Dairy Queen Hot Dogs Fri, 02/20/04 2:07 PM (permalink)
Has anyone had their hotdogs? I especially like their chili and cheese footlong. I was surprised at how good they are. Does anyone know who makes the hotdogs they sell? Not a bad dog for fast food.

    I can't recall every ordering a hot dog at the hundreds of times I have eaten at the Dairy Queen. I can't get past the tacos - my favorite, or the occasional Hungerbuster or Dude.

    My first job in high school was at the Dairy Queen, and I cannot remember what kind of chili they used.

    I do remember that there was a man that would come through the drive up and order a chili sundae. Ice cream with chili on top.

      I had one of their chili and cheese footlongs last week. I didn't care for it. The hotdog was mushy.

        I've found that the coney dogs at Dairy Queen can vary quite a bit from place to place. Where I grew up and where my parents still live, Bloomington, IN, the local Dairy Queen has a coney where the sauce is basically just like sloppy joe filling. It is in no way chili. These are actually my favorite coneys in the world and I get one every time I visit them. The ones, here in Ohio have more of a chili sauce. And even some of the ones here are slightly different as I have been to some places that use slices of american cheese and some the use a shredded cheddar. This is probably because most of the places are individually owned and operated. They must give the owners a lot of freedom to choose how they run things.

        And actually the same thing is true with the ice cream. In Indiana (or at least in Bloomington), they do not have the chocolate soft serve like we do here.

          I used to always like a chili cheese footlong after Sunday night's bowling and beer. Was it due to the beer ya think?? Actually I really did like them. Beats the hell outta Checkers. We no longer have Dairy Queen's. The closest one to me is off I-95 in Bunnell and it looked to be struggling a couple of weeks ago.

                We also had a Dairy Queen where my Grandfather lived in Rainelle W.Va. It was always a treat to go there when we were visiting. Cole slaw was a condiment as well but I always skipped it. Same buns.

                  Howard8,
                  I have not tried a hot dog from Dairy Queen. But, as hatteras04 stated, they are different according to location. The one closest to me serves dirty water Sabrett. Another location close by serves Thumann's that are grilled. The same goes for Stewart's Root Beer in N.J. Different dogs and different methods of cooking depending on the location.

                    Never had a DQ doggie, but I do have a soft spot in my heart for a Sonic's footlong with the works including slaw, cheese, & chili. Don't forget the cheese tots on the side and a Route 44 Coke.

                      There's a DQ in New Smyrna Beach, FL that has resisted the chain's attempts to make them expand into a full size DQ and as a result they continue to serve only ice cream and hot dogs. Their hot dogs are different from other DQ's - they are Kahn's and I don't know where they get their buns but their trick is to steam them up together a bit when ordered and they are awesome. NSB is about 12 miles south of Daytona and the DQ is on U.S. 1. Prepare to stand in line when visiting.

                              I'm with you on this one! I'll take a Sonic coney over our local "Coney Island" dog any day!

                                There are still a couple of DQs on this side of the continent. In the High Desert area we have one of those half DQ and half Orange Julius stands in the mall. Their dogs are horrible, they leave them on one of those rotisseries (like you find in a 711) all day and the things turn to rubber. Not at all worth the $4 price tag.

                                  I used to eat the DQ dogs at a location in Gray, Tn that I don't think is there anymore. I'd get them on my lunch break and hope there wouldn't be too many trips to the bathroom afterwords. I actuall went to a dairy Queen in London, Ky where they ran out of icecream! All they had left were the Dilly Bars! This is pathetic but true!

                                    Around here, the dogs at the "Grill and Chill" DQ's are a lot bigger, and better, than the other DQ's. And their coney sauce is at least decent. Really, it is the only edible coney dog in the area. Not much "dog selection" in town here. Odd that we are this close to chicago, and there isn't even a chicago style stand around here either.

                                    There is an old A&W about 40 minutes to the north that is decent, though not great, as well. The few other places around here that sell chilli or coney dogs are either hot dogs with sloppy joe sauce, or they have "midwestern style" chilli on them, kidney beans and all.

                                      I used to Manage a Dairy Queen up till a year ago. We actually microwaved our dogs. Not to surpising, we sold about 2 a week.

