Hot dogs in Bmore

I'm writing an article for B Free Daily about hot dogs in Baltimore. I have to pick 5 or 6 places. I currently have Ann's, Haute Dog Cart, G & A, Weenie World, and Stuggy's. Are there any places that any of you think needs some serious consideration that is not on this list? I'm sure there is a place I haven't heard of. Thanks ahead of time.

G & A Restaurant

Weenie World

  1. Johnny's in Lexington Market needs to be on the list or it's no list at all. Ann's is awesome.

    1. Given that your list so far indicates a rather loose interpretation of "in Baltimore" (within driving distance from Baltimore, maybe?), I'd add Zack's. If you want to stretch the boundaries, there are a couple of places in Hanover, PA specializing in variations on the "Texas Hot Dog" theme. I also recall there being a hot dog truck somewhere in the Glen Burnie area - I think in a church parking lot someplace. Perhaps somebody will recognize that vague description and post more details.

        I went by the Zacks on Old Harford Road Saturday, and think it is gone. The building is up for sale...

      2. Attman's hotdog wrapped in bologna.

          I was just listening to my dad recount eating Attman's hot dogs wrapped in bologna decades ago. I told him I thought I'd read about their corned beef on here, but didn't know anything about the hot dogs. He was almost poetic about it-- he's going to be so excited that they're still selling those.

            They are there and they are wonderful. That place is so good.

        2. It Would still have to be in the state. As long as it's not too far from Baltimore City, then it's fine (we have readers in some of the surrounding counties). Isn't Zacks a chain? I would rather highlight small local businesses. I'll look for that hot dog truck though. There is another truck out by timonium called the wild dog. They move around a bit during the week so I might use them for an article we'll have in the future on mobile food. I still would like to check them out though.

            I'm not aware of Zack's being a chain - even a small local one. Did they open up more locations besides the original? To the best of my recollection, Zack's opened up a few years ago, and is the sort of "small local business" you are looking for. I could be wrong.

          2. How about Polock Johnny's - or do they get vetoed for having more than one location?
