These 7 Spots In Bucks County Are Proof Hot Dogs Are More Than Ketchup Vs. Mustard Debate

There are many things to enjoy as the weather warms up — one of which is hot dog season.

From backyards to ballparks, the hot dog is a summer favorite that's tough to beat. And if we can press pause on the mustard versus ketchup debate for just a moment, you'll discover there's no limit to what can be put on top, or even underneath, a hot dog.

Here are seven spots where you can find some of Bucks County's most over-the-top hot dogs:

Cheese Dawgs, Bristol

Cheese Dawgs in Bristol Borough serves dozens of uniquely topped signature and specialty hot dogs. Pictured from front to back is the Wacky Mac, Pleasant Pig and Philly Surf &amp; Turf paired with a pint of Naked Brewing's Louie Lime lager.

With more than three dozen signature and specialty "dawgs" to choose from, Cheese Dawgs has made a name for itself by serving up regular and footlong hot dogs piled high with some of the most unique topping combinations around. Here's a glimpse at what they offer:

  • Philly Surf &amp; Turf: all-beef hot dog with cod, mustard and homemade pepper hash

    The Top 5 Hot Dogs You Have To Try This Summer [Opinion]

    It sure felt like summer kicked spring to a sizzling hot concrete curb this week.

    Ancient Romans expected "dies caniculares" in late summer, and the Old Farmer's Almanac calls for days of the dog star to heat up around July 3. But when the stars of Sirius align, I fire up the grill.

    Some folks find refuge from the heat in a slice of cold watermelon or melt into a soothing scoop of ice cream when temps tip the scale, but I crave the meaty snap of the unofficial sandwich of summer — the hot dog.

    But is the hot dog really a sandwich?

    The debate among bread-filling fanatics can get heated. Merriam-Webster may define it as such but the actions of John Montagu say otherwise.

    The 11th Earl of Sandwich, an esteemed member of the House of Lords who co-founded a restaurant chain focused on — you guessed it — sandwiches, sells tuna melts and meatball grinders but hot dogs are notably missing from the franchise menu.

    The Royal We, seven generations removed from sandwich's namesake, has spoken.

    Despite Lord Sandwich's notion and the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council's insistence that the hot dog deserves its own category, I celebrate it as the king of summer handhelds.

    If Mount Everest were made of sandwiches, PB&amp;J would be base camp and the hot dog, capped with mustard and onions, would be its peak.

    Other toppings are certainly worthy of this rare air, but I'm not one who relishes ketchup despite its proud Pittsburgh heritage. The sugary staple's place at the picnic table is a debate for another column.

    Like condiments, not all dogs are created equal.

    As a resident of Lancaster's Cabbage Hill, home of the world's largest hot dog making operation, I consider myself qualified to rank brands based on flavor, snap, juiciness and nostalgia.

    Don't underestimate the value of nostalgia. Food is always better when it's personal, and a seemingly simple hot dog can take you back to a family picnic that is otherwise no longer possible.

    So, here are my Fav 5, just in time for your next summer cookout.

    5. Nathan's

    Its beefy goodness, along with a root beer, is the "tastetrack" of Coney Island, the capital city of hot dogs. A trip to the boardwalk is incomplete without one.

    4. Sabrett

    This is my baseball game hot dog. Each bite takes me back to chants of "Der-ek Je-ter" and another clutch RBI. I dub it "The Captain" of hot dogs, and it pairs perfectly with an overpriced stadium Budweiser.

    3. Hebrew National

    The best widely accessible supermarket hot dog in the business. The proprietary blend of spices created in 1905 sets this all-beef kosher dog apart from its contemporaries.

    Top it with kraut and pickles and enjoy with your favorite ice-cold pilsner.

    2. Wardynski's

    Polish butchers are the patron saints of Great Lakes-region hot dogs, and while Chicago gets a lot of deserved attention, I think the best dogs come from Buffalo.

    This beef and pork dog in natural sheep casing offers an exceptional snap when you take that first bite off the grill.

    Wegmans, a Rochester-based grocery chain that has expanded into southeastern Pennsylvania, carries them if you're not up for a western New York road trip.

    1. Sahlen's

    It takes a super sheep intestine to make a dynamic dog.

    Another Buffalo-based natural casing hot dog, the Sahlen Packing Co. Has been making my family's favorite frank since 1869, and I like to believe that my Civil War veteran great-great-grandfather, Conrad Seeber, enjoyed a Sahlen's snap during a Grand Army of the Republic reunion in south Buffalo's Cazenovia Park.

    Unfortunately, Wegmans stopped carrying this brand during the pandemic. But trust me, they're worth the road trip.

    Did you know that July 20 is National Hot Dog Day? Mark your calendar but don't wait that long to bun up to the summit of Mount Sandwich.

    Fire up the grill and let's get chubby!

    Iconic Houston Hot Dog Spot Opens New Location On Washington Ave.

    It was the first Friday night for their new location -- a tiny spot on the corner of an aging strip center on Houston's popular Washington Avenue.

    HOUSTON — Thousands of Houston hot dog fans are rejoicing after a beloved spot is now open after a long wait.

    Fans of YoYo's Hot Dogs stood in line Friday night at the intersection of Parker and Washington Avenue to get a taste of a Houston favorite that you can't get anywhere else.

    It was the first Friday night for their new location -- a tiny spot on the corner of an aging strip center where for $8 you can get a drink and one of YoYo's famous dogs.

    "My name is Danny Kim. I own the hot dog shop YoYo's Hot Dogs. People started calling me 'YoYo,' so, I'm YoYo," owner Danny Kim said. "I'm very excited and my customers are excited, too."

    It all started for Kim in a parking lot in Rice Village -- it's the place where most fans had their first YoYo experience.

    "I'm seeing this line and I'm, like, what's going on? And then, someone is, like, 'It's hot dogs." I'm, like, hot dogs? Are you kidding me," one customer said.

    Yes, hot dogs -- AKA "Heaven on Earth."

    It's much more than an Oscar Meyer on a piece of bread. YoYo is a professionally trained sushi chef from Los Angeles and he created something unique -- something you won't find anywhere else.

    "I put my sushi experience into the hot dog," Kim said. "We put some cream cheese on the bun, then the all-beef hot dog and we put some caramelized onion, Korean-infused caramelized onion, we put some Indian/Pakistan fried onion on top of it. And we put some sushi experience, sauce on top."

    The new spot opened Thursday night after an ownership dispute with a former partner was finally settled. YoYo said he sold out by 12:30 a.M. And had to lock the door earlier than planned.

    "We sold about 800 hot dogs yesterday," he said.

    He said he expected to sell more on Friday night.

    For first-timers, YoYo insists customers try his hot dog as it comes -- with everything on it. If you don't like it after you try it, he'll make you another one to your specifications for free.
