Finally got to Mad Dogs-It's the real thing!

Where are you eating and what do you think? What's opening, closing, succeeding, failing?

If you had called mad dog you probably wouldn't have learned much. I asked the guy about their cheese and all he was really able to tell me was that it comes from their supplier and isn't locally purchased.

This thread reminds me of one of the many episodes on PBS that I love. Has anyone else enjoyed A Hot Dog Program?

I didn't just enjoy it - I lived it!
Seriously, me and a pal spent two summers traveling around the eastern half of the country sampling as many dogs as we could, hitting most of the ones from the show along the way.

The wein...er, winners: Super Duper Weenie Dog (now in a real brick-and-mortar location, but still in the lunch wagon featured on the show when we visited) and Rutt's Hut (The Rippers truly are one of the tastiest things I've ever eaten.)

I stopped by there for a dog yesterday and they have remodeled the place. There is now sitting room for about a dozen people. And they serve fries now! But they are baked, not deep fried. Should they be called bakeds? They were decent... and I was kind of glad they were baked, since I was feeling guilty for ordering them.

They also deliver now, apparently.

They have pretty good fries....Finally. Does anyone in town do a seasoned fry? I went to a place in Atlanta that just sold just fries with diffrent seasonings and dips. It was fantastic! Somebody should do that here.

For all intents and purposes:

jus = gravy

au jus = with gravy

au jus /= gravy

Class dismissed.


Sorry to re-derail a thread that has somehow found its way into a frank discussion about dick-cheese, but in French nouns are either masculine or feminine, so it would not actually be "jus", but "le jus" ("au" being a contraction of "à" and "le").

Thus the "for all intents and purposes" line. I never claimed it was true French. It's placeholder French, with no sense of grammar or relationship between words.

I see. Others are not above correction, but you are. Noted.

Aha, but surely you will agree that your statement is not actually valid for all intents and purposes? If your intent or purpose is to speak proper French, it doesn't work! Clearly I have defeated you quite soundly.
