Coleslaw on Hot Dogs Tue, 03/23/04 11:48 AM (permalink)
Do any of you guys like coleslaw on your hot dogs. Here in this area of North Carolina, coleslaw is offered as a topping. I really like it on mine. I like to make my own coleslaw though. I like a hot dog
grilled or broiled and served with lots of mustard, onion and coleslaw on a toasted bun.

    Here in Michigan I've never seen a dog offered that way... Though amongst my web travels I've seen alot of places that offer it. Though I prefer the Chili Dog, I'm going to try it that way atleast once! Actually sounds fairly refreshing!

      In North Carolina, slaw goes on the bbq, too.

        I've seen this configuration on hot dogs mostly in the South, but it also seems to be popular in Danbury, CT, at[url='http://www.roadfood.com/Reviews/Overview.aspx?RefID=150']JK's[/url], on the hot dog in the background, atop the layer of chili:

          I'd much rather have slaw on my dog than sauerkraut, and I was raised in the mid-atlantic region. Haven't been there in a few years, but I love the slaw dogs at the Varsity in Atlanta. A slaw dog is also on the menu at SuperDuperWeenie in Connecticut.

            Michael, is that chili with beans in that picture? Or is it baked beans? Because I like that exact configuration of dog on a toasted bun with baked beans, slaw, minced onion and mustard.
            Maaaannnnnnn, some kinda good.

              You can also get a dog with slaw at the Ritzy Lunch in downtown Clarksburg, WVA. But the soft mushy buns at Ritzy don't quite measure up to the beauties toasted to perfection at JK's.

                I'm a chili-cheese-slaw dog guy. Preferably at the Varsity in Atlanta. The slaw just seems to add a refreshing tang to the dog.

                  Hi Everyone,

                  You have to come to the Lexington Market in Baltimore where you can get a kosher hot dog with Russian dressing and cole slaw. Sounds a little strange but it is great.

                      I live in the Triangle now and have 2 ways of eating dogs. If I am at Sonic Drive-in, it's a footlong all the way, which is mustard, onions, coleslaw, chili, and cheese.
                      If I am at Cook Out, it's a footlong with onions, mustard, and coleslaw. I am a big time slaw dog eater... and sometimes I will even put fries on the dog if I have room.

                        Where I grew up in Eastern KY slaw and chili were put on both hot dogs and hamburgers. Didn't think it was strange until I "got out into the world."

                          The corporate entity I used to work for shipped me to Danville, VA, right on the NC border, a few years back on a troubleshooting mission.... being from Michigan, I was amazed to order a dog "With the works"... and find out it included mustard, relish, chili sauce and coleslaw..... Actually, I grew to be quite fond of them.... but back home in MI, people look at you like you are nuts if you order a similar dog.... so I make them at home now.... one thing I still haven't figured out about southern dogs.... why do so many of them have the red food coloring in them?

                            Talespinner,
                            Welcome to our midst! There are quite a number of decent mom-and-pop eateries in Danville, if the chains haven't run all the good ones out of business in the last few years.
                            I'm sure you've seen a product in local grocery stores' packaged meat section called livermush (some brands go as liver mush and some others by liver pudding = same general thing). If not, it's ubiquitous by the time you get as far south as Reidsville, which is hardly 20 miles from Danville.
                            So, to answer your question (in a fashion that the regulars here will understand: it's a standing joke with me) - they color them so you can tell them from livermush when you fry 'em up.
                            It might actually be more truth than fiction... y' never know!
                            Hypothetically, Ort. Carlton in Athens, Georgia.
                            P. S. I've never tried putting slaw on a livermush sandwich. Maybe I oughta spring for that concoction tomorrow at my favorite local eatery!

                              Thanks for the welcome, and yes I have seen livermush in the stores in Danville.... I didn't try it... but then I never ordered brains with my eggs for breakfast at the diners I frequented either.... heh... I plan on going back there for a few weeks this summer.... and yes, there are quite a few Mom and Pop type places still in existence there... including a BBQ place called Short Sugars that I just fell in love with and plan on making my first stop at....

                                Sandy's in Columbia, SC serves both slaw and sauerkraut as toppings on their hot dogs.

                                  Having lived in NJ all my life I have sampled (many times) some excellent hot dogs and toppings. I have never come across cole slaw as a topping for hot dogs. Since I have tried all combinations of toppings on dogs, I plan on trying cole slaw. I am road tripping to Maryland, North and South Carolina in a few weeks. Any spots anyone can recommend are appreciated.

                                    howard8,
                                    The only place in N.J. that I know of that serves slaw dogs is Checkers. It is a burger chain. The 2 locations that I know of are Rt 1 in Linden and Rt22 on the Union/Springfield border. I believe they use Hormel brand franks.

                                        I personally never cared for slaw on my hotdog. Many member of my family do. I just like a dog with mustard, onions and chili !!!

                                          JOHNNY & HANGES makes a slaw dog. They are in Hawthorn New Jersey. I had it just slaw and mustard and it was just OK I will have to try it with chile and slaw. Which reminds me of a story...

                                            I'm not much of a cole slaw lover, even with sea food. I'd rather have my cabbage in the form of sauerkraut when on a hot dog, and I remember a hot red cabbage topping that Nthans used to have. That was good. Mix in a little spicy brown deli mustard and wow !!!

                                              Willy. How long has Swanky Frank's been in Westport? I thought Norwalk was their sole location.

                                                It's on the Post Rd. to the east of the connector. I think it has been there 3 or more years save for a period when the partners had a falling out and they changed the name for a bit. It's not bad, but I still head down to the original in Norwalk, or just up the road to Rawley's or Super Duper Weenie. My kids like it fine, but it is not quite as good as the original.

                                                  I just realized why Swanky Franks sounded so familiar to me. Back in the 1940s there used to be small, white trucks parked along highways in western Connecticut and Westchester County, New York that sold hot dogs to motorists. They were called Swanky Frankie.

                                                      Jeez, ya learn something new here at Roadfood every day! I love slaw on my BBQ sandwiches but have never topped a dog with it. My fave hot dog topping (and this is a once or twice a year kinda thing) is to throw some sour cream and onion dip on there.

                                                        Super Duper Weenie in Fairfield CT has a "Dixie Dog" which comes with slaw over a layer of chili.
                                                        Dogs are from Miller's Provisions in Stratford.
                                                        A great combination with home-made indredients.
                                                        Well worth $3.25

                                                        The "O" in Pittsburgh also serves a slaw dog.
                                                        Had one there 2 years ago on my way through.

                                                          in montreal PQ a true all-dressed hot dog would be a steamed dog, with mustard, chopped onions and topped with cole slaw

                                                          another variation is our version of the michigan dog, made with a foot long roasted bread, 2 roasted dogs, chili sauce, cole slaw and french fries on top

                                                            In West Virginia, 80% of the hot dogs I sell come with chili and slaw. Offering alternatives at $1 including root beer and chips, 10% of customers recently walked away saying a hot dog could not be a hot dog without slaw and chili. If people say they want chili, cheese, and onions, I know they hail from Cincinnati; if they want saurkraut and onions and mustard, I know they come from New York. Hot dogs are incredibly regional.
