Crif Dogs

Our Labor Day weekend "must do" list included a visit to Crif Dogs.

Crif Dog's "hole in the wall" entrance

Not surprisingly, Crif Dogs was packed. For one week, Crif Dogs is giving out free hot dogs through Scoutmob. According to the Scoutmob app, thousands of free hot dogs have been claimed. We went prepared to wait in line and barely made it through the door.

There were a lot of options to choose from, although most were wrapped in bacon or ham (so not M's first choice):

In addition to the free dogs, we got a large lemonade (it was so humid outside!) and some tater tots:

The tater tots were nice and crispy. We were satisfied with them. The only issue that we had was that they were nearly out of ketchup since there had been so many people going in and out all day, and only 2 people seemed to be working in the restaurant.

The two dogs we tried were the chili dog (smothered in mustard, onions and secret chili sauce) and the philly tubesteak (smothered in cheese and sauteed onions):

We both liked the chili dog better. It had pretty much everything that M loves to put on hot dogs, and A just thought the flavors were better. The Philly Tubesteak wasn't bad, but the cheese whiz style sauce just didn't work as well with the hot dog as it would with the chipped beef of an actual cheesesteak. The onions were really tasty, though.

The free Crif Dog promotion goes until September 7, so if you're interested, check it out on Scoutmob! (It may only work on the phone apps if you didn't already claim it.)
