Last time I was in New Orleans I didn't get one but friends were raving about how good they were. I ended up trying a creole sausage with everything and let me tell you it was great. It was so good I went online at home to see if they could ship them to me here in Mass but they don't sell the dogs online.

Honestly it's not fair for me to review this as I did not actually eat the hot dogs. The workers appear dirty, the cart was filthy and although it might be the only option in the middle of the night...I would rather starve.

Ever since I read (and re-read) Confederacy of Dunces, I always said that when I was in New Orleans I would eat at a Lucky Dog. In the novel, they're called Paradise Hot Dogs but you can tell that he's talking about Lucky Dogs. I finally got around to it a couple of weeks ago on a business trip. Very good hot dog. Not the best I've ever had (I live in Illinois so I'm partial to Portillo's) but for the charm and nostalgia, it was great.

It's a freaking hotdog, nothing special about them at all. They taste fine but not any different than a typical roller dog you can get in 5, 000 gas stations for a lot less money.
