Andy's Restaurant Scorecard: Hot Dog Week!

Posted: Updated:
MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) - This is tube steak to the extreme. Street meat -- with attitude!

To celebrate National Hot Dog Day (Tuesday, July 23), the Restaurant Scorecard and its fans recommend these five Mid-South hot dog vendors & restaurants:

* THE HOT DOG CART, WHITEHAVEN (Elvis Presley Blvd, North of Shelby Dr.). Jimmy & Sheila Rodgers serve up giant Nathan's beef dogs bathed in sweet peppers and topped with a popping celery salt.

* WISE GUYS CHICAGO PIZZA, HORN LAKE, MS. UrbanSpoon.com rated Wise Guy's Chicago Dog the best hot dog in the Mid-South. "True Vienna beef in a poppy seed bun done with mustard," said Wise Guys owner Bill Rinehart, "and it's got relish, onions, celery salt, pickle spear and tomatoes."

* HOG & HOMINY, EAST MEMPHIS (Twitter @hogandhominy). Charcuterie Chef Aaron Winters (Twitter @burninrivermeat) crafts sausage straight from Mid-South pigs to make the beef & cheddar dog (nicknamed The Cheesy Jumbo), served with mustard in a pretzel bun.

* BLUES CITY HOT DOGS, U OF M AREA (Twitter @bluescitydogs). The best selection of creatively named and seasoned dogs, Blues City Hot Dogs offers ten varieties from the Bourbon Street Dog with Cajun shrimp and creole sauce to the Elvis Dog, a beef dog wrapped in pancake with bacon and maple syrup.

* MEMPHIS DAWGS (Twitter @memphisdawgs). Todd Bourne serves up a Manhattan-style quarter-pound dog with all the trimmings, including homemade sauerkraut and a sweet hot barbecue sauce.
