braybrook.

How it’s going

The Hustle continues to flourish, establishing our brick-and-mortar store that operates in the heart of Footscray, conveniently across from the station.

We continue to serve a not-so-basic fusion of Los Angeles and Asian-inspired street dogs with a side of unpredictable specials.

Our purpose

We aim to revitalise Melbourne's West by bringing together people, communities and a thriving culture.

If you know about us, you know about us. If you don’t, what are you waiting for?

It’s time to join the hustle!
