Oh yes... I do remember Carroll's hamburgers [weren't those like .15 cents?]. Perhaps I'm putting my age stamp here?

Someone once told me as I was getting a hot dog from the stand, that one could tell where they were from by what they requested on their hot dogs - as far as condiments go.

"No one, I mean no one... puts catsup on their hot dog" [excerpt from Clint Eastwood movie, 'Sudden Impact"]. I do mustard, relish and a little bit of onion. Not against kraut but don't really put it on mine. Maybe rare occurrence. Usually just do the kraut on New Year's Day.
Anyone read latest that condiments may make you fat? I just saw that email on one of those health forums. Kraut in massive amounts usually do a number on my digestive system so perhaps that's why I don't eat as much of it.

I don't search it out for garnish on dogs either but we do cook knockwurst and such in it. Know what you mean about the digestive system but since living the low carb lifestyle it doesn't bother me nearly as much. Last night had it in a green bean casserole, outstanding!

Condiments can be fattening, you need to read the labels. You can eat all you like of regular mustard, dill relish, red hot sauce, (onions, peppers if not soaked in oil). Ketchup and some of those fancy mustards are loaded with sugar.

I liked all the Dirty Harry movies.

maybe because lots of places up here do the "hot sauce" on the dogs

Ewww, Rotten Chester.
Can you say "kosher" ?

Most condiments are pretty bad for you, but sauerkraut is VERY healthy. It can definitely upset your stomach if you're not used to it, though.

I've been all over the country and I like the different toppings from place to place because it's cool to see our differences but a hot dog with mustard and kraut is like apple pie.....and to get a strange look for the request is what surprised me.

I still like putting catsup on my hot dogs, hamburgers, french fries,...
Sometimes tho I'll opt for barbeque sauce on the burgers.
When you ask for toppings does the 1st item you mention mean that's what you want the most of on your hot dog or hamburger?
It's better to put the items you want on your hot dog or hamburger yourself because then you have the option of quantity for each but sometimes you have to rely on the person on the other side of the cart or counter. Occasionally have gone to the cart stands where the person on the other end is not from the U.S. and often end up w/ more of one condiment than the other.
What to do about those stale buns

Default Is Nick Tahou's still downtown?

Been away for awhile- can you still get a "Garbage Platter" at Nick Tahou's downtown, and is the carousel still open at Charlotte?
