Many people know Strasburg, VA, about 80 miles west of Washington, DC, for it’s antique malls. On our last trip we discovered Old Dominion Doggery right on the main street in town. We have probably driven passed it 10 or 15 times over the years. Something caught my eye and my brain screamed “HOT DOGS”.
I had to go for the Chopper Dog, wrapped in Bacon, deep fried, then topped with BBQ Sauce, Onions, and Relish. It was off-the-charts good. A great combination of sweet, tangy, and a salty crunch from the deep fried bacon.
If you are rolling through the area and hungry for something different consider stopping in. The food is simple high quality fare at a reasonable price. The staff is friendly and the noise level was low late in the afternoon.
While they serve a similar purpose, baking powder and baking soda are different and not necessarily interchangeable.
