Well jfood gave it a shot. On the way out today there was no line so he figured, let's give it a try. First bad sign was they paced it in a MV to re-heat, second bad sign was the rye bread was cold on top of the MV, third bad sign, no thin layer of fat.
Then the first bite. Blech. Texture was half rubber, half hard. Flavor was very smokey (hey you have to give something positive) but almost flavorless and not anywhere close to what jfood has eaten in the past at the deli in NYC.
So jfood would give this a 2 on a scale of 1-10. It's 4X the price os the hot dog and the hot dog would be a better choice at the same price. Definitely not worth it.
Oh well, at least that to-do has been checked and now jfood can stay with the $1.50 jumbo hot dog and soda.
