    In May of 2004, "emsmom" responded to a thread I'd started about "Regional Favorites" and she introduced this California boy to the wonder that is cole slaw on a hot dog. Again, Thank you emsmom!

      Even though most of the time I enjoy my hot dogs with mustard only, I have had coleslaw on a hot dog and enjoyed it. Most of the time I've had coleslaw on a dog, it's sat on top of a spicy chili. I will be going to North Carolina for a wedding next month and hope to get away to sample some of the local fare. I prefer the sweet, creamy coleslaw.

      Leethebard, I know of at least 2 places in N.J. that you can get slaw on a dog. There are probably many more, but I don't usually seek it out. One is Checker's, a hamburger chain. They use a pedestrian Hormel dog and top it with chili and slaw. The place I had a dog with coleslaw and chili was Amazing Hot Dog. Both the chili and coleslaw were exceptional. I've also had this combination at Rosco's in Connecticut. Although I sampled dogs from nine places that day, I had the regular dog at Rosco's with mustard only. Someone gave me a bite of their dog with slaw and chili, and it was excellent. I would definitely have this dog again if I return. And at Amazing, it would be a tough decision between their Reuben Dog and their chili slaw dog (Caped Crusader).

      At home, I've made dogs (all beef and beef/pork) and topped them with very spicy chili from Father & Son in Linden and cole slaw. The cold creamy coleslaw mixes well with the chili and reduces some of the excess heat.

        I heard a story - not sure how true it is. But, a few years ago in NYC, an out of towner walked inside a deli and ordered a hot dog with ketchup and cole slaw. He was seen later, hanging from a street lamp on Third Avenue.

            Oooooooooooo.........one of my absolute favorites....slaw dogs. First had one in Panama at the PX about 20 years ago. You can cheat and use KFC slaw, but I prefer to buy the bag of coleslaw (Dole's with cabbage, red cabbage, and shredded carrots) and make it with Marzetti's Slaw Dressing....this is the ONLY brand of slaw dressing that I like. My preference is for a sweeter/creamy coleslaw. Anyways, I prefer to use either Nathan's or Sabrett hot dogs on a small sub roll (hot dog bun is too small). Next add chili, hot sauce, cheese/cheez whiz/velveeta (whichever you prefer), onion (raw), Crystal Louisiana Hot Sauce, Gulden's Spicy Brown Mustard (plain yellow mustard will do if that's all you've got), and a generous helping of that sweet, creamy coleslaw. Grab a knife, fork, spoon, and a lot of napkins, and enjoy. One hint to improve the taste a bit more.....you can either deep fry the hot dog, or you can boil or nuke as you normally would, then pan fry the dogs in a small amount of veg oil to brown and crisp up a bit.....OMG...may have to make some this weekend!!!

              I love slaw dogs as well and in NJ I've found them at Big Daddy's Dogs in Little Falls, Papaya King in Clifton, Amazing Hot Dogs, and New England Hot Dog Company in Freehold. The slaw definitely mixes well with spicy chili and complements it very well.

                  I've never heard of slaw on a chili dog until I came here... So curiosity got the best of me, and I love it! Though I used sweet slaw, alot of the pics posted look like a vinegar based slaw. (Sorry, like me sweet slaw)... But it's always entertaining to see how the rest of the states enjoy a good chili dog!

                              Dearfolk,
                              Now, finally seriously... I've never had a slaw dog that I can recall, but The Varsity locations in Atlanta and Athens sell a lot of 'em.
                              I would be really happy to find a place that did up their slaw dogs with a mustardy slaw, so there would be no need for extra mustard on the dog.
                              Methinks I need to try this at Allen's Hamburgers one sunny day by adding mustard to their cole slaw and schlumping it onto a poor unsuspecting dog, awaiting my devour from its hiding place inside two slices of Luna Bakery Marbled Rye Bread.
                              Almost Poetically, Ort. Carlton in Amazing Athens.
                              P. S. I went to Atlanta for a week. Report(s) to follow. Burp.

                                  Go to the restaurant review section and take a look at the slaw dog picture at Johnnie's Grill in El Reno Oklahoma. It's a different kind of slaw that is kinda sweet. It's been years since I've had one but I loved it. They are very popular in El Reno. There is a review of another grill.... I think it's Sid's, also in El Reno that serves a very similar looking slaw dog but I've not tried it. Johhnie's Grill used to be a tiny little hole in the wall back in the early days, maybe 8' wide by 25' long. Seating consisted of 7 or 8 stools at the counter. From your seat you could nearly touch the cook on the back while flipping those onion fried burgers. Johnnie would place a tennis ball sized meat ball on the grill, top it with onions then smash it with that big spatula. That little hole in the wall did a tremendous amount of business for a little oil patch town in Oklahoma.

                                        Our slaw dog is probably our biggest seller. The majority of our customers want slaw on their dogs. They even add it to our kraut dogs.

                                          Any kind of slaw works on a dog. Slaw is a big seller here also. Mustard slaw is most requested.

                                            Pop,

                                            What brand frank do you serve? Size, composition (pork/beek?), and method of preparation. Other condiments available? Brand of roll, and whether toasted or steamed? Oh....and exact location and hours. Thanks,

                                            The Bear

                                              I haven't had slaw on a dog in years. I would prefer a sweet slaw to give the hot dog a sweet and salty taste. The only place I've seen slaw on a hot dog is at a place called Pinks.

                                                Living in Myrtle Beach, we have tons of visitors and transplants from
                                                everywhere but here....it always amazes me how few of them haven't heard
                                                of slaw on a dog.

                                                But even fewer have ever heard of Carolina style...slaw and chili, on dogs
                                                or burgers. Dang I'm hungry now.

                                                  growing up in Upstate, NY, I was carefully taught that only mustard accompanied hotdogs...unless you were one of those ketchup people, who clearly had no idea what they were doing. I grew up believing that the measure of a hotdog is the quality of the meat. So, toppings like chili and cheese was for inferior hotdogs. Store/national brand = chili dogs, quality hotdogs = mustard only on split top buns.

                                                  Then I moved south...

                                                  and, well, the meat in the dogs are infact inferior to what I grew up on, but the chili was great and I learned to love the complimentary cool of the coleslaw that sat atop the chili. All the way, please!

                                                  So, when in NC, go for it. It's delicious! Just don't expect me to pile chili nor slaw on my Hofmann Franks and Coneys (white hots), nor any other fine German hotdogs. But, I still can't think of a better friday night hs football meal than two dogs all the way. NC style! Brings back fond memories.

                                                    It tastes even better on a great tasting hotdog...the taste of the hot dog DOES come through and the slaw and chili adds to the whole experience!!!

                                                      gonna disagree there, LeetheBard. High quality dogs need no toppings and indeed the taste buds are distracted from the hotdog when chili is put on top. Chili, which I love, is full of spices and heat, and will mask any hotdog. No way around it. Chili is too spicy NOT to cover up meat.

                                                        Hey Curbside. We use a sweet, creamy southern style here. Customers seem to like it. When I get the new cart with more space I will offer a mustard slaw as well.

                                                            I'm from Alabama and grew up eating slaw dogs. In North 'Bama we like them with sweet and tangy vinegar slaw or with poolroom slaw, which is a spicier vinegar slaw with mustard added. About 10 years ago I had a slaw dog with chili for the first time--loved it!
