Comment Archives: Locations: Food and Drink: Hot Dogs

Re: “The Dog

You'll find this place in an old converted house just south of campus. Despite the meek, unassuming facade, it has lots of atmosphere and character inside. The decor is a bit haphazard, but I liked it. There is also a large outdoor patio that I'm sure plays well with the nearby coeds.

I ordered exactly what I came for: The Barnyard Dog. This bad boy comes with pulled pork, bbq sauce, and coleslaw. Fabulous!

Most places offering a "bbq hotdog" simply drizzle a little sauce and call it good, but not The Dog. I ended up with heaping portions of slaw and pulled pork. The big, plump hotdog was a great support structure for the hefty toppings. The crunchy slaw paired really well with the tender pork, and the sugary sweet sauce tied everything together nicely. On the down side, I couldn't find any smoke, but that's really my only complaint.

Obviously a hotdog pales in comparison to true barbecue (especially if you're a Texan), but this dog was delicious in its own right. I'll definitely be back.

Re: “Hot Diggity Dogs

They serve top quality dogs including polish and vegterian, grilled or steamed on a white or wheat bun (your choice). The kraut on the New York dog is very good and the Chicago dog is the real deal, including the sport peppers, tomato wedge, pickle slice, bright green relish, and cucumber salt. The fries are KILLER; They are perfectly cooked in peanut oil, and more than you can eat are stuffed into the brown paper bag in which they are served. The building is tiny, with a few stools and a small bar along one wall. It's usually crowded so you probably won't want to eat inside, but you can, especially if you are willing to eat standing. Don't worry, there are picnic tables on the covered deck which has roll-up canvas sides to keep the wind and sun at bay, and the food tastes great no matter where you eat it.

Re: “Wild Bill's Beignets & Bikes [Closed]

This guy is as shady as they come. Does not pay any of his employees. He splits the servers and bartenders tips with the cooks, himeslf,and sometimes his wife
He has worked a friend of mine as many as 18 hours a day and did not even want to pay her
$2.13 an hour. He closes when he seems to know when the health department is coming and closes for the entire day to clean. At $5.50 for a btl. Of beer you would think that someone besides him was getting paid. (He splits tipshare with himself and his wife? ??)

Re: “Wild Bill's Beignets & Bikes [Closed]

This place is working people and not paying them. They are operating the roof top deck with any running water, no way for employees to wash their hands. The food is completely overpriced... 15 bucks for a chicken finger basket. This place sucks. DO NOT EVER GO HERE

Re: “Flying Saucer Draught Emporium

The Saucer is one of the best places to enjoy microbrews in a town with increasing choices. Service can be uneven and the food is unexceptional, but the staff trains regularly on the vast array of beer selections and the bartenders in particular are knowledgeable. If you are over twenty five you might prefer the vibe at happy hour and during weekend days as the place can become inundated with Vandy students on late evenings. Special events include beer tastings, a trivia night and live music from consistently average retro and alternative bands.

Re: “Flying Saucer Draught Emporium

The saucer offers a very knowledgeable staff. They can tell you what beer you will probably like, even if you aren't much of a beer drinker. It is very relaxed and has lots of comfortable seating. The beer garden is a great place to hang out, especially when the garage doors are open.

Re: “Gabby's Burgers & Fries

I have been to Gabbys several times over the past couple of months and have enjoyed it every time! The burgers are great. Very friendly staff, limited seating and hours so get there at lunch time... Wasabi mayo, sweet potato fries and delicious desert bars... You cannot go wrong here..
