Redbones 'Hound Dog' an insult to hounds

Bob MacAdoo | Nov 2, 2011 10:21 AM

For $5, the Redbones truck in the Back Bay offers a "Hound Dog" with "chili" & cheese. Yeesh, what a misnomer on all accounts. The dog is a standard 2 oz. link, steamed (i.e., nothing special.) The chili is beans. No chili meat. No chili flavor. Just pintos in a sauce vaugely reminiscent of food service taco spice. The bun is wonder bread's version or its unseemly cousin. Though my office is 40 feet away and three floors up from the 'Bones truck, the bun did not hold up under the weight of the 'chili.'

Let's call this "Hound" what it is - a dog with no bite.
