Let Lunch Come to You!

No time to go out and grab lunch in Abilene? No problem, soon lunch could be coming to you.

The Shortbus Hot Dog stand is calling it "delivery on demand. "

You may have seen the roving vehicle at local events such as the 4th of July fireworks in Tye or at the Big Country Balloon Fest.

Now the couple that started it is making it a full-time business in Abilene beginning March 1.

You can have the bus visit your place of business for a $40 order minimum.

Short-Bus has over 50 toppings for hot dogs, and also serves sandwiches and nachos.

You can reserve the bus by contacting Shortbus Hot Dogs on Facebook.
