Rookie Food Cart of the Year | Restaurant Guide | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Rookie Food Cart of the Year

Hogan's Hoagie Stop

Stellar sandwiches that our team craves over and over prompt a new category in our Restaurant Guide awards

There are a lot of great food carts in Bend, making a lot of great food. But in the case of Hogan's Hoagie Stop, we felt their sandwiches warranted creating an entire new category: Rookie Food Cart of the Year. Plus, Central Oregon has so many food carts these days, that recognizing a new, successful player just seemed like the right move.

Hogan's has been a frequent stop for the Source staff this year—which includes a variety of different eaters, including vegetarians and omnivores.

The sandwiches at Hogan's Hoagie Stop are next level. The bread, meat—or veggies—and the special, homemade sauces make these delightful meals into something you'll dream about.

Jason Hogan and his wife Hillary opened the food cart at River's Place on Purcell Boulevard on Oct. 28, 2018. The cart serves seven regular sandwiches, from the Murray—grilled turkey, salami and roast beef surrounded by provolone and gouda cheese, shredded lettuce and banana peppers tossed in Italian vinaigrette—to the O.G. Combo, which has melted American cheese on Big Ed's sourdough. Plus, there's usually a special on offer.

"There are a ton of awesome people doing awesome stuff in this town and I'm honored to win this award," Jason Hogan said. "We're getting a big following of regulars who really appreciate what we're doing."

Hogan said the cart is getting a lot of weekend business now that winter's finally moved on, and he's ready to rock n' roll this summer.

"There's enough people in this town to support good people and good products," Hogan said.
