Wait, these are not the usual dogs. Unlike Elizabeth Berkeley, these dogs are dressed... to the tilt with not-your-usual toppings. With so many to choose from, I merely asked what is the best one if I had only one to eat? The confident answer was the Smoked Chicken Apple with Apple Chutney and Arugula. Actually, that sounded kind of good since I was planning on having a burger not too long after. I gotta say, it looked impressive when I picked it up from the counter. With a mound of apple chutney and arugula hiding the chicken frank, this is no ordinary dog. One bite into the darn thing and honestly, all I could taste was apple chutney. Boy, was it sweet. I immediately made a face similar to how I reacted while watching Showgirls. However, it wasn't one of disgust necessarily (for the movie yes). Rather, it was just the shock of so much sweet and tartness. Once I got past the initial shock, eating the hot dog was quite pleasant. The sweetness really went well with the juicy chicken dog. I also liked the bun, it was soft and a bit crispy on the outside. All-in-all, I liked the hot dog. I didn't love it; but at least the T & A in Showdogs is much less in-your-face than Showgirls.
