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

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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!
