As many FDB readers know, I love a good hotdog ( or a burger
Anyway, my parts warehouse is in Fat city so I decided to stop in at this Fat City Franks place.
First off they have a full bar, and some decent beers on tap. I went for a Canebreak.
The hot dog choices are between $6-8 dollars. So it is no cheaper than Dat Dog. They don't have the selection of sausages or dogs either.
But like Diva Dog (which I seem to be the only one here to like) they have specialty dogs.
The day I went there was a thread on here about Philly Cheesesteaks so I went with the Cheesesteak Dog.
The bread had a good flavor and was very very similar to Dat Dogs, almost a copy.
The dog itself had a nice bite to it. It was flavorful. I would have preferred the cheese to be a little melted, maybe a couple of seconds under a salamander. Also it needed spice, it was more sweet than anything.

All in all not bad, I would like to try the Chicago dog as that is one of my favorites, and I'm sure it's better than Wienerschnitzel which is where I first had such a dog. (also why does Wienerschnitzel, not serve fried veal cutlets? isn't the name misleading? lol)
All in all worth a fat city stop. But with Bears and Phil's Grill each on other sides of the district, it's hardly the best spot for a fat guy lunch sandwich.
