The media was all over this event, treating street food vendors like rock stars.

Lines full of happy, hungry people streamed across the parking lot hoping they would reach the truck before supplies ran out at crowd favorites like M & M BBQ Ribs.

All day long, this is what the line looked like from inside Boston Speeds Hot Dog Wagon. Many fans waited more than an hour for a Speed Dog.

Today, Boston's Chowhounds are busy talking about the day. More coverage and photos are on BostonZest. Anyone else go?
