Oscar Mayer Hot Dogs @ ATL

Flying through Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport today en route to Lafayette, La. While I'm looking forward to a tasty meal of Cajun cuisine tonight, I needed a little somethin' somethin' to tide me over. That somethin' was a tasty, grilled hot dog from an Oscar Mayer shop in Terminal C.So many hot dog types to choose from, ranging from Cajun to Texan and New York to Chicago. I went with the Chicago dog. Add a medium drink (Cherry Coke - a dining spot after my heart) and the tab was about $5.50. The toppings making it a Chicago dog were piled high, as pictured. It included spicy mustard, chopped tomato, cucumber slices, little hot peppers, relish, and chopped onions. Yum!

Unless I wanted a scent of eu du Chicago dog lingering over me for the rest of the day, there was no way I could have eaten this without a fork (and wish I grabbed a knife - plastic knives are allowed, right?). The bun was a little soggy and I'm thinking it was from all the juicy toppings.

Anyway, the dog was pretty good. I've had hot dogs from Nathan's over in Terminal T and those are pretty tasty but limited in toppings. The variety of choices atop a grilled hot dog definitely make Oscar Mayer in the Atlanta Airport a home run!
