The 9th Annual New Jersey Hot Dog Tour

Saturday, September 22, 2012 was the 9th Annual, New Jersey Hot Dog Tour, and The Hotdogman made the trip south to participate. I thought I would hit my 100th hot dog joint on the tour, but there were only 6 stops instead of 8, so I still have 2 more to go. I made a […]

Wasses in Belfast, Maine

As we rolled back south from Down East Maine, we stopped at an iconic Maine joint in Belfast: Wasses. This is not the original Wasses, which has been in Rockland for over 40 years, this is the “other” Wasses, which has been around for a little over 20 years. This Wasses is located right on […]

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. It’s very rare to have my teen gals accompany me on a Hot Dog Story (neither of them eat hot dogs), so this was an extra special outing. It wasn’t […]

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. Donna Vickery, a long time food service worker and bartender, started Donna’s Dawgs a couple of years ago. Little Miss and […]

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. Now on it’s 3rd or 4th owner, the place doesn’t appear to have changed much. The current owner, one of the crew’s […]

Gary’s Best in New Bedford, MA

Stop number 22 on the National Hot Dog Month Tour was at Gary’s Best in New Bedford for some breakfast hot dogs. We stopped at Gary’s Best last summer, it’s the only stop where I had two hot dogs last summer. The reason I had two was the delicious and unique linguica sauce. Mrs. HDM, […]

Beezers in Northborough, MA

Day 17 of the National Hot Dog Month Tour found us in Northborough, Massachusetts at the home of a new, old local favorite: Beezers. Owners Steve and Linda Bock, both Chicago natives, served the Metrowest area’s only authentic Chicago hot dogs. Their hot dog business is named after their oldest daughter (now 31) whose nickname […]

Kool Kone, Wareham, MA

Day 15 of the National Hot Dog month Tour found me back in Wareham, MA at a popular summer shack called Kool Kone. If ever there was a day I’d like a hot dog delivered, today was the day. It was a hazy, hot, and humid New England Summer day- the kind best spent at […]

Flo’s Hot Dogs in Cape Neddick, Maine
