Hot Dog Joints in Canada

I got an email to my hot dog newsletter from Canada.
I'll add a hot dog page for Canada if there is interest.
Anyone know of HDJs in Canada

    I'm French Canadian, so mostly familiar w/ HD stands in Quebec, the poutine province.  IMO, the best HD joint is "Chez Bébé", located in Jonquiere. They serve the HD all dressed w/ french fries or poutine stuffed inside the HD.  Delicious!!!  Also in the same region, there is "Le Pavillon du Hot Dog", "Chez Mamy", Le Roi des Patates.

    There are a few famous hd chains throughout the province such as Valentine, La Belle Province, Lafleur, The Montreal Pool room, etc...

    There are very few hd carts in QC, mostly due to the  climate and they are not allowed at all in Montreal where most of the population reside. That's why there are many chains of stands where they serve your basic HD menu, burgers, french fries, poutine of course, and ice cream.

    I hope this helps although I'm a little late for your CDN HD party. :)

    John,

    I'm not too familiar with Canadian hot dogs, but they are big on all sorts of what I consider weird toppings that to me detract from the actual frankfurter. But many people, even in N.J. go for loaded dogs. One very popular dog that is sold around the Toronto area is Shopsy's. A lot of carts and trucks serve this dog. I've never had it but it is all beef, and depending on whose opinion you listen to, it's either a quality beef dog or a bland one. But it is popular.

    Again, I can't speak for the rest of Canada, but I wouldn't call the topics weird in QC.  Basically, the vendor will ask if you want it grilled or steamed, with onions, mustard,  relish and cabbage.  The french fries inside the bun is strictly a regional thing.  The poutine might be considered a bit strange, but that's a french fries.

    I'm not a vendor yet (working on it), but as a consumer, I think the toppings of the 'Chicago Style' is pretty weird. (No offense intended)  

    Whatever sells will be just fine by me. :)

    Sorry all for taking so long to respond.

    I'm on vacation with my girl friend Karen. I told her no hot dogs, just lighthouses and whatever she wants.

    I got to MA tuesday evening and right now I've only had three hot dogs at three different joints.

    I won't have pictures till I get home. I'll post more tonight.

    wee-z, I'd like to hear more about hot dogs in Canada. I'll contact you after my vacation.

    Thanks Joe
