Jerry's Dog - Southern California Fare

Remember the days when you would go to the ball park to watch a game and indulge in a good old fashioned hot dog.  Those days are not gone or forgotten just few and in between.  I finally found a place that reminds of the ball park hot dog.

Jerry’s Dog is a hot dog franchise located throughout California and Dallas, Texas.    There signature dog is an all beef hot dog in natural casing.  It makes that snapping sound when you bite into it.  But for the health concisions they also feature turkey and vegetarian dogs.   There is something for everyone from healthy salads to juicy all American burgers. Do not let the name of the restaurant fool you expect more and at reasonable prices.

The turkey dog is plump and juicy one of the better ones I have tasted in a long time.  Make it a combo with fresh homemade potato chips that are addicting or traditional with fries.  I prefer mine old school with mustard, sauerkraut and grilled onions. 

Be daring and go for Uncle Frank’s Hot Italian Sausage.  Made with mild Italian pork sausage, cracked fennel, garlic, Romano cheese and red wine.  It is delicious and will want you coming back for more.

All salads, hot dogs and burgers are made to order.  The sauces are more than just ketchup and relish.  You choose from Frank’s sauce, ranch dressing, Thousand Island, Cleveland stadium relish, Chipotle Mayo and many more selections.  Top it off with jalapeños, relish, sauerkraut, pickles, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, coleslaw, hot pastrami and bacon. 

This place rates 3 forks with me for keeping it real.  Just a tip if the staff fails to pile on the toppings just keeping asking, they will do it.  The owner is very hands on and customer orientated.
