I'll admit it.  A Chicago dog dragged through the garden is my favorite of them all.

The Home Depots here in Northern Virginia used to have stands that did excellent hot sausage sandwiches.  The names on the stands changed every so often; I remember "Giguinto's", or something like that, being one of them.

I miss them.  Those were good sandwiches, and all the stands have been gone for years.

Usually just plain dirty water dogs and soda Some have grills and Italian sausage Nothing like Chi dogs

in my district, SW FL, those stands were a casualty of COVID. shut down and never reopened.....

The Home Depot I shop at used to have a hot dog stand. They were great and he steamed/boiled them in beer until some Karen complained about it.

hunh, d'nno just how many of their stores out of the main are doing that, but I may just have to check. *taps mic* hay NINEv2, got'chur ears on, c'mon back buddy. like, for serious, if'n any of my local Home Despots were to actually have this, I would farking try one on. y'know, for science, as one does. I almost even want it to happen, but also I hold negative hope.

altho' this looks a little too "dans-le-jardin" for me, and I'm a farkin' vegulon.

oh, and before I forget - years ago, my analyst came up with a particular aphorism on the notion of helping people better understand themselves - "you can't buy eggs at Home Depot"

it... seems to keep inching closer to the literal rather than the purely figurative, lol?

tintar:

Oh yeah I know. I mean, if they're gonna be dirty water dogs they might as well be dirty beer water dogs.

Not like any alcohol is there. Any sausage I do involves beer in some way.   Whether it's marinading or steaming/boiling. It just always makes them superior, IMO.

Yo. I'm not exactly sure when depot dags became a thing. I moved away from the area in '04 and out of state a few years after that. I don't recall the stands back then but maybe I'm wrong. That said...

If'n yous is gonna briefly unvegulate? A Chicago dog is about as good as anything. The dog casing should have a good snap, and the relish should be loaded with so much blue 5 it looks like someone from Fukishima made it for you. Don't forget the celery salt.

Oh christ If Home Depot served that anywhere near me screw the 200 dollars I always spend. I'd be walking out with a new toy and a Chicago dog.
 
2021-06-17 9:04:36 PM  
They used to have these legit Chicago dog stands in some Milwaukee area Home Depots. They were pretty good. I haven't noticed one in ... 5 or more years, I think. No other hot food vendors, either.

So when I'm doing errands or hitting the garage sales on Saturdays I try to wind up around 91st and Burleigh around lunchtime. Mmmmm ... Bunzel's ...

now that its hot dog shack has forever-closed, my store only sells drinks (almost ALL giant energy drinks and a few waters and mexican cokes) and shelf-stable junk snacks (candy, takis and other chips, slim jims and jerky) the kind of empty-calorie processed stuff contractors nosh on mid-job and in their trucks.

one of the saddest things i've recently seen was a clearly drug-using mom (her hair, skin, clothes told her story for her) using a pile of store credits to buy toilet paper and a "meals" worth of that junk food to feed her son and daughter, about 6 and 8 YOs. because she regularly steals merch you see, then returns it sans receipt for the store credits. and then she feeds her kids "groceries" from our junk rack. and that is most likely the only "food" they get other than school free lunch. poor little kids!....we can't pick our parents.

Australians have been enjoying beef sausages on bread at Bunnings hardware stores for 20 years. It's not a hot dog but it's a cheap snack (couple of bucks at most stores, profits usually go to local charities or suburban sports clubs etc) and it's exactly what you need on a cold morning when picking up stuff for the weekend jobs around the house.
