We spent Saturday afternoon, July 26th, eating Hot Dogs at several locations along South Street, here in Philly. Our sampling began at O’Neals Pub, where we tried their Corndog.
We followed that with a stop at Primo Hoagies South Street to try the Sausage Sandwich.
A Hot Dog crawl on South Street wouldn’t be complete without a stop at Gus’s Hot Dog Cart, so that’s were we headed next. Our timing could not have been better. So far, we’d been ordering one, maybe two, of each dog with each of us getting a bite.
Gus wanted to give Joel a whole Hot Dog, but Joel told him it was too much to eat and he should give it to someone else. At this exact moment a woman walked up and said she’d like to buy a hot dog for a homeless person around the corner. She was very surprised and thankful when we insisted she take the dog for free.
The next stop was across the street at Johnny Rockets, which served a South Philly Style Dog with Sharp Provalone, fresh diced Tomatoes and roasted Long Hots.
Our crawl ended at the Bainbridge Street Barrel House, where they were offering two Special Hot Dogs, a Carolina Dog with BBQ Sauce, Slaw & Pickles and a Jalapeño Dog, with fresh Jalapeños and Cheese sauce. Of course we had to try them both.
