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, Little Miss, and myself hopped in the car early this morning with the sole purpose of getting hot dogs for breakfast.
Gary’s Best is a tiny but tidy little shack.
Gary’s Best has a simple menu that highlights the hot dog. They are in their 28th year of the hot dog business. Owner Joe Franco and I talked for quite a while, but he was a tad camera shy this morning. Rachel stood in for Joe as Gary’s Best’s spokesperson.
Rachel got an official tour tee shirt for being such a good sport.
She told me about their new Rodeo Dog which has honey mustard barbecue sauce and Onion Crunch.
I looked around while I was waiting. Gary’s Best has a lot of old Sunbeam bread memorabilia.
This 1957 Sunbeam Bread Trailer is scheduled to be restored soon.
At 10 in the morning, there aren’t a ton of people in the spacious dining room.
Rachel gave us our dogs and we sat to chow down.
We chowed down as a family this morning.
Owner Joe Franco answered a lot of questions on camera for the “dogumentary,” but preferred to let the hot dogs (and Rachel) be the star of today’s video. That didn’t stop him from yukking it up with the lovely Mrs. Hotdogman! Joe’s a great guy who does a lot for the New Bedford community.
Enjoy today’s video.
HAPPY NATIONAL HOT DOG MONTH!!!!
