Stuggy’s Old Fashioned – best hot dogs in the city? (!)

Even if you’re a 9th level Vegan, chances are pretty high that at some point in time in your life, you’ll develop a deep-seated, insatiable craving for mankind’s greatest achievement (aside from nachos), the hot dog. And if, when such a craving strikes, you go anywhere other that Stuggy’s (809 South Broadway) in Fells Point, you’re wasting your time and/or money. Stuggy’s menu boasts nine specialty dogs and sausages along with your standard quarter pound classics (all made to your customized liking, natch), including the Chi-town Dog (pictured, $5.99) heaped with corn relish, peppers, onions, tomato and a pickle spear. I came this close to ordering The Cuban ($7.09), which features pulled pork, swiss, pickle and mustard all piled on top of a 1/4 pound dog, but whatever. Either way, rest assured whatever dog you choose you’ll walk (or stumble, if you’re shithammered) away satisfied.

And as a bonus, the guy running the joint gave me a free drink for announcing that Saliva’s “Click Click Boom” really sucks, since it was on the radio at the time. Nice!

  1. Been there.  The food availability does not match the menu – so don’t bring your non-beef and non-pork-eating friends.  The fried stuff was greasy and tasteless.  The dogs were ok, but nothing to write home about.  The service was tolerable, but barely.  2.5 stars – 1 for getting a lot of press lately, and 1.5 for their food/service.   

    1. Good point about the availability, at time of service they were out of a few key ingredients like sauerkraut – which if you’re going to do hot dogs and sausages, you’d better have on hand at all times. Agree to disagree about the dog’s flavor, it was hellatasty
