It looks like Windy City Red Hots is out at their longtime location at the Blue Mount Nursery on Lexington Dr., just off Route 7. In its place, the Ashburn-based Mamma Rocks Artisan Sandwiches food truck has taken over the daily lunch business.
You’ll recall that after years of serving lunches from a spot in the nursery’s parking lot, this spring, Windy City Red Hots announced they would be taking a temporarily time out while they made much-needed repairs to their food truck.
Well, weeks stretched into months, and this week, Mamma Rocks Artisan Sandwiches announced that they will begin Monday through Friday lunch service at the nursery next week. They will be there on weekends too, except when they have special events.
A Windy City employee said they still hope to have their mobile unit up and running before long, but whether it would return to Blue Mount or another location is unclear. In the meanwhile, the tiny Leesburg-based hot dog chain has two brick-and-mortar locations — one in downtown Leesburg and one in Frederick, Maryland.
