Coleslaw on a Hotdog!!! Thu, 10/23/08 8:33 AM (permalink)
When I used to spend summers in the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina, I noticed when I ordered a hot dog in so many places, it came with coleslaw("slaw") on it...the first time I was asked if I wanted it,I thought I had heard "Kraut" and said yes...boy was I surprised...pleasantly so...it's delicious.....I especially enjoyed a dog with the works...they put that slaw right on top of the chili...looked strange but tasted great.....mustard ,onions, chili, then slaw....to this day..almost forty years later,my family loves them...we call them "Burnsville Hotdogs" in honor of the mountain town in Yancey County where I first had that taste treat on a great footlong served at Lil' Smoky's...
Been back to Yancey County twice, and we always enjoy a "Burnsville Hotdog" to celebrate.
I've never seen "slaw" served on a dog up here in Jersey or vacinity....how many of you have ever enjoyed this treat...ever had anything like the "Burnsville Hotdog"? If not give it a try!!!!!!!

    Slaw on a dog is very good. Odd, for me because I am not one who likes slaw on barbecue.

      Slaw on dogs is also very popular in West Virginia. Personally, I love them! This is from the late, great Hocutt's of Moundsville, WV.


      I believe I have also had them in Alabama.

        Slawdogs are very common in East Tennessee. I was ordering them 40 years ago and they are still very prevalent. Generally creamy sweet slaw is used around Knoxville.

          I have not had slaw on a dog, but in Colorado, I was pleasantly surprised with slaw and chili on a burger. It was outstanding! I bet it would be good on a chili dog too!

            If you want to try a place where you can make a slaw dog, You may want to try Broadway Bar and Grill in Point Pleasant, NJ. They are near the inlet across the street from the charter boats. They serve the hot dog with or without fries and they always have cole slaw. There slaw is creamy. This is as close as I've gotten to a slaw dog.

                I was served a hot dog covered with slaw once in Charleston, West Virginia. I'd never heard of such a thing before. I tried it. Didn't care for it. Reminded me of the time I ordered a hamburger in Amarillo, Texas and the thing came covered with lettuce, tomato and onion. I said I hadn't ordered any lettuce, tomato or onion and the guy said that's the only way they made a hamburger. I was just 17 and where I grew up if you wanted a garden on a hamburger you had to order a "Deluxe," and it cost extra. I still don't eat burgers with gardens.

                  We just had a Hot Dog joint open right in the city I live in (Xenia Ohio) about a month ago Called Vergie's Home of the West Virginia Slaw Dog. I am waiting until they get settled in before I do a formal review. They serve a steamed Nathans Dog with Homemade Chili and Slaw. Not a bad combination and he says it is his biggest seller so far...Russ

                    Rosco's big dog in Hartford, CT serves homemade chili and homemade slaw on a dog as well.

                      The only steamed hot dog I ever liked was Lum's steamed in beer hot dog.

                          Another option is Crifdog in NYCity...



                          The top one is a "BLT", which is a Bacon Wrapped Dog with Lettuce, Tomato & Mayo, bottom is a "Spicy Redneck", which is a house dog, Bacon Wrapped, with Chili, Cole Slaw, and Jalapenos.

                          They'll also just do chili and slaw if you want.

                                I love a good slaw dog. You can't find any out here so I have to make them at home. I make the slaw with Maui onion dressing and add lots of red onions to the mix. 2 Nathan's doggies cooked on the grill with slaw & plenty of whole grain mustard and I'm good to go.

                                    Lenny's sandwich shops have grilled footlongs. I would think slaw would be an accepted condiment.

                                      I don't run into them very often.

                                      I'd enjoy trying on at a place that calls it a specialty, where they have honed the specialty.

                                              Long Dogger's in Daytona Beach does. Scroll down to the hot dog menu.

                                                  In Raleigh, I had a slaw dog at a stand named Snoopys.As I recall it was slaw, raw onions and mustard.Pretty good, and different from what we have here in Wisconsin, but it isnt anything I would seek out.Give me a good Chicago style dog anyday...

                                                    A hot dog without slaw? Except for a Chicago style dog, such a thing is as abominable a notion as a Memphis BBQ without it!

                                                      A slaw dog is about the only variation in which I just can't put on a little ketchup. The slaw demands the stage alone.

                                                        Dairy Queen use to serve the "Suicide Dog". It was a foot long with onions, relish, chill and slaw. Humm, those were good even though the wiener wasn't the best.

                                                          My friend Barry turned me on to cole slaw on a bow wow way back when, I'd never heard of it before, always went with kraut or onions but I tried it and I've been a fan ever since.

                                                            Love slaw dogs...especially with some Texas Pete's on top.
