Retro Dog

He said…I love a good hot dog, and I’ve been wanting to check out Retro Dog since they opened back in the spring.  I finally had the chance last weekend.

Carolina Dog – char-grilled natural casing dog topped with homemade Coney sauce coleslaw and yellow mustard

This is one of the better lunches I’ve had in a while.  I enjoyed both dogs, however, I have to give the edge to the Carolina Dog due to the creamy coleslaw and tangy yellow mustard.  And what better way to enjoy a hot dog than with an ice cold root beer.  The only criticism I have of the dogs is the bun, which is so large it almost overwhelms the dog.  In other words, the bread to dog ratio was off a bit.  Overall, I liked Retro Dog, and I would go back.  I haven’t had a chance to try Happy Dog yet, but it is next on my hot dog list!
