I had my first Spike's Hot Dog at the Junkyard location in Allston, MA. It was a momentous occasion- Spike's makes the best hot dog I've ever had. Which is not to say that others might be better. But Spike's has got it all. Not only do I love Spike's all-beef dog and the warm, freshly baked bun, but I also love their ingredient combinations. Nowhere else can I get the '57 T-Bird:
This was my first Providence Spike's (on Thayer Street) hot dog, and I was a happy puppy. The '57 T-Bird is a fantastic combination of the perfect honey mustard and swiss cheese. Served alongside poodle fries, this inexpensive meal is well worth the calorie-splurge.
Andy had the Chili and Cheddar:
We both always get the same dogs. But they have some great offerings that I really want to try, like the Texas Ranger (BBQ sauce, cheddar, and bacon) or the Reuben Dog (Russian dressing, sauerkraut, and swiss). I'm even tempted to eat enough hot dogs to make it up on their hall-of-fame Polaroid wall. But I'm not really sure that's a good idea...!