                                        I'm not familiar with any hot dog stands in your area, but there's an restaurant in Beloit, WI called the Gun Club. It's an old fashioned supper club that serves excellent food. www.wtvo.com/Global/story.asp?S=1549380&OreZJ5Ow

                                          I love Dairy Queen footlong coney dogs...they are really good, but i am not too sure what kind of dog or sauce they use, but i do know and agree w/ u, that they are very delicious..i dont know if they vary city to city, but in my hometown of Urbana, Ohio, they are excellent!! and now i reside in Ironton, Ohio, and the dogs here at the Dairy Queen taste just as good as Urbana, so i am not too sure...have a good one!!

                                            I can remember a very long time ago having a hot dog at a DQ. I was very young at the time; but if memory serves me correctly, it wasn't a foot long; but a regular size hot dog that I had. I can remember it being split down the middle and it was placed in a New England Style Hot Dog Bun. The bun is what surprised me; because I had not seen one before. It was a DQ that had a BRAZIER kitchen...

                                              I find DQ hotdogs lacking in flavor and limp.

                                                I have found DQ dogs to vary quite a bit. I prefer the dogs at the "Grill and Chill" DQ's, and don't care for them much at the original style DQ's. The chilli sauce/ coney sauce used by DQ Grill and Chill is about as it gets around here (Northern Ill). Seems like around here, I'll order a "chilli dog", and end up with a bowl of chilli (with beans) on a hot dog.

                                                Hard to find a good dog around here. We're just out of the reach of Chicago and the burbs, so there are no good Chicago style places in town. I was originally born near Detroit, MI, and thus appreciate a good eastern style dog as well. Which, unfortunately, I have to go out east for.

Where I grew up [Bloomington, IN], the local Dairy Queen has a coney where the sauce is basically just like sloppy joe filling. It is in no way chili. These are actually my favorite coneys in the world and I get one every time I visit them. The ones, here in Ohio have more of a chili sauce. And even some of the ones here are slightly different as I have been to some places that use slices of american cheese and some the use a shredded cheddar. This is probably because most of the places are individually owned and operated. They must give the owners a lot of freedom to choose how they run things.


                                                  The Dairy Queen nearest me in Alpharetta GA uses the shredded cheddar and the chili sauce. Their Ultimate Cheeseburger (two patties, bacon, lettuce, tomato and pickles and special sauce) blows away any other fast food joint,including Burger King's Angus burgers or Hardee's Thickburgers. This location seems to be staffed entirely by Indians.
                                                  If they would start offering seikh kabob dogs and tandoori chicken sandwiches, I'd probably eat there more often.

                                                    Dairy Queen hot dogs vary by location. When I lived in Texas, they used those red-dyed dogs which you can only find here in Southern California at grocery stores that get their supplies directly from places in the Midwest and South. You get chicken dogs, laced with pork, here.

                                                      Actually, the best hot dog stand in Southern California is Pink's on La Brea Avenue, just north of Melrose Avenue in Hollywood. You do see many movie and television stars there but the main attraction is the dogs, many of which are named for celebrities. They use the dogs with skin casings. The buns are fresh. The chili for the chili dogs is just right. And the prices are cheap (no sales tax, either). They have a sign on top of the restaurant that says they use Hoffy hot dogs but if you buy Hoffy hot dogs at the grocery store, you won't get the kind with skin casings (might as well get something else!) The only bad thing about Pink's is that you might have to wait an hour in line to get your wiener. But they are open until after the bars are closed!

                                                          Used to love DQ foot longs with chili on trips to lake in Ohio as a kid. But on trips to South, we wouldn't eat any hot dogs because for some reason they used to dye all hot dogs BRIGHT red in South which freaked us out for some reason. This is no longer common practice down here, but they still sell bright red hot dogs in grocery stores here for traditionalists. Any long-term Southerners know the origin of the red dye practice?

                                                            don't particularly care for much of DQ food-- other than their chicken strips.. they are awesome and i am not sure if it's the chicken or the gravy they give you to dip it on - or the toast that goes with it.. but the chicken strips rock.. other than that-- i don't care for DQ food.. especially their fries.. they always taste undercooked-- no matter what DQ i go to = they are all about the same.. i do, however, enjoy their vanilla cones dipped in chocolate or their french vanilla moooo lattes.. hmmmm those are good..........
