I’m going to say that Tubby Dog is my new favorite artery clogging goodness!
The first time I had it was a few years ago (when I ate meat) and it was a pretty good hot dog on steroids overflowing with a ridiculous combination of ingredients.
When my brother came home for a visit I took him there and he was like “Wow! This is 3 meals in one sitting!” He was also sweating quite heavily trying to finish the bacon wrapped, deep fried, hot dog smothered with cheese and a sunny side up egg on top.
I recently rediscovered Tubby Dog after a night of wicked drinking. Not only did it fill the void Wicked Wedge gouged out when it left it’s 17th avenue location but it made me wonder What did I do all this time without this wonderful goodness?!
I’ve always gotten the A-bomb and it has never disappointed me. I love the tang I get from the mustard and ketchup and thoroughly enjoy the cheese sauce covered chips. It’s just perfect. The crumpled chips make this hot dog ridiculously messy to eat which only adds to the fun and the best surprise of all is that the A-bomb still tastes amazing when you haven’t been drinking your week away and needing greasy food to settle your stomach.
My initial thought of the Sumo dog was, “Weird? That does not sound so appealing.” However, I went ahead and tried it anyways. The sumo dog consists of pickled ginger (the kind you get at Japanese restaurants), seaweed, wasabi, and Japanese mayo. I thought there was a little bit too much ginger as it was over powering, the seaweed added a nice texture to the hot dog, and the wasabi gave it a nice kick. I really like the wasabi in the hot dog because it was very different and who thought to put wasabi in hot dogs? It gave it a nice subtle spiciness and the seaweed gave a “coolness” to balance it out. Mmm Mmm mmm, delicious. Every time I go to Tubby Dog, I am always drawn to the Sumo dog!
