Mutts Amazing Hot Dogs/The Hot Dog Thread

I like hot dogs quite a bit but no places that have specialized in hot dogs have ever really made it in Oklahoma. I'm a big fan of specialty dogs and the only two places I've found here that have hot dogs, not including Sonic, only serve hot dogs with chili.

The new place in town called Mutts Amazing Hot Dogs definitely delivers in the specialty hot dog department.

Yesterday I tried Mutts and I was pretty impressed. I had the Club Dog, Hot Wing Dog and an order of Duck Fat Fries with Truffle oil. I was happy with everything but I was blown away by the Duck Fat Fries. I'd never had anything cooked in duck fat before and these things were amazing. They were crisp and full of amazing flavor. The Hot Wing Dog was excellent and I was less thrilled with the Club Dog but it was still good.

All look pretty good. We have a place called Frank that i was liking a lot. Quality seemed to decrease. I need to return though and try again. Always like the Chicago Dogs.

Tried Man Bites Dog the other day which seems a little more similar to your place. The dogs had a charred burned flavor to them I didn't like, but I will probably try again.

Never tried truffle oil (or truffles for that matter) but there was an episode of that Chef Ramsey show were he blasted a girl for using and said it's all chemistry and no real truffles are used.

How can some of those concoctions from Mutts still be classified as a hot dog? It's basically just [_____] with hot dog meat. They are impressive but just too much other stuff and less hot dog.

Just give me a good quality dog with mustard and onions on a soft roll. Simple and tasty.

Ted's Hot Dogs is a locally owned chain in the Buffalo, NY region that is just perfect. They don't have anything fancy, just classic grilled hot dogs. The best to me. They also have one sole location in Tempe, AZ I've been to a couple of times since moving out West.

Could be because of the brand they use. Growing up in Western New York, I lived on Sahlen's brand hot dogs. I don't know if you can get them anywhere else. I know the Ted's in Tempe gets them shipped in from Buffalo specifically since that's the brand they use.

NJ is the Mecca of hot dog restaurants. For Texas Wieners you have places like the Hot Grill. Jimmy Buffs makes a kick ass Italian hot dog. Last but certainly not least there's Rutts Hutt...the ultimate deep fried dog.

There are probably 20+ quality dog joints in northern NJ alone.

Since everything is cooked over charcoal, it's even better.

I don't seem to see it on the menu, but what is on the Seattle dog? On a trip to there I recall that it was supposed to be cream cheese and bacon. I see the cream cheese, but looks like saurkraut on it?

I like either ketchup or mustard on a burned dog.

One word that explains why you're all wrong:

Wasses.

That is all.

I suppose if you mean a person with "taste", then yes he must be one of "those" people.

Re: Mutts Amazing Hot Dogs/The Hot Dog Thread

There's a vendor at the farmer's market close to my house that has amazing hot dogs. They're almost sausages, but the meat is ground just fine enough that it's a hot dog.

I do enjoy Nathan's though.

Not seriously since I ate hot dogs with ketchup only for a couple of decades there, but once I went to mustard (or mustard and chili) only, it was kind of a religious experience/seismic shift in the way I look at the world sort of thing.

I wouldn't really criticize something like that since most people would find my choices in sandwich/burger/sub condiments pretty disgraceful.

It looks like sauerkraut, spicy mustard, cream cheese and parsley.
