Terrible hot dog at Chicory (Degraw St.)

I was excited to see that Chicory in Cobble Hill is offering a variety of decadent hot dogs, but my excitement turned quickly to remorse with the first bite. I ordered the "Martha," which comes with mashed potatoes and bacon on top.
The problem is the dog itself. The blandest dog ever. Dirty water dogs from Times Square are heavenly by comparison. The Chicory dog was just pale pink meat with no flavor, no spices, no soul. And the unseasoned, bland potatoes were a terrible idea with such a wimpy dog.
Whatever else Chicory may do well -- and I don't know, because I had never eaten their food before tonight -- stay AWAY from the hot dogs!
I can't comment on the hot dog, but I have ordered from there once and once was enough for me. The only thing I specifically remember was the baked beans, which were truly awful. I saved them just to make my boyfriend try them when he got home because I didn't think he would otherwise believe me when I told them how bad they were.
I lived around the corner from Chicory for about a year before moving out of state. To this day, when I return home for a visit, I always stop there for lunch. On my last trip, just last week, I had fried chicken, some tacos, and the brussel sprouts, all of which were excellent. The whaler and the spaetzle are also exemplary, as other people have mentioned. Chicory forever!
I must agree with the majority of the posts, Chicory sounds like a great idea, looks the part, but almost never delivers. It’s just a really average, at best, fast food joint.
