Corn Dogs

This is a strange request, but a friend of mine has been craving corn dogs lately. I almost feel like corn dogs are a regional food because I can't remember ever seeing corn dogs anywhere in NY except Nathan's. Anyway, any suggestions on places to get some good ol' corn dogs (excluding the grocery store freezer) would be much appreciated!

  1. Damn-you stumped me. Nathan's has mini ones. I think I read that Virgil's BBQ does them too. But once Spring arrives, any street fair in Manhattan has corn dogs. Doubt they're as good as the Dallas State Fair where I believe they were invented (and which I'd love to try one day).

    1. i have a possible alternative for you...

      sure, it looks kinda weird on the box and sounds a bit strange, but they're DELICIOUS. and also something that you can easily make in your own kitchen.

      1. I think Crif Dogs has corn.

        1. Waterfront Ale House has had mini corn dogs as appetizers two of the last three times I was there. I had them both times. They were really good.

            I never saw them on the Brooklyn Waterfront Ale House menu but thanks for the heads-up. The only place I know that has them is the Cowgirl Hall of Fame.

          2. Crif Dogs has them. and you can get it vegetarian too. They come out piping hot. I've burned my tongue more than once.
