America’s Top Dog, Chamblee GA
America’s Top Dog has been on our Foursquare to-do list for quite some time. The last hot dog place we reviewed was a horrible disappointment and I was dreaming on a great hot dog topped with sauerkraut and spicy brown mustard while we drove there.
When we arrived, we were greeted by a man I could only assume was the owner. He had spotted us as first-time customers and proceeded to educate us about the menu. What was revealed to us is that their menu embodies how hot dogs are eaten not only around the U.S., but around the world. For instance, I learned that my favored combination is the New York Coney Island style.
Once your dog is done though, it’s up to you to put on the garnishments so if you want to start with a particular style the recommendations are there and then you can veer off the beaten path on your own.
Just about anything you can imagine to put on a hot dog is available to you. The dogs are pure beef and GRILLED (applause is appropriate). The guy is from NY/NJ or some Northern state and he has hot dogs DONE RIGHT!
Melanie went crazy with the garnishments (as you can see!) but she really enjoyed her dog.
1) She thought the casing was a little tough. Folks this isn’t your supermarket Oscar Mayer hot dog so there will be a casing that is somewhat unexpected to some.
I found some horseradish spicy brown mustard and the sauerkraut had a bite that took my breath away. THIS folks, is the way hot dogs should be. We pondered for a while why there’s a hot dog stand on every corner in NYC but in ATL you couldn’t find one to save your life!?!
Whoever is handling the social media for this place is also doing a bang-up job. Check out the sign when you exit urging diners to go to Urbanspoon and vote that they LIKE IT – we definitely will! Guten appetit!
