Woof Woof! America's Best Hot Dogs
Yahoo ^ | Jun 11, 2014 | Pervaiz Shallwani

Posted on 06/15/2014 4:35:31 PM PDT by kingattax

From classic franks to artisan wieners with toppings like kimchi, here are the nation’s best hot dogs.

Senate Restaurant; Cincinnati

Chef Daniel Wright has received national accolades for his playful takes on pub food, including a regularly changing menu of hot dogs like the Croque Madame (Black Forest ham, poached egg, béchamel) and the Lindsey Lohan (goat cheese, caramelized onions, bacon, arugula and balsamic vinegar). senatepub.com

Thanks. I just bought some hot dogs for dinner tonight. Guess I’ll open a can of chilli beans.

Found this cheffy trick to serve juicy BBQ’ed franks.

TRICK: First boil them in hot water on stovetop.

Then simply grill-mark on outdoor grill——they’ll be nice and juicy nestled in those fresh buns.

I have no idea if they are still in business but I used to love the Coney Island in Downtown, Tulsa. That was back in the 70s.

Pinks? Pinks is a pure waste of time. Overpriced, sloppy, tasteless and always a long line. The red cabbage side has a spice in it that makes it almost inedible. Lastly, the counter people have such a strong accent you cannot understand them. Been there once, will never go back. Most of the people I talked to during my visit were visiting from out of town, just there for the tourist trap, then very disappointed with what they got. How these guys have stayed in business all these years is incredible.

Used to be a place called the Weiner Factory in the Valley on Ventura blvd. Best place in town bar none and a hundred fold better than pinks. Closed down as the property was sold. Their prices were reasonable and their Polish dogs were wonderful. Pinks? You have to be kidding. I think we have been here before on a much better thread.

GOOD sauerkraut (the all-day kind with celery seed, boiled with pork, perhaps a bit of apple) and French’s yellow mustard. MMMMmmmmmm.

There’s a little place that just opened in our town that “specializes” in hot dogs. I couldn’t wait to try their Sour Dog. How disappointing it was to find that they just opened a plain old can of the stuff and plopped it on. Even the pretzel roll didn’t help.

In Columbia SC which is home, there is a start up called Wurst Wagon. A husband and wife outfit that I found by chance at some running event my wife went to.

I usually don’t care for sausage that much but I love theirs. The schnitzel is really good and the potato salad is some of the best.

They do a good business and stay mobile. They bought a van to outfit recently.

Guess Costco’s $1.50 dog was not worth a mention. Costco is an American success story. Yahoo can't be hailing that—even though Yahoo is in the same group.

Costco was pure genius to have their long POLISH sausage hot dog and a drink for $1.50....even more genius for not putting the price any higehr all these years....

back to hot dogs...Oscar Meyer had a hot dog called "New York Deli Style" last year which was heavenly but not sure they make them anymore...

Top two imho:
The Chicago dog using Vienna Beef frank and a Coney Island from either the Lafayette or American in Detroit (do either still exist?).

Yeah, Chicago is dogtown handsdown. My fav is Johnnie’s in Elmwood Park out west on North Avenue. And the gold medallions and hairy chests and Italian ice on a hot summer night add to the ambience.

Nathan’s or Hebrew Nationals. On a grill. Bun. Mustard. Relish. Done.

My dad was from Chicago and I learned at an early age that a hot dog is allowed to have mustard - Plochman’s for a preference - and onion and relish and a pickle spear. Sliced tomato as an option. Celery salt as an option. Nothing else. According to family legend he threw out one of my sister’s boyfriends for asking for ketchup.

Vienna Beef rules. I cant find many places in Atlanta that serves them but if I do they charge a hell of a lot for them.

When I was a kid in Panama City, FL the lunch room served hot dogs maybe once a month. I was in the first grade and they had a sauce you could put on your hot dog.

It was the only thing they had to add and it was pretty good. I actually thought it was a special sauce they made until one of the other kids told me they just mixed the mayonnaise, mustard and Ketchup together to make the line move faster.

America's Best Hot Dogs

America's best hot dogs are the ones served with a baseball game being played a short distance in front of them. Doesn't have to be MLB, either. Sounds corny and cliched, and I don't know why it's so, but it is. Maybe something about sunlight and open air enhances the flavor - I've noticed that picnics also bring out the flavor.

Goat cheese and other fancy accompaniments might work, but are not necessary.

Best home-made chili dogs on earth:
Use Hormel's canned chili without beans and bbq the dogs and add grated cheese or"
put a slice or two of great bacon on the dog sandwich and a very healthy batch of Cheese Whiz...and maybe s splash of Dijon mustard to kick it up a notch.

Best I’ve ever had was in Denmark. Skinny foot long dog seasoned with some sort of horseradish and topped with sauted onions. The bun was a little bitty nasty cheapo thing though but the dog made up for it.

Next best is a good old chili dog.

My solution to the low calorie hot dog issue is to BBQ the wieners as much as possible w/o destroying the wiener and then dunking them in Ketchup a bite at a time....yummy.....

Mama Vickie’s Coney Island hot dogs in Port Huron Michigan are the best on the planet. Some say true coney island hot dogs originated there. Their coney sauce is superb.

Marinate them in beer, onion powder and garlic overnight then grill them brown and a little crispy on the outside. I use kosher because I don’t really care to ingest what is in some of the cheaper ones. Hebrew National or Nathan’s. They are salty, salt is used as a preservative, so be aware of that when seasoning them. Use whatever floats your boat for toppings, I like a buttered, grilled bun, sharp cheddar, bacon, onion, relish and brown mustard.

Skin-on Sabretts with Italian onions or kraut and mustard or a chili dog from Tommy’s in Carteret. Exit 12 NJTP. Also good is a Chicago dog in Chicago. Try mixing ketchup and curry powder and pouring on a sliced up frank. They used to call it a currywurst in Germany.
