SHOUT OUT: Decades ago, a young worker at the original Callahan’s in Fort Lee called orders to go “on wheels” — something that literally comes true next month, when the legendary hot dog stand makes a comeback as a food truck at Port Imperial Boulevard on the Hudson River in West New York.

“They say April showers bring May flowers, but has it ever brought back hot dogs?” said Daniel DeMiglio, the grandson of founder Leonard “Artie” Castranni.

DeMiglio is bringing the truck to the Riverwalk Outdoor Market from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on April 12 and 19.

He is also offering a special edition t-shirt as part of a special raffle.

Only 56 will be printed, commemorating 56 years at Callahan’s original Palisade Avenue location (SEE:

DeMiglio plans to hit farmer’s markets and weekend festivals and also cater events.

He told that he’ll be tapping the original vendors for the snappy-crisp hot dogs, fries and other offerings.

And if you listen closely, you’ll hear the shout: “Single!”
