Only dirty if you read their name with a West Virginia accent, Mastiff Sausage Company's a food truck specializing in craft sausages with the tagline “Manliness Refined” from a couple of Escondido natives who met in the 5th grade when they started talking smack to each other during an ill-mannered game of Capture the Flag.

If you like your sausage like you like your women, refined and um, meaty(?), you'll want this chicken sausage with caramelized 'shrooms, white wine, & Parmesan topped with more creamy mushrooms and shaved Parm.

Wisconsin natives will revel in being one of the nation's leading dairy producers! this Beer Bratwurst w/ Pork, which they top with caramelized onions, crispy bacon, and house whole-grain mustard

Like three-ways? Well, that's kind of weird, but you should wrap your mitts around this porky amalgamation of braised & pulled pork shoulder, herb-stuffed loin, and crispy fried pork belly with an apple & mustard glaze.

And, finally, if your manliness is so refined you know how to use utensils, maybe check out this bowl loaded with their braised house sausage with mirepoix and smoked annatto, chicken, shrimp, and root vegetables, all over brown rice.
