When we moved to Norfolk last year, we knew about some of the local food specialties.  What has surprised me is the number of independent hot dog places around.  What are your favorites?

Only three thus far:

1) Doug's was pretty good.  Was there late in the day, will have to try it again around lunchtime.

2) Perfectly Frank (the one by ODU).  It's fine but the best I've been to.

3) Dog and Burger Grille in Ghent.  The food and atmosphere are very good.  Not sure it would get all the buzz it does if it wasn't located in Ghent.

I need to try some more places around the area...

Had lunch today at Tony Jr.'s hot dog stand, surrounded by a chain link fence, on Lafayette.  Excellent chili dog.  Across the street from the "Original" Tony's.  Apparently, from what locals tell me, there was a family fight when the original Tony died over who was going to get his business.  The son lost out, and opened his own stand across the street.  Locals claim Tony Jr'.s hot dog today is closer to the original served by his Dad than the one the "Original" Tony's serves.  I would definitely go back for another one.

I've got pictures to upload if someone can give me pointers on how to upload them!
