    How about this little beauty?! Crikey!



    This was the $1.49 3/4 lb "Mega Dog" at the old Westward Ho casino in Las Vegas. Slots-A-Fun sells a 1/2 lb dog for 99 cents. Maybe ballparks should install a few crap tables and slot machines so we can get some bargain dogs.

        Best kosher dogs with grilled onions at US Cellular Field are the best.

        I had a dog in Kansas City that was beige in color and tasted rotten. Not that all the dogs there are like that, but that has been my worst.

          I've intentionally stayed out of this thread since my last post, and I thought I'd done a pretty good job of skirting the topic. But if you'll let me welcome a new member (skobabe8) by telling a story from the not-so-distant past, we all might just learn a lesson or two.
          During the Asian financial crisis of 1997, I woke up one day to find myself suddenly out of work. The economic crunch had impacted many families, and mine was one of the hardest hit. No longer able to afford electricity or even batteries to power an alarm clock, we were forced to sleep past noon day after day until the very day I was terminated for chronic lateness. Now, if you've ever spent a summer living on instant noodles and the kindness of strangers, you'd know how welcome a kosher dog with onions would be, and how unobtainable, given the lack of kosher products in the Orient. Out of necessity, we took to the streets. Of the dogs we had that summer, I recall a few being beige, but they don't particularly stand out as being rotten. The most rotten were the ones that bit me while I was poking and torturing them to increase their flavor on the grill, which I personally made out of stolen copper wire, and the scars I still carry are a reminder of that hot- ***-hot summer in Asia. I learned the importance of punctuality in the Year of the Dog, and maybe some of you can pass on this story to some strugglin' type a kids 'n all. Tell 'em best git their ***** on over here if they wanna taste a plate, 'cause I gotta barkin' mouth on me sir, and, no ma'am, I cain't stop the appetite.

              The lesson is that when given lemons, one should make lemonade. And that punctuality, along with cleanliness, makes a favorable impression on an employer, godliness withstanding. And that the juiciest dogs are found in Asia.

                The dogs they switched to for a couple of years were by Thorn Apple Valley, and while not completely hideous, they werent as good as the Ball Park's were. I agree that Tiger Stadiums Dogs were second to none (and remember several publications saying such).

                The worst I've ever had was actually a bit off topic, at a hockey game in my adopted new hometown of Columbus, Ohio, where they serve these AWFUL Sugardale brand dogs. They just have the taste of a cheap, disgusting hot dog.

                  Thread resurrection!

                  By far the best hot dog, imo, is a Kahn's dog at Great American. They have a much more "porky" taste than most dogs (if that makes any sense?).

                  The worst dog I've had, unfortunately, is the Sugardale all-beef dogs served at Jacobs (Progressive) Field in Cleveland. I took one bite of my first Sugardale dog last summer and wanted to spit it out immediately!

                  Edit: Ha! I didn't even see the above post lambasting Sugardales when I posted this. Yes, they also serve those pieces of crap at the Columbus Blue Jackets games! However, the dogs served at Cooper Stadium are different (and far superior).

                    I don't remember what kind of hot dog was served at Municipal Stagium, but they were better than the hot dogs at Jacobs Field. The hot dogs were about the only thing that I wish were carried over to Jacobs Field.

                      I'd like to see new Yankee Stadium with a Gray's Papaya stand somewhere... but it probably won't happen.

                        this thread is carries no merit it seems.

                        Every region has a different flavor to their food. Yes, even hotdogs. Your particular flavor honors it more so than another, but someone else will say the opposite.

                        Like for example, New Yorkers will spit on the ground getting that god awful taste of so called pizza, chinese food, bagels, and yes even hotdogs out of their mouths.... if ordered anywhere outside of new york.

                        I didnt care for any of the hotdogs at the ballpark in Phoenix, Baltimore, Chicago (both of them), Arlington, Atlanta, and Philly.

                        Nathans and Sabretts hotdogs are national treasures to me.

The lines are so crazy, by the third inning, they barely put the things on the grill. It's like, open the package, throw it on the grill, one 1000, two 1000, three 1000, here's your dog! Never stopped me from eating them though!
                          We went to Columbus once to see the Clippers and my son had a dog there. He missed the next 2 days of school with some stomach ailment I have to believe was related.

                          Fenway Franks are pretty rancid...eat at the vendor carts outside: sausage Mecca.

                          Likewise I rarely eat the overpriced menu at YS...you can get a pretty good corned beef sandwich across the street.

                          As I posted elsewhere, the best ballpark dog I've ever had is the Slugger Dog at Louisville Slugger Field. Solid beef and all the fixings you add yourself.

                          Having said that, when mood is on me I'll eat about anything in a bun if I'm watching a game at the park. As long as it doen't actually bark or meow at me. (Hence I'll beware of attending a game in Korea).

                            I wasn't going to chime in until I saw this post. I was thinking the exact same thing reading these posts. Just as when asking people what the best stadium is, many will simply name the park of their hometown team, the same applies for the best hot dogs, the best fans, etc. I get a chuckle out of people who say things like, "Without a doubt..." or "Unarguably.....", etc. As if their opinion of what is best is the only one with merit. I wonder how many of those people have been to every stadium and actually tried all the hot dogs....

                              sad to say i am not a fan of the hotdogs at wrigley. wrapped up in foil like that ruins the buns.

                              the dogs at great american were fantastic.

                                The Esskay dogs at Oriole Park were some of the best hot dogs I've had....of course I haven't been to that many major league parks so I can't compare amoungst them all.
