I called Hot Dog Johnny’s today and spoke with the owner. I wanted to ask her for directions and then I was planning to find out how the dogs were cooked by telling her that one of my children can’t eat fried foods and asking if the dogs were prepared this way. She told me to check their website (http://www.hotdogjohnnys.com) for directions and then hung up before I could ask about the dogs. I called back, and she told me that they fry everything including the dogs. So you were right and I was wrong. Last time I was there, I was told that the dogs were boiled. Perhaps the employee meant boiled in oil? I’m planning on making a return trip sometime this week.
