Yellow Jackets Hot Dogs – Ellenwood, GA

In the continuing search for the elusive “genuine” yellow jacket hot dog, I’m generally willing to drive all over the place.  Today’s adventure, as we started towards Savannah, took us through Ellenwood in Henry County. And it took us to another place that came from the google search that stemmed from the discussion that led […]

Olympic Flame – Atlanta, GA

I’m going to guess that fifty or more times, in the past six years, I’ve driven by the Olympic Flame.  And on nearly every one of those occasions, it has been closed.  But I had been intrigued by the sign – “You need to eat.  We need the money.”  Then a month or so ago, […]

Nu-Way Weiner Stand – Macon, GA

On multiple previous occasions, I had tried to go to Nu-Way Weiner Stand and failed.  It seems that we always were driving through Macon either before lunch or on a Sunday, neither being times that worked (they’re open 6:00 am – 7:00 pm weekdays and 7:00 am – 6:00 pm on Saturday).  Over a holiday […]

Brandi’s World Famous Hot Dogs – Marietta, GA

Many times over the last several years, I’ve driven by Brandi’s World Famous Hot Dogs, but I’ve never been by when the “Open” sign was in the windiw.  They’re open 10:00 – 3:00, Monday – Friday, and my schedule never seemed to mesh with their hours.  Nearly in downtown Marietta (they’re just down the street […]

Hot Dog Alley – St. Simon’s Island, GA

We were staying down on St. Simons Island for a couple of days on business.  As I headed out to an afternoon meeting late one day, I saw Hot Dog Alley.  It was closed for the day, but I made a note to swing back by at some point over the next couple of days. […]

Fred’s Bar-B-Q House – Austell, GA

Over the course of my life, I’ve eaten at the Bar-B-Q House dozens of time, and I honestly don’t think I’ve ever eaten their barbecue (this visit was in February, 2012).  When I was kid, my dad took me to the Bar-B-Q House for “yellow jacket” hot dogs.  For barbecue, we always went to Wallace’s, […]

Willie’s Weenie Wagon – Brunswick, GA

On the same trip where I visited T-Ray’s Burger Station on the way to a meeting, I stopped for a bite on the way home at Willie’s Wee-Nee Wagon. I’ve been going to Brunswick once every three months for a couple of years and whenever I asked about some place “non-chain” to eat, they always […]
