Where to find a hotdog?

By saraj - 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

If you’ve got a membership, costco has great ones.

Any servo/7-11 type store will probably have the nasty ones

Um, the gentle jokes didn’t ruin the thread…A lot of people enjoy both the meaty information and the saucy jokes. The thread of sausages that is RiotACT needs the condiment of humour and the roll of sarcasm before being consumed by the salivating mouth of the eyes. Otherwise it would be very bland.

Not so much the sauerkraut of exasperation or the mustard of condemnation though.

Best wishes for a fun party for your child.

Good choice not going to Frand and Beanz, they are terrible, and ordinary service

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.

+1 for Tidbinbilla. I regularly go out there for a good hotdog with bacon and cheese on a nice soft white hotdog bun.

Also, +1 for the obnoxious high and mighty wankers. Just cause they’re mummy never payed attention to them……
I know what a hotdog is made from, and I still eat it cause it tastes good. It tastes even better on that preservative filled pure white bun too, with sauce AND mustard. Perhaps if some weren’t trying to choke down Lentil Dogs on Gluten free bread sticks they would be less angry and obnoxious and simply answer the question and keep their mouth shut.

I love <3 bum holes and hart hotdogs almost as much. Making him your own is best bet. Zeirholes is decent but doubtful to satisfy a kids needs. Stay away from goodberrys.

Phil does pretty good hotdogs. You’ll find him outside the Private Bin most weekends. A good bloke too, he often lets you sponge a few smokes off him if you ask nicely.

Sorry, probably not the best recommendation, but thanks for the memories.

I wouldn’t mind stopping off outside the Private Bin, but i’m having trouble getting up to 88mph down Northbourne.

What is the perfect hotdog?
In fact, OP, what is your little one looking for?

I think it is:
a) the soft moist bun
b) the savoury taste of American mustard
c) the sausage that has a juicy snap when you bite down on it

Maybe mum needs to try harder to give the little one the perfect hotdog.

The bun and the mustard are easy to come by (from your local supermarket) and the sausage needn’t be expensive.
However, you do need to pay attention to how the sausage is cooked (e.g. simmering water, right amount of time).

A perfect hotdog is 50% taste, 50% texture.

I did not know that you could get hot dogs at Tidbinbilla. I luuuurve hot dogs and will be there at the first available opportunity.

My suggestions were going to be, The Wig & Pen, huge fantastic euro dog but not such a great spot for the wee one. You could also invest in a thermos that is big enough to hold food (from somewhere like Howard’s Storage World) and dine alfresco. Last suggestion is Wendy’s at Woden Westfield….again, not such a great spot.

Whilst on the topic of hot dogs, can someone please explain the addition of cheese? I have never ever had the desire to have cheese on a hot dog. My toppings ideally are tomato sauce, onion relish and mayo. If I’m feeling gourmet I’d go with mayo and Harissa.

Costco makes a lovely hot dog and it has a self serve area with lots of different sauces, an onion machine and self serve soft drink. It’s not the most exciting place, but the hot dogs are good. I don’t think you need to be a member to enjoy that service but you best call them to ask first if you consider this option.

Enjoy

The Wendy Franchises usually sell Hot Dogs and then your young fella can have a ice cream afterwards.

There you go, an actually helpful post. Don’t despair, we are not all a&^%holes on here.
