Hot dog of a lunch

Posted Monday, June 15, 2009, at 6:40 PM

Last week I wrote an article about the hot dog cart run by Bob and Raylene Dennis, and today I decided to take the three block walk from The Tribune to his cart and partake in a polish sausage with kraut.

I have made it no secret that hot dogs are my favorite food. I'm pretty sure that I could eat hot dogs everyday for the rest of my life. I don't know everything that goes into making a hot dog and to be entirely honest with you ... I don't care!

I thought that for less than $5, I couldn't really go wrong for a polish sausage for lunch. When I got there, he greeted me with a smile as he does with every customer. I told him what I wanted and he pulled out a large polish sausage and my eyes lit up with delight in anticipation of the ensuing enjoyment. I opted not to get a soda or a bag of chips because I'm not that big a fan of chips and I already had soda back at the office, so I took my lunch and headed back to work.

When I got back to the office I sat down at my desk and was pleasantly surprised when I took that first bite. The sausage was moist and cooked to perfection. In combination with the kraut, it may have been the best polish sausage I have ever eaten.

The only thing that could have made the experience better was if I were at a baseball game. That an maybe a little mustard.

I really hope that people will visit the big red and yellow umbrella. People who visit Bob will get two things, a great hot dog and smile on their face.
