New Orleans hot dogs

As you can see from the Urban Spoon page about New Orleans hot dogs, Bud's Broiler scores high on the list.  I think of this as a hamburger joint rather than hot dog heaven.  Other entries are in Metarie, outside proper city limits.

Lucky Dogs scores a poor seventh place showing.  This isn't remarkable considering their reputation on the street.  Still, even if it is food fit only for drunks who have no sense left in their heads, I may want to revisit the monopolistic competition to see what they offer exactly beyond convenience and flashy carts.  To me, a hot dog is all about the cooking and the condiments.  Once you've got that down, the rest is gravy.

I'll be checking out Bud's Broiler soon.  There's a picturesque shop by Delgado Community College on City Park Avenue.  It didn't too seem busy when I passed by today around noon, but this is the summer semester.   I'm not much of a hamburger man myself, but I'm married to a woman from Hamburg.  I wonder what that really makes me?

Catching up on blog reading and stopped by.

That's a great line. And so true in so many ways.

Thanks Michelle. I try to sprinkle some gold in the dross sometimes.
