Rumor has it that they deep fry the dogs before grilling. Whatever it is, they are super juicy and delicious! Can't go wrong with the toppers, especially grilled onions ;) The chili dog is good but wish was hotter, very mild. About $3-5 per gourmet topped dog. Less for less. Long lines that go fast and worth the wait. Buy more than one or regret. Best hot dogs you'll ever eat. No joke.
