Yes, hot dogs are an important part of the summer season, and most of us love them. They are a fun food that you can get really creative with. And there are loads of hot dog stands and restaurants that have done just that. In my quest for the ultimate hot dog I visited The Stand this week.
The Stand is a hot dog stand that serves a variety of dogs. It also sells ice cream. All of the items they sell are well yummy is the only word I can use to describe them. I mean coney dogs and ice cream are a great combo right? The Stand is located in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and it’s been around for a few years. It’s open seasonally, so you have to get your dogs while the weather is warm.
Like I said they specialize in coney dogs. And they have a good selection of their own creations. When I visited The Stand, I got a coney dog along with a Texas Coney Dog. The coney dog had the normal coney sauce that we all love. But the Texas Coney Dog was awesome. It had bbq sauce along with bacon bits. And they added hot sauce. It was fabulous.
The Stand is primarily a drive thru stand, but you can sit outside at picnic tables. And they do have car shows at the location. So if you’re a fan of classic cars this is a great place to go on those nights.
The dogs are great, and it’s just a fun place to visit. But do they have the ultimate hot dog? Only time will tell with that one.
