Casey’s Diner in Natick, MA

The 31st and final stop on the National Hot Dog Month 2012 Tour was at the place where it all started for me and hot dogs: Casey’s Diner in Natick, MA. This year’s grand finale lacked the fanfare of the 2011 tour: there were no reporters or fans- just the regulars at the most iconic […]

Dog Gone Ron’s in Needham, MA

National Hot Dog Month Tour stop number 30 brought me to my hometown of Needham, MA to a little hot dog cart known as Dog Gone Ron’s.

Naughty Dawgs Express in Dartmouth, MA

National Hot Dog Month Tour stop number 29 brought myself, Little Miss, the Photobomber, and Miss Camera Shy to Naughty Dawgs Express in Dartmouth, MA.

Donna’s Dawgs in Middleboro, MA

National Hot Dog Month Tour stop number 28 brought myself and Little Miss to Donna’s Dawgs in Middleboro, MA. One word describes this little hot dog stand on route 28 (and it’s owner): ADORABLE.

Paul named his new business- only open […]

Windy City Eats in Weymouth, MA

┬áThe 24th stop on the National Hot Dog Month Tour found us in Weymouth, MA at a Chicago Hot Dog joint called Windy City Eats. I have been here before, with Mrs. HDM, but that was in the days before Hot Dog Stories were on video. Since I like Chicago Dogs so much and since […]

Hot Dog Annie’s in Leicester, MA

The National Hot Dog Month Tour’s 23rd stop was Hot Dog Annie’s in Leicester, MA. This iconic little shack has been serving up hot dogs in this Worcester area community for 63 years.

Gary’s Best in New Bedford, MA
