I made a video while eating a slaw dog the other day. Viddler has several groups which I posted the video in, one being Mealtoday videos and the other being Metoday videos.

Slaw dogs are one of my favorite foods to eat. Check out my Slaw Dog list to see a bunch of places where I have had slaw dogs.

Slaw Dogs

Posted by firstman2006 on May 26, 2006

Slaw Dogs have been on my mind eversince Lizzy took me to Atlanta and had a coleslaw dog at The Varsity Jr restaurant I have looked and eaten them at all opportunities. slaw DogsA slaw dog is a hot dog with coleslaw. The slaw dogs at the varsity have a unique type of coleslaw that as Ed Williams says “sort of blends into the flavor of the wiener” . I will have to try the ones at Nu-Way, since they were declared the best in the nation by the NY Times. Hmm, must be good. Slaw Dogs not only have coleslaw, but can and should have other ingriedients also. I myself like a nice creamy coleslaw, but I start with a steamed New England style top split hot dog roll, then squirt a line of mustard inside, place the hotdog(preferably Kunzler) into roll, cover with chopped Vadalia onions if available, and then cover with creamy coleslaw. yum.

Slaw Dog list:

  1. CeGee’s Blandon, PA 610-944-8977
    • Hot dogs are available as plain or Coney Island. I had a Coney Island with Coleslaw. It was loaded with stuff to include chili, onions and of course coleslaw. Very tasty indeed. They also have pretty darn good milk shakes.
  2. CD’s Place 237 N Reading Ave, Boyertown, PA(610) 367-6734
    • With the encouragement of Lizzy and her family, CD put them on the menu. CD’s slaw dogs have onions, mustard and slaw. You can get two slaw dogs, a soda and chips for under 5 bucks. CD’s is great not only for the Slaw Dogs, but he has cool rock n’ roll stuff all over the place along with some groovy music continuously playing on the radio.
  3. Hatfield Ice Arena Cafe 350 County Line Road, Colmar Pa. 18915, (215)-997-3366
    • When my son had a match there, the owner of the cafe, made one when I asked him.
  4. The Varsity Jr 1085 Lindbergh Drive, Atlanta, GA 30324, (404) 261-8843
    • My first Slaw Dog, truly mouth watering.
  5. JukeBox Cafe, 535 S Reading Ave., Boyertown, PA 19512 (610)-369-7272
    • Very nice cafe- ordered a “Hound Dog” which is their hot dog and they will put anything you want on it, includeing slaw. Slaw dog came open faced, split in half, with both dog and bun grilled. It was quite tasty.
  6. 148A Bloomfield Ave Verona, New Jersey 07044 (973)-433-3074
    • I have never been here, but I read a review of the place and checked out their menu, slaw dogs are on it. Also saw some other interesting dogs…namely a hot dog with cream cheese and onions. Might have to make the 2 hr trip to check em out.
  7. Traub’s Doggies– 251 Main Street ; Emmaus, PA 18049, 610-967-5003, MOn-Sat 11am-8pm. Nice little place…mom and Pop store. Great rolls. Not an official slaw dog, but they do have little individual serving sizes in their cooler. Did I mention I liked their rolls. I talked to one guy, (a retired chiropractor) and he said he liked their dogs, but he thought it was too much roll.
  8. Talarico Sandwich Shop – 425 E. Philadelphia Ave. Boyertown, PA 610-367-2209. Again not an official slaw dog, but they have dogs on the grill and slaw as a side. I can make my own.(update:slaw is a vinegar type, not my favorite for slaw for slaw dogs)
  9. Hermans Drive-In– 50 W. Weiss St. Topton, PA 19562 Phone: 610-682-2128 – Soft serve ice cream along with hot dogs(Kuntzler I believe). They also sell individual servings of creamy style Slaw. I order two with onions and a side of slaw. Oh yea baby.

Got some places you think I should check out, let me know.
