Dew Drop Inn

1808 Old Shell Rd., Mobile, AL - (251) 473-7872

Being a couple of Parrotheads, we just had to go try the cheeseburger, and I have to say that I was disappointed with it. After having a cheeseburger in paradise at Margaritaville this one was below par. Now the hot dogs are something totally different - we were in Mobile for two weeks and we made four more trips to the Inn just for the hot dogs. They spoiled me for hot dogs anywhere else and I can’t wait until we get back to the area for more. The onion rings were probably in the top three or four on my list of great rings I’ve had around the country.

Unless specified otherwise, your hot dogs will come garnished with ketchup, mustard, pickle, sauerkraut and chili.  These dogs are much beloved in Mobile!

The upside down dog has the bright red wienie nestled atop the condiments.

The crunchy exterior and soft onion interior make an unbeatable combination.  My cousin proclaimed these big, thick onion rings some of the best he has ever had.
