Brisk Business in Patzcuaro

On 1 November 2009, Noche de Muertos, this food cart was set up on its usual corner of the Plaza Vasco de Quiroga, Patzcuaro, Mexico. Hungry customers thronged around it three and four deep, eager for their turn. Trying to serve all, the chef-owner of mobile Hamburguesas y Hotdogs Mayo really moves--and does it with a smile. Great personality! He deserves the business.

A burger with everything = meat, butter, ham, cheese, hot chile salsa, mustard, catsup, mayo, lettuce and bun.

A place for you.

I love this guy. I first ate there on a dark night back in 2001. He´s always entertaining and the burgers and hot dogs are good too. Only problem is that he does so well that it can take quite a while to get served. The line can be very long.

I usually think of this guy when people say it´s almost impossible to make a living in Mexico. He supports his family doing this, and he has a nice minivan that he tools around in. And he sends his kids to private schools.

All from burgers and hot dogs. And hard work, of course, and, in his case, with a smile.

It is amazing how he keeps all the orders for various combinations straight.
