Celebrating National Hot Dog Day at the Reading Terminal Market

Joel Eating a Dog We took a Hot Dog Crawl through the Reading Terminal Market on Wednesday, July 23rd to check out the specials and, of course, eat Hot Dogs.

Reading Terminal Market Hot Dogs

While there are four places to get Hot Dogs in the Market – Franks A Lot, Hershel’s East Side Deli, Smucker’s Meats & Grill and Wursthaus Schmitz – we visited the two that were offering buy-one-get-one-free first, so we were too full to visit the other two.

Texas Tommy Hot Dog Onions & Mustard Hot Dog

We started our crawl at Franks A Lot, where we had a Texas Tommy, with bacon & a cheezewiz like sauce, and a plain dog with onions & mustard. We then made our way to Wursthaus Schmitz, were the dogs are huge and served with sauerkraut & spicy mustard. In hindsight, next time we’ll only get one at each stand and make Wursthaus Schmitz the last stop.
