Great job! I really enjoyed reading your comments. For me it’s always fun to hear opinions of the places that I’ve been to, especially from someone going there for the first time. I should have told you to try the dog from the Galloping Hill Inn without the chili. The dog is better either plain or with some of their Dusseldorf mustard which is very good. This is one great dog. The chili isn’t that good and I think it’s the reason that Holly only gave it 3 grease stains.
Jerry’s and Tommy’s use an all beef dog that to me is spicier than the dogs used by the other 3 places. Maybe it’s just the different spices in an all beef dog (garlic and paprika) that stand out. The Galloping Hill’s dog is very flavorful with a different spicing.
Rutt’s Hut is a place that evokes a wide variety of opinions. It seems that people either love or hate the dogs there. My family hates them and won’t eat there. I love these dogs, although lately I enjoy the grilled beef/pork dogs from Galloping Hill Inn and the Windmill in my area more than the deep fried rippers. Next time you have to at least look in the bar area. A great place to have a few beers. It has an old time look and feel. They also have a dining area back there too.
Next time you’re in the area, let me suggest that you try Syd’s and Charlies. Charlies is right off exit 138 of the Parkway, but instead of turning right like you would for the Galloping Hill Inn, turn left, go about half a mile and turn left on Michigan Ave. Charlies is right there. Very clean and they have a restroom, as does Syd’s. And you can get a single Italian Hot dog which is bigger than Tommy’s for about $3.00
