Food City

The Best Darn Food City Uou Can Get

Let Me Be Frank opening in Sioux Falls with lunch, late-night food

Let Me Be Frank, hot dog cart is opening in Sioux Falls April 1, 2022.

It’s a business concept that’s been missing from the Sioux Falls scene for a while, but starting Friday the city will have a hot-dog cart vendor on the streets.

Comet Kamalo Buum, 35, is the owner of the Let Me Be Frank hot-dog stand opening Friday in Sioux Falls.

The 35-year-old is coming off a 16-year career in the optical industry.

“This little hotdog cart has been a pipe dream of mine for a long time,” Buum said, “And I thought I would get laughed and it’s been absolutely the opposite of that. Everybody’s been insanely supportive.”

Let Me Be Frank will be a traveling cart. Friday’s opening will be at lunchtime on 41st Street and Western Avenue, according to Buum. He’ll be downtown at times, too. Saturday will be his first night late-night service outside Wileys.

“For those weekend nights when you’re having a great time, and you need a late night meal, I’ll be there,” Buum said.

He said he’s an avid cooking fan, but when it came down to deciding what to sell the answer was simple.

“I love the simplicity of the business concept. And it’s delicious,” Buum said. “Yes, they’re just hot dogs, but honestly, a really well made hot dog.”

The hot dog menu will include all-beef hot dogs in a steamed bun. American dogs, chili-cheese and Chicago-dogs are also on the menu. A kid’s menu will also be available serving smaller portions of food.
