Where to find a hotdog?

By 15 September 2012 49

Its a silly question I know but Im stumped.  I have a little man who wants to go out for a hotdog for his birthday.  I cant think of where to take him.  Other than a bowling alley or an ice cream/frozen yogurt shop (I know, weird huh!) I cant think of anywhere that serves them.

Can anyone recommend a location for us?  A restaurant would be preferable to a side of the road location since he wants something a little more special than Mum’s at home version.

Cheers

Haha it appears some people in this thread are new to the interwebs. Smart arse comments is what makes this system of pipes and tubes run. Also porn.

thanks for the helpful advice. think we’ll try the tracking station.

to those with the blatant unhelpful advice, do you fell better now that you’ve ruined yet another thread? just cant keep the smart arse comments to yourselves can you?

As a frequent poster of smart arse, blatantly unhelpful comments, I feel like I speak on behalf of everyone when I say, yes we do feel better now, and no, we can’t just keep the smart arse comments to ourselves.

There’s a tiny cafe/takeaway in Bailey’s Arcade that does a good hotdog.

Please everyone post secret hotdog lcations here. It has become a lost form of respectable dining in Canberra.

The cafe (can’t remember the name) at Centrepoint in Civic serves hot dogs. This cafe has garnered some notoriety here at the RiotACT, so that narrows the field somewhat.

BTW, whatever hapened to the Danish hot dog?

If you want to make them yourself Wollies sells ‘American’ style hot dogs which I really like. Closest thing to they type of hot dogs I had as a kid.

Yum Yum Tree, that’s it!! I kept thinking Lemon Tree however, that’s a UK railway platform shop!! In addition to great hotdogs, Yum Yum Tree do great meat rolls and other goodies.

Not fair. I just shot a mouthful of Boag’s Premium over my keyboard, which is a serious abuse of alcohol. :-)

I guess I’ll just have to head out to Costco and grab another slab, which segues nicely into the hotdog theme.

I believe that you can get into the cafe area of Costco without a membership, and they do hotdogs. Not great hotdogs, but they’re OK and they also have bottomless softdrinks in big mugs.

I suppose the soft drinks don’t need bottoms if the hot dogs have piles of them.

Anyone? The bald headed bastard would not serve me unless I parked my V8 Falcon down the street from his van, but his double-dog with cheese, bacon and BBQ sauce was worth it.

If you fancy a drive to Sydney, there is a place called Snag Stand on the 5th floor of the Centrepoint tower which also has a good selection.

Fairly sure there’s a Snag Stand opening in the Woden Plaza food court. Think it was where the seafood place was, next to Kingsley’s.

Totally on the money Farnarkler, modern science has pretty much proven their pork rolls with apple sauce, onions and crackling are amongst the most delicious things on the planet, if not THE most delicious.

Wig and Pen. Young fella can have one of their hot dogs, you can have ploughmans lunch and a pint. Win/win.

This website can never endorse the Wig and Pen. Explaining why would require briefing counsel so don’t ask.
