the fuddruckers hot dog

dollar hot dog fuddruckers

We found ourselves driving up Route 1 today to run a few errands, and as luck would have it, the Saugus Fuddruckers was offering $1 hot dogs. I’m not a hot dog kind of girl — it’s been many years since I’ve consumed one — so I opted for the $2 hamburger. But Tim went for the dog, so we’re counting it for the daily deal.

Does this look like a normal hot dog bun to you? If not, let me tell you a little something about New England. In this part of the country, hot dogs and lobster rolls come in split-top buns with flat sides. Even the plain buns you find at the grocery store are sold this way. The logic is pretty wise — using this kind of bun allows you to butter and toast the sides before adding your meat into the split top. If you aren’t in the area and want to give these New England buns a try, King Arthur Flour sells a pan you can use to make your own.

    That simply cannot be a Fuddrucker’s dog. Sure, you can persaude me that Fuddrucker’s in New Englad uses different buns. But where’s “the stuff”? I mean the vegetable matter: pickles, lettuce, tomators, onions, whatever. That’s the whole point of Fuddrucker’s, isn’t it? To get the cheapest possible meat/bun combination, then essentially build a salad on top of it?

    Wait a minute. I remember: Tim never understood that part. He thought the meat was the point, not the excuse. Fuddrucker’s was one of our favorite family places when we lived in VA – on weeknights, when a kids meal was free with each regular burger. As he approached the end of kids-meal eligibity, Tim would be delighted to take my adult burger while I used his kid-sized one to load up on the veggies. And you say that Tim’s the one who prompted this Fuddrucker’s stop. Maybe the photo is even his dog! Then it would all make sense.
