Restaurants in Columbus, GA

Dinglewood scrambled dog is reason enough to eat in Columbus, Georgia. At this still-working pharmacy’s lunch counter, aficionados use knife and fork to dig into a sliced-up wiener and bun smothered with chili, oyster crackers, and pickles. It’s a fine, fine mess. Dinglewood’s dog menu also includes a chili bun (like the scrambled dog, but without the dog), a Mexican scrambled dog (add Fritos), and a slaw dog. If you’re not interested in a scrambled dog or one of its relatives (or any of the more normal sandwiches at the pharmacy lunch counter), check out our other Columbus suggestion, Country’s Barbecue, where the hickory-and-oak cooked pork comes with such local faves as Brunswick stew, sweet potato souffle, and cornbread.
