It certainly looks similar to the wurst vendors I patronized in Germany 
(modernize the dress and turn the table into a cart with a built in grill). 
They would serve long, skinny bratwurst or knackwurst that stuck out about 
six inches on either side of a brotchen.  Only thing missing here is the 
mustard and the paper plates.
