I was in the area yesterday and stopped into Costco of all places for a quick lunch. I had never been and was suprised there was such a lunch crowd. Great deal for a decent hot dog. They advertise it as a all beef 1/4 lb plus dog. It is on a nice steamed bun and you can top with onions, and the normal condiments. $1.50 with a large fountain drink with free refills. Hard to beat that for value.
Over the weekend we were at George's coney island in Worcester where they charge the same for a pencil thin dog-no drink. But it does have their tasty chili sauce and something about the ambiance of the place is cool. Id say the Costco dog was = to about 4-5 of these dogs though. Im not sure where they even find dogs this thin, ive never seen them anywhere like that. Seriously only slightly larger than a pencil.
