Hot Dog of the Week: Hot Doug's

We have all had that interesting hot dog. You know, the one where you were not quite sure what was in it and it didn't taste quite right.

Well at Hot Doug's it may not be the traditional hot dog, but it does taste right.

Hot Doug's-The Sausage Superstore and Encased Meat Emporium will serve you duck sausage, carribean goat sausage and chicken sausage just to name a few.

If you are a eater of what Doug would refer to as 'encased meat' then get off of your all beef hi-stool and try something different.

Not the end-trails that some knock off brands put as filler, but truly delicious ingredients.

While your eating something different, enjoy some of the traditional favorites as well.

Hot Dog of the Week: Tucky's

Question: Would you eat a dog biscuit?

No, not the kind that rover eats but a hot dog deep fried in a biscuit and stuffed with cheddar cheese.

If you would eat this, that Tucky's of Cleveland, OH would be the place for you.

With the slogan of "more than just a hot dog" this is the kind of place that Side Dish Jody would enjoy also as they serve up many non hot dog options.

They also have a hot dog challenge that you can participate in and earn a free t-shirt.

So get to Tucky's in one of there three greater Cleveland area locations

Myrtle Beach, SC

When walking on the beach, what would you take with you to munch on? Well, if you are in Myrtle Beach and this question pops into your head, vie straight for Ocean Front Grill. Snuggle up to the bar top and order the footlong chili dog and take it for a walk down the beach. The chili on top was the perfect amount and combination to quench the appetite. The white onions that are finely sliced, adorn the top and mix greatly with the chili yet are not overpowering to the dog or your breath. The all beef dog snaps when you bite into it and coming off the grill top, it’s a dark color. Whether you decide to dine in or take it with you on the beach, you get a convenient footlong dog tray. BEWARE: When ordering 'everything' on your dog, be prepared to eat this with a bib and a tarp. B+

Atmosphere- As I ordered my footlong, the TV overhead was showing a plethora of snow drowning the Midwest. As I turned my head 180 degrees I saw a picture perfect blue sky, a sandy beach, and people playing football….and that is ten feet out the door. Speaking of doors, the uniqueness of the doors here may never be duplicated. Home garage doors were open for customers to walk in and out as they please. An oceanfront hot dog establishment…WOW! A

Value- Competition drives price down and when your competition is at the other end of the block, prices better be comparable. Comparable is one thing, identical is another. $3.60 for a footlong chili dog is a very good price, especially for an oceanfront dog-establishment. B+

Side Dish Jody says… Jody was an unfortunate victim of the aforementioned Midwest snow storm, but typical bar food was available.

Hot Dog of the Week: Casey's

Orlando, FL

One of our followers was at Disney World in Orlando, FL and saw this hot dog stand.

Apparently Casey's Corner served the traditional baseball food as seen on the board above the cashier's stand.

Each of the wait staff were dressed in vintage look alike baseball apparel with aprons being chest protectors such as umpire would wear.

So here is to Casey's Corner and Disney World for starting Spring Training off right-with a baseball theme!
