Storyline

Filmmaker Rick Sebak takes his cameras across the country in search of the various hot dogs people enjoy. We see the Super Duper Hot Dog stand and its variety of toppings and sauces. There is an in-depth study of the Chicago-area hot dog stands, in particular the Superdawg. Other hot dog establishments in all of their shapes forms and gimmicks (think the Varsity restaurant's "WhaddyahaveWhaddyahaveWhaddyahave?") Then we come to the New York City area and Gray's Papaya and Nathan's Hot Dogs, where each has their own method of cooking and serving their franks. The annual Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest is also featured. Written by Chase Erwin

an absolutely fun program
10 July 2004 | by (Bethesda, Maryland, USA) – See all my reviews

An absolutely entertaining program about the hot dog, and some of the most popular places in the US to get hot dogs. Written and produced by Rick Sebak for PBS, the same man that brought you An Ice Cream Program and Sandwiches That You Will Like, this is a fun program for all to watch, unless you're a vegetarian.

Watching this program makes me want to someday take a cross country trip to visit all of these establishments, especially my favorite, the place in New Jersey that serves deep-fried hot dogs. Now if you'll excuse me, I think I'll go get a hot dog.

Definitely gets a 10/10.
