The Slaw Dogs IV: "Farewell-To-Winter Dog"

The Slaw Dogs is nothing if not ambitious with its "special" dogs. A couple of times I have been richly rewarded, but an equal number of times I have been underwhelmed. Today's dog most definitely falls into the former category. The Farewell-to-Winter Dog came with sweet potato fries tucked into the bottom,  with cripsy sage, melted Swiss cheese, bacon, grilled onions, and roasted garlic mayo. 

I don't know if I have ever had the combination of bacon and crispy sage on anything. I'm not going to say it's better than garlic and basil, but it's still one of the best combinations I have ever eaten. This dog is in serious competition for the best dog I have had yet from The Slaw Dogs.

OMG The Two Guys know where they are going next. This place seems to be getting rave reviews everywhere we read.

My friend Tim went there a couple hours after he heard what I was eating, and he ordered the dog with a spicy Calabrese sausage (I just went with a foot-long beef frank), which he said was awesome. So keep that in mind when you go.

Looks like I am ordering the Calabrese!

The Calabrese was owner Ray's recommendation. I always defer to him when ordering the special.
The girl at the counter wanted me to have the foot-long. The dog was so good that I will go back and try it with the foot-long as well.

On another note, the Mexican Coke has been upgraded to a half-liter size bottle which is cool because the smaller version was, well, too small.

A beer and wine license posting in the window suggests even greater possibilities for the place. Ray wants to carry craft brews (of course) and feature wines from the Pacific Coast from Washington State to Chile. Interesting concept.
