We’re ending our month long celebration of Hot Dogs with a Safari to NEPA, to visit a pair of famous Hot Dog restaurants in Scranton.
We’re also going to stop by a place in Wilkes-Barre that’s been serving dogs since the mid 60′s.
It turns out there are four additional hot dog stands, between Carbondale and Wilkes-Barre. That’s at least seven hot dog stands within an hours drive… this place seems like a Hot Dog Paradise! We plan on sampling as many dogs as we can while we’re up there.
On our way back, time permitting, we’ll be stopping off in downtown Allentown to visit another famous local Hot Dog joint. Here’s our itinerary, italicised restaurants are optional:
