P B's Takeout in Ardmore Village (Winston-Salem)

After a drive-through Old Salem on this rainy day, my host, Bill, took me to P B's Takeout in his pick-up truck.

I was curious about the 100.5 sanitation rating, as I'd not seen a scale that went higher than 100 before. Asking Bill how it was possible to score that high, he quipped that they take AP classes at PB's. :-)

While we waited, I eyed, the display of B&G pies and D-lish. Bill said that apple was the flavor to get, none here, so none for me this stop.

He ordered a hot dog for us to share, "all the way", which I presume means with everything (chili, slaw, mustard). Here's our $2 dog.

Slaw's chopped relatively fine and has a lot of onion. Not loaded with toppings, and I liked the balance of elements in the dog sandwich. What really made it for me was the perfectly sized, grilled, toasty buttery bun. I had to wipe an oil slick off my fingers with a napkin. A fine dog.

  1. P B's Takeout serves absolutely one of the area's best Southern chili dogs. Better than Pulliam's, despite what Rachel Ray says.

      My hosts feels the same way, saying the hot dog itself is better quality and gives P B's a leg up. But he thought I'd enjoy the "ambiance" at Pulliam's. PB's dog looked less overstuffed than the photos of Pulliam's in Serious Eats.
