Kamp Dog

15 Broad Street, New London, CT - (860) 443-3000
Serving the best hot dogs in southeastern Connecticut, Kamp Dog uses Hummel franks and grilled, New England-style buns for a textural treat. Homemade dynamite sauce (a Rhode Island variation on sloppy joe meat sauce) tops the dogs, burgers, and chicken sandwiches. Breakfast cannot be beat, as their stacked egg sandwiches attest, and the Dippers (battered and deep-fried rolls of bacon, ham & sausage) are crazily delicious. Hand-cut fries round out a truly wonderful menu.

Rolls of sausage, bacon, and ham are battered, deep-fried, and served with maple syrup, hence the name Dippers. They are unbelievably good!

Chili on the Fritos is pretty hot stuff. 'Of course it is,' said chef Ken Hochstetler. 'If it wasn't, it would be Bolognese sauce.'

When you place an order, it is written on the back of a thick paper plate. The upside-down plate goes to chef Ken, who cooks the meal, then flips the plate to hold it.
