Mr. Mac's Canteen

838 Main St., Monroe, CT - (203) 459-9595
Place your order for a dog, a cheese dog, or a chili dog, and as soon as it is pulled up out of the hot oil and rolled around on the grill to get a crisp crust, it is bunned and placed in a cradle for the final dressing with your choice of mustard, relish, onions, bacon bits, or sauerkraut. Chili topping is ferociously hot, but addictive.

The works: mustard, relish, onions, bacon, and sauerkraut. Buried underneath this wicked-good quintet is a firm, natural-casing hot dog. All in a grill-toasted bun, of course.

Four-alarm chili sauce -- no meat, no beans -- makes this snapping-firm hot dog one of the region's best.

Located in a strip mall by the side of Route 25, Mr. Mac's vividly spiced food makes up for the bland location.

As a research project, I ordered two hot dogs with no chili on top -- but could not, of course, neglect mustard and relish. Note the toasty inside of the bun: crisped alongside hot dogs on the kitchen's hot grill.

The last bite and very end of my Mr. Mac's hot dog, and my favorite part, where the natural casing twists together and adds a bit of chew to the muscular dog it envelops.
