National Hot Dog Day July 23, 2015


The Greasy Wiener loves the month of July, we get to observe Hot Dog Month for 31 days and our favorite food holiday falls on July 23, 2015 (insert drum roll sound...) National Hot Dog Day! As we celebrate this great day in honor of The Wiener here’s a flashback to an old post you might have missed when CBS LA included us as one of the select local businesses featured in the “best of” food and drink category, for “Best Hot Dogs in Los Angeles“! We were also the only gourmet hot dog food truck in Los Angeles in this category!

So as we’re just days away from Hot Dog Day and at the tail end of Hot Dog Month now is the better time to come visit us at one of our stops around SoCal and here’s just a reminder as to what makes our hot dogs so worthy of the title “Best Hot Dogs in Los Angeles“.

We won’t give away too many of our secrets but our original all beef wiener comes from hormone and steroid free cattle that have no by-products and no fillers, one of the reasons why our hot dogs are so positively delicious. We only use beef trim or picnic (trim) ensuring there is no “Mystery Meat” leftovers used to make our product, only the highest quality for our hot dogs.  All of our hot dogs and sausages go through a quick flash fry process which is a process used to quickly deep fry, a method we became familiar with from hot dog eateries that we used to visit in our hometown in New Jersey. We also only use canola oil to cook both our dog and sausages and they are used in separate fryers for both the vegetarian dog and french fries on our menu— the end result is an awesome tasting wiener!


As we make a few updates to our schedule for July 23rd we’ll also have a HOT DOG DAY promotion so take advantage of this deal – Valid for 7/23/15 only you can upgrade to any of our premium hot dogs —Bomb Dog, LA Street Dog or The Hippie (Veggie) Dog all for the same price as the original classic all beef dog TGW $6! Just mention that it’s HOT DOG DAY when you place you order and we’ll honor that deal!

We can’t wait to celebrate this great day with you!
