Hotdog around 9th & Chestnut?

joypirate | Jul 22, 2005 01:22 PM

Using 9th and Chestnut as a rough epicenter, please help me find, kind hounds, the best place to get a hotdog, inclusive of, but not limited to, various hot dog stands. Reading Terminal is fair game as well.

Sometimes, I just want a quick hot dog for lunch but I’m not necessarily ready to do an exhaustive cart-by-cart comparison. I’ve gone to the guy on the southwest corner of 9th and Market, and he was fine, but I’m looking for a place a cut above the rest, maybe where they grill the dog on those little hibachi’s like you see in NYC. Anyone?

I’ve got a hunch that Kibbitz might be my best non-cart bet, though it’d be hard to give up ordering one of my favorites to get a hotdog there (I’m currently hooked on their brisket sandwich with a side of gravy and for dessert, a poppyseed hammentashen).

Interestingly, I went into Citizen's bank a few weeks ago and they had a crockpot full of simmering hotdogs for customer appreciation day. I'm not gonna lie, I had two.
