Top Five Hotdogs

Aug 28, 2015

I love all things “food,” and almost everyone loves a good hotdog, so I embarked on a search for the five best hotdogs in the region. I realized early in my research that I was going to have to limit the search to Wilmington proper for now, as Carolina Beach, Burgaw, Rocky Point, and points beyond the city limits all have too many hotdog vendors for me to cover in one blog, but I will consider others in the future. I decided to stick to places that specialize mostly in hotdogs, and I tried to focus on eating local and stayed away from chain restaurants.
