Anyhoo, my friend and KOTK teacher, Kathi (most of you know her as Ms.Kappy) gave me a newspaper article about a month ago with all of the best hotdog joints in Nashville. We also saw this place on the FOX News on Friday night.
Here I am. Don't you just love those hotdog flower boxes. Now this is not a sit down hotdog restaurant, this is considered a hotdog street vendor and there are no tables. You bring a blanket or your own lawn chairs. Street vendors can't have tables. Okay, I'm just going to tell you that this place has a trendy tree hugger vibe to it. I'm just sayin'.
They had all these people hula hooping in the yard. The hula hoops were available for the enjoyment of all. Lawnmower Man insisted that I hula hoop. All the other women were doing it and I guess he thought I should join in. And let me just say that this was the best hula hoop ever. This was a high quality hoop. Some ladies from Hooprama were there. Hula hoop exercise class? Who knew? We need this in the Hill. I could do this type of exercise.
This was my chili cheese slaw dog. LM got the chicago. He had two. It was grilled. I prefer my dawg cooked on one of those roller things or steamed. We make grilled dawgs at home, but I don't want them like that from a restaurant/vendor. They also didn't have any onion rings or french fries. You have to have chips. I know they can only do so much inside a VW van, but I have high expectations. They also serve canned drinks and LM knew this so he packed his own cooler of drinks. $$$ We had to save money somewhere because we spent about $5 worth of gas to buy $10 dollars worth of hotdogs in Nashville. I prefer a fountain drink when I'm eating a dawg.
I can't recommend this establishment. I could make you this dawg in my backyard.
And my question to you faithful hotdog review blog reader...
Would you eat at I Dream of Weenie?
