Seti’s Polish Boys Pulls Up Stakes: No Longer Parked at Dean Supply

For the past decade, Seti Martinez has been parking his food truck in the parking lot of Dean Supply every day of the week. From that boxy white rig he would dispense his delicious Polish Boys, chili dogs and slaw dogs to longtime customers who knew precisely where to find him. If those customers go looking for him there again, they aren’t going to find him.

Seti’s Polish Boys is on the move!

For the first time in more than a decade, Seti’s Polish Boys is setting up shop in a location other than Dean Supply. Martinez says that the move just made sense.

“People had to come a long way to find me there, so I figured, if I’m on the West Side I’m already where a lot of people are,” he says.

These days, Seti and his world famous Polish Boys can be found in front of the Thomas F. McCafferty Health Center, on Lorain Avenue near W. 42nd Street. He’ll be parked there Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. or thereabouts. For the uninitiated, his Polish Boys feature an all-beef sausage topped with slaw, fries and BBQ sauce.

As for the folks at Dean, meaning both the shoppers and the employees, the news was taken with a silver lining, says owner Bruce Desatnik.

"Some people were sad to see him go. Some people were excited about having something new,” he says. “We figure, with all the different food trucks out there we decided we’d change them out every week.”

Look for Seti and his Polish Boys to make an appearance on the Travel Channel’s Bizarre Foods: Delicious Destinations later this summer.
