Kebabs, corn dogs, popsicles—something about eating food on a stick delights everyone’s inner child. In celebration of National Something on a Stick Day on March 28th (for real ya’ll)—here are three spots to score fabulous, fork-free eats.
Bob (as in shish ke-), had us at hello. Their candy-colored interior tucked inside the Irwin Street Market, and menu of skewers is a guaranteed crowd pleaser. Try out tounge-and-cheek combos like the Bob Newhart (a heart healthy combo of grilled shrimp, sweet potatoes, and braised onions), or the Bob Markey (Jamaican jerk chicken, pineapples and poblanos). Kebabs not your thing? Order up a house-smoked, nitrate-free hot dog, served (how else?)—on a stick.
Address: 660 Irwin St. NE
Order: The Farmer Bob (Rutabegas, Carrots, Beets, Sweet Potatos, and Butternut Squash)or the Thingamabob (and let them build their own “bob”)

If it’s corndogs you crave, Pallookaville is your place. Touted as “gourmet carnival food,” the mamoth corndogs come in a variety of meats (Italian, Polish or Beef) and batter choices (double batter, cheese, or jalapeño). You can even add a double dip for an extra buck.
Address: 17N Avondale Plz, Avondale Estates or mobile corndog wagon (check their Facebook page for locations)
Order: The Corndogski (polish sausage wrapped with their signature cornbread)
