Hot Dog of the Week: Coney Island Lunch

The Midwest has notoriously bastardized the term 'coney'.

Coney, in the Great Lakes region, tells more about the kind of restaurant instead of a term for our beloved hot dog.

Hot Dog of the Week: City Hot Dogs

In the movie Forrest Gump, Bubba tells Forrest how many ways his family makes shrimp.

Well at City Hot Dogs in Charlotte, NC you can choose the way you want your dogs prepared. You can get them chargrilled, deep fried, skinless, incinerated or kosher. Choose your buns steamed or toasted as well to wrap around your hot dog.

An all beef hot dog not quite hitting your taste pallet? Try a sausage dog or a rueben dog made just the way the sandwich bearing the same name is made.

One of the ways that the Carolina's serve hot dogs are by adding cole slaw atop a dog. One option you will not see served on a dog is ketchup. If you want ketchup on your dog, you must go to the condiment bar and put it on yourself.

So when in the queen city, simply look for the simplistic name. You know, the place in the city that serves hot dogs.
