I was really excited when I first got the flyer from this place when they opened. I had seen Hot Dog Paradise and all of those shows on Food and Travel Channel. I really wanted to try a Chicago style dog and a "ripper". This place had all of those on the menu. We traveled all the way to the weird industrial location that was listed on the menu received in the mail only to be very disappointed that it was no longer there. No worries though as it turns out they just moved a few miles away to a proper shopping center.
Inside the shop is very small, only a few tables seated very close together. It looks as though they haven't quite settled in yet after being open at the new location for two months. It's too quiet and a little too cramped to comfortably have any kind of conversation so my friend and I took our hot dogs to go. I got the Chicago and she got the Atlanta. I guess they deep-fry all the dogs because they looked like one of those rippers I saw on tv.
The chili on the Atlanta dog was good enough for my very picky friend and I enjoyed mine just fine. I just felt like it wasn't unlike something I could do at home with a great Nathan's hot dog. This concept probably works best in a business location or as a food truck where you're stuck at work and only have a few options. I can't really see myself opting to go there for dinner. Still, good to try if you want to experience a few different types of hot dogs.
