Best southern style hot dogs in Durham. I simply don't eat hotdogs anywhere else because they are all disappointments after a Dog House dog. I recommend the Hound Dog, french fried and the must-have sweet tea.

This local chain has 8 locations in the area, mostly in Durham, and has been around for nearly 40 years, so it must be doing something right. They use a decent quality wiener (not all beef), and their thick (read meaty) chili is made in house, but not necessarily at each location. It has good flavor and is ideal for the classic Southern chili dog.

They have a variety of doggie names for the chosen toppings for the dog, like Collie, Boxer, etc. Most are very good, but the mustard, chili, onion/slaw combination is best for me. The only problem I've ever encountered is that they may carry the onions over from the previous day, and those can be bitter.

They have baked beans, brunswick stew, and even BBQ, but the dogs are the best of breed - I'd stick with them. I'd pass on the fries, they're the ridged, formed into rectangles kind.

This is a takeout only place - some have some limited outside seating
