A couple of months ago, gourmet magazine put out a little ditty on a hot dog shack in PDX..i must have tossed the magazine and i"m hoping someone knows what I'm talking about...any takers?

    Threw out your Gourmet? Blasphemy! I just moved to PDX and was pleased to see the brief on Otto's. Haven't tried it myself yet, but it sounds like a worthwhile trek. It's at 4138 SE Woodstock.

        Ah, yeah, that's right, the Sterns, of Roadfood fame gave them that honor. I like Otto's, though I prefer to just buy sausages there and eat them at home, though since they're so far away I usually get mine at German Sausage, German Bakery, or Gartner's. Yeah, it's kind of a funky setup there with the outdoor grill. Is it only at lunch? I'd be happier if their buns and accompaniments were better quality.

        Don't know what Gourmet said, but the best two, imo, are Zach's Shack and Superdog. Zach's Shack is open late, too.
