So I've tried Gus', Pete's Famous, Sneaky Pete's and now Jimmy's on 6th Ave.
Gus' all the way - the .. meaty product on top tasted like a watery finely ground beef with little seasoning. Sauces were ok but bland. The chili slaw dog was much better. I am a fan of a griddled dog.
Pete's Famous all the way. Better than Gus' chili and messy in a delicious way. I can't really describe it. Griddled.
Sneaky Pete's - I think I ordered a two dog combo with fries about a month ago but honestly do not recall much about the food. I guess it was that boring. Yes, terrible review.
Jimmy's - this place always looks closed when I drive by, but I guess because that's in the afternoon. I got one of the all the way dogs which came with mustard, lots of kraut, and I forget what else. best part? The dog was grilled with a little char, which is paramount in a good dog and actually had snap. A friend turned me on to them (and also suggested they serve a deliciously greasy breakfast sandwich) and I can't wait to get back. Also, while not a lot of room, they have a little area to choke down your messy hotdog(s).
Bring on the hotdog comments!
