Foot Long Chile Dog at Dog House Drive In in Albuquerque, New Mexico

I'm still on the Green Chile Cheeseburger trail in New Mexico. But I couldn't resist straying off the trail and trying out Dog House Drive In on old Route 66 in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

This isn't the same dark chili with beans sauce we would get back in California. This is red New Mexico chili sauce. It's thin and spicy, and it goes really well with the split grilled skinless beef hot dog. It's a real treat, and Dog House Drive-In is easy to find right on old Route 66 near old town Albuquerque. It's worth the stop! And check out the sign at at when the neon doggie wags his tail.

Fat Tuesday Italian Sausage Dog at Jimmy Buff's in West Orange, New Jersey

Fat Tuesday Sausage at Jimmy Buff's in West Orange, New Jersey

I got lucky! I was in West Orange, NJ to visit the Edison Museum and it's around the corner from a unique sausage treat. But that wasn't the lucky part. The lucky part was arriving on a Tuesday which is Fat Tuesday at Jimmy Buff's Italian Style Jersey dogs -- double the sausage for free!

Floating Islands at Terre Hill Family Restaurant

"Come Eat" at Terre Hill Family Restaurant in Lancaster County
"Come Eat"
It seems like many of the restaurants in Lancaster County's Amish Country are buffets, and I wasn't up for that much food today. Instead, I tracked down a place where the locals eat, and it seems like I was the only tourist there. Read my full review of Terre Hill Family Restaurant in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania after the break.

The cool sweetness of coleslaw can provide a balance to the spicy heat of chili, and that's exactly what it does on the chili burgers and dogs at Brooks' Sandwich house. Read my review of the Chili Coleslaw Burger at Brooks' Sandwich House in Charlotte, North Carolina as seen on Burger Land with George Motz after the break.

Sriracha Chicken Nachos at 3-D Dogs


I was close to the Gulf Coast but first I had to get an early dinner. Where to grab some grub? I checked Urbanspoon's list of best cheap eats in Pensacola and found 3-D Dogs. Since's it's right on the way to the beach, why not give it a try? Read my full review of the Sriracha Chicken Nachos at 3-D Dogs in Pensacola after the break.

A lot of places have been around a long time, but few have as much history as Chris' Hot Dogs in Montgomery, Alabama. And you'd be hard-pressed to find a friendlier place to eat, too. Read my full review of Chris' Hot Dogs after the break.

Hillbilly Hot Dogs in Lesage, WV

Hillbilly Hot Dogs in Lesage, West Virginia is a real hoot. I stopped there last year for lunch during a cross-country road trip. It's not far from the 64 interstate freeway so if you are driving through West Virginia near Ohio you should make a visit. I first heard of Hillbilly Hot Dogs on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives with Guy Fieri.

Fried Reuben Ripper at Fab Hot Dogs in Reseda CA

I'm a big fan of Diners Drive-Ins and Dives although once in a while I don't find the places as top-notch as Guy Fieri thinks they are. So I am glad to report that I had an excellent lunch yesterday at Fab Hot Dogs in Reseda, California (in the San Fernando Valley just north of Los Angeles city and near Hollywood).

Fab Hot Dogs is in the corner of a shopping center on Victory Blvd., so there's plenty of parking. The place is clean and decorated pictures of the youth sports teams they sponsor. It wasn't crowded when I got there although I understand that even when it's crowded, the line moves pretty fast. There are some tables outside, too, although they look out over the parking lot.

You can get the dogs in a variety of flavors, and in 7" or foot long. You can also ask for any of the hot dogs as "Rippers" which means they are fried, although only the 7" dogs can be Rippers. I got the Reuben as a Ripper, which uses a beef and pork sausage which was really tasty. They piled on the sauerkraut and Swiss cheese, and there was bacon there, too. I'm not sure why there was bacon on there; maybe if you order a Ripper you get bacon, too?

So I really liked this place and would go back if I'm nearby.

What's the best fried hot dog you've ever had? Let me know in the comments below.
