The Wheels Keep Turning for Food Truck Owner Chris Hodgson

The Shaker Heights native who's taken the concept of "meals on wheels" to a new level has made the news again. This time Chris Hodgson, owner of the popular Cleveland food truck Dim and Den Sum, has been featured on Good Morning America. In April, the 25-year-old launched his second food truck, Hodge Podge, as a part of the Food Network's Great Food Truck Race and has since ended up with other competitors and their trucks on the morning news broadcast alongside anchor Robin Roberts. Among his many popular menu items are the PBLT (pulled pork, bacon, lettuce and tomato) and his foie gras Tater Tots. However, Hodgson has more on his plate for the near future: While he's not helping other chefs begin their own food trucks, Hodgson is planning to open a restaurant, possibly in Lakewood, so his food truck fans always know where to find their favorite menu items. He told us about the restaurant, his most popular dishes and more when we talked to him for our May issue ("On a Roll").

Dim and Den Sum's food is average compared to Cleveland's other food trucks and they consistently let down customers by promising to be at events then not showing up. Try Jibarro, Umami Moto, or StrEat instead. The food is much better.
