In search of the perfect Hotdog

142 posts in this topic

There are numerous post about hotdogs , but there is no central place for the information.

Mike and I have been posting list and pictures in other threads , but im getting old and cant remember where all of them are.

I got the idea to do this after Mike posted pictures on his last trip.

I was thinking we could post a picture of the place, there website if available and any other info you think is needed .

 

I will start off with these pictures

 

This is The Doghouse in New Castle Delaware

Where the wife and I had dinner last night

I had a Jumbo Footlong with everything (Chilli, sourcraut, peppers, onions , relish, old bay)

It was goooooood ;):):P

I'm a big fan of coleslaw on my hotdogs for the last 50 years.

Ronald, excellent idea. But we should put it in Barbecue Restaurants? Perhaps better suited and more exposure?

 

 

 

Guess this one deserves a repeat performance. Flo's, up in Maine. Yep - they have'm all the way up there too!

Here is their link: http://www.floshotdogs.com/

 

And some good reviews:

And of course, as in the "Shelly's Kitchen", we now present a doggy presentation (please keep down the barking applause) Mike'ys Dog Shack:

Perhaps some dog trivia is in order.

Ronald, you started something addictive here! Now I'm looking forward to hot dogs for lunch (oops - lunchtime is almost over)!

 

Looking up roasted garlic barbecue for another member just found this article which I thought appropriate for your new thread! Sorry to dominate it so much....

You are doing exactly what I wanted.

Remember this all started when we started talking about hotdogs in Jersey a month or so ago.

 

I just thought it would be kool if we could come up with a list of places that we have actually been to that everyone can use.

I dont no how to move the thread so we will most likely need Bluesins help with this

Ronald,

 

I just moved it to here. And being as I love hot dogs - this may well be one of my favorite places to seek first each day! :)

 

Thanks for the jump start!

Ronald,

 

I might very well have stopped there back in the 70's and early 80's. I used to race motorcycles (motocross) and we had a track down that way (maybe Seaford, or something like that) which ran a six race series each year (I still have Jackets from there - I won four series in two classes). All I remember is driving South on Rt 13 "forever" across flat lands. But we always stopped for lunch around New Castle and I believe this could have been one of our stops. I'll have to check my 35mm slides (back then all I took with a camera was slides - I have literally thousands of them) and see if the Doghouse is in them.

 

Footlongs are always great - especially for a hearty eater like myself! ;)

In the Jersey Shore Area, this is one of the most famous stops for a quick lunch and beverage. Stewarts Root Beer is probably known nationally, but right here in Jersey they are big. Though they sell much more than just hot dogs, all the rest pale in comparison to their dogs. I know - since childhood I've been having Stewarts hot dogs and root beer! My favorite was a small stand just off one of our water tributaries running inland from the Barnegat Bay. We would be out for the day on my boat, and if in the area, we'd tie up the boat at a dock, and walk the 1/8 mile to the Stewarts Stand. Then take back our dogs and root beer to dine on my boat - we felt like kings partaking of their tasty food in this manner! Ooohh - those were the days! The boat is no longer in the water, but I still stop at our local Stewarts several times a year. Next trip I'll snap a photo of the place.

During the week, I go out for lunch. I usually go to "mikey's dog shack". ;)

 

 

Getting ready for work lunches at the shack:

A short ride today yielded a few good hot dog sources. I mentioned Stewarts earlier, here is our local restaurant:

 

 

 

And of course - anyone in the tri-state area must have heard of the Windmill - their dogs are humongous and awesome!

Another stop for most travelers and truckers, these guys have non-stop lines from 10am until 3pm, a great foot long dog!

 

 

 

Finally, this next "corner store" can be found in just about every city in the world. We have our fair share around. Always a delight for a quick grab without wait, cheap and everywhere! You should recognize this picture - you probably wouldn't have to travel more than a mile or two anywhere to find one!

 

 

 

That explains an hour or so of my afternoon! And dinner tonight will be at Mikey's Dog Shack - the chef being Patty! ;)
