Comparing Ballpark Hot Dogs

Last night, I went to the Bengals-Ravens game. It was wonderful, even though it was so wet. Good tailgating beforehand, great game by the boys in Orange and Black, nice stop at Tina's after the game.

During halftime, needing a little dinner, I got a hot dog. It was a normal quality dog, nothing special. Of course, that means it still tasted great. But it's nothing compared to the hot dogs at Great American Ballpark.

I've had what I think is the Polish sausage at PBS. It's supposed to be their gourmet option, but it doesn't taste as good as their regular hot dog. It's thicker, it has more texture, but it has less taste. The grilled onions and peppers that come on it just show that the actual dog doesn't have much going for it.

Hot dogs and baseball go together, so it's only fitting that the dogs at Great American are better than the dogs at Paul Brown Stadium. The Big Red Smokey at GABP is the pinnacle of the stadium dogs in town. Great texture, full of smoked flavor, a little kick. And they actually grill it. The PBS dog last night was only boiled.

For me, a hot dog at a game is great, no matter what. So long as they cook it. But the best one between the two professional teams in town is the big red smokey.

GABP has a quote from Humphrey Bogart that sums up my feelings on this subject exactly.

A hot dog at the ball park is better than steak at the Ritz.

What do you think? What's your favorite ballpark dog? Is there a dog at a college stadium that I should try?

Most of us probably have a vague recollection of the first time we found out what hot dogs are made of, and I, like so many others, have pretty much avoided them since then.

Except at ball games. 'Cause that's different.

I noticed that you picked the CityView "best burger" in a previous post. Try the burgers at Oakley Pub. They're my favorite. And the ostrich burger at Habit's Cafe across the street is pretty good, too.

One guy's opinion, but I think the best hotdogs at a Ballpark are at Jacob's field in Cleveland. Nathans at Yankee stadium are a close econd.
