MSP - Hot Dogs - need to buy 10 lbs

Abacus May 30, 2008 09:35 AM

Hi everyone,

I am having a Hot Dog bar soiree in the next two weeks and need some recommendations as to where to purchase the best high quality old fashioned hot dogs!

My bar will include the fixin's for classics like the Chili Dog and Chicago Dog as well as lots of ingredients for things like the Southern Dawg, and Hawaiian dog but it all needs to start with a great hot dog!

I live and work MSP North West side...........

Thank you fellow Chow Hounds!

    Hackenmueller's in Robbinsdale has home made old fashioned hot dogs. They'd easily be able to sell you them in that quantity.

      My favorite are Everret's. Really tasty. And I'm sure you could get a lot of them.

        If it were me, I'd be making a beeline to Kramarczuk's in NE. Homemade, natural cases, great flavor.

          As a non-Minnesotan, I appreciate all the great suggestions!

            Osseo Meats has great dogs, Hackenmueller's are also very good. and both have good deals on large bags of dogs.

              Hackenmuller's or the sausage / pork guy @ the very NW corner of the MPLS farmer's market.

              As a transplant from Chicago, it's Vienna Beef or bust. I wonder if you could drop by Uncle Franky's and buy a case or two from their fridge.

                I'll second Everett's - the coursly ground dogs are lightly smoked and have great texture.

                    I didn't know Thousand Hills made hot dogs - where are these available? Especially in 10 pound quantities?

                    I love their beef.

                    I am going to add my vote to Hackenmueller's for hot dogs. They really are classic campfire/grill/cabin/summertime hot dogs in my opinion. Love the things!
