Adventures in Hot Dogs
I’m back! We just returned from a weekend with family in Connecticut, which means mani-pedi’s with my mom, morning runs on the beach and catching up with old friends.
But this post isn’t about my trip (more about that later)… it’s about the best hot dog I’ve ever had.
I’ve been seriously craving hot dogs lately, (no really, all the time, all I want are hot dogs?!) unfortunately, the DC area doesn’t offer much other than your typical run of the mill hot dog stand outside Union Station.
But in Connecticut they have Super Duper Weenie.
Super Duper Weenie initially started as a food truck but did so well that they had to expand into a permanent location. Their dogs are so good that Guy Fieri featured them on his hit show “Diners, Drive ins and Dives.”

My Grandpa had the “Chicagoan” that’s topped with crazy green lettuce, tomato, mustard, celery salt, hot relish and a pickle (classic Chicago style). We also had the “Dixie Dog” and the “New Englander.”

Who has your favorite hot dogs? Does anyone have any suggestions as to where this New England girl can find a good hot dog in DC? I can’t seem to shake this craving!
