Any personal experience with these places?
I've lived here 9 years and had not heard of 2 of these places, Two Hippees & the Chicago Dog place. Heard of Fines Cellar but never thought of it as a Hot Dog Joint. I'll be downtown on Thursday & will try Two Hippees & Report. The one on Bell Road is 50 miles from me. It's a BIG Valley of the Sun out here!
Fines Cellar has no interest to me at all for a hot dog place.
There are plenty of other places out here that serve Chicago/ Vienna style dogs that are more "Roadfood" in nature.
As Promised, here's a review of Two Hippies Magic Mushroom in Phoenix @ Indian School & 8th St.
The place is "UNIQUE". A very small Hole-in-the Wall decorated by someone on the Drugs of choice from the '60's & '70's. Psycho-delic! Not much seating to speak of. A Small front Patio & a smaller Back Patio with bar stools facing a board that serves as a table. They feature only 3 items- Steakburgers, All Beef Hebrew National 5/1 Hot Dogs & Chicken Breast Sandwiches + Sides & Shasta Sodas. (No name brands.). ALL
ITEMS ARE $3.50 regardless of toppings and the Combo meals include Shoestring Fries & soda for $5.00. That's it!!!Steakburgers include Magic Mushroom, Roasted Green Chili, Bacon, Greek, Guacamole, Cheese, Veggie & Plain, All can be topped with Lettuce Tomato & Liquid Sunshine Sauce. Hot Dog toppings other than the normal stuff like Mustard, Kraut, Chili etc include Magic Mushroom, Jalapeno & Cheese, "Georgia" which is some kind of pesto & Bacon/Cheese.
I ordered the Magic Mushroom with Mustard & Onions Combo. The Dog is split & Flat Grilled to get a char on it. It was served on a room temp small hoagie roll, not a bun. It came to me without the shrooms. Had to take it back to get the schrooms put on it. Ate it open faced. The roll is not a good fit with the rest of it. Didn't eat the roll. Nothing Magic about the Schrooms. just out of a can & seasoned a little. The fries were non-discript and hard. The seating was uncomfortable and it's hard to eat off a board on the wall. Overall a below average meal. Not worth a 45 mile round trip drive.
I will go back one more time to try the Steakburger if I'm nearby. They sell a lot more of those based on what I saw coming out of the kitchen. They looked pretty good and several people said they were good.
Worth a one time visit to see the place, but would not go out of my way to go there again.
