I stopped by to try Garage Dogs today for lunch. The place is very nice, very clean with tables both inside and on the sidewalk. Inside is somewhat confining, the place is long and narrow. The TV's were on but the sound was turned down, fortunately. The menu board is easy to read and they have a very nice selection of dogs, sausages and hamburgers. They even had a large selection of soft drinks, I need to try their root beer!!
I ordered the spicy Polish, ever in search of a replacement of my favorite Weiner Factory spicy Polish. I ordered it CCO, just like I always did at WF.
First, the sausage was very big, larger than WF’s. It came in this large French roll. It was a very large roll, thick and hard, and way too much bread for me, so I just ate the dog. (I’m still partial to WF’s soft egg bun). The chili was nice, it was all ground beef, but not spicy and there wasn’t as much of it as I would have liked. The cheese, which was nicely melted across the top, was fine. The onions were hardly noticeable.
The dog was very good. Although not spicy to my tastes, it was good quality and had nice flavor. Not up to the WF’s but better than I’ve gotten elsewhere. It had a nice crisp bite to it and it was quite filling, even without eating the roll.
So after all is said, it's not the Weiner Factory but I will go back and try a ripper or the foot long dog or maybe even a hamburger!
