Absolute best hot dog meat sauce was served by Carlot’s restaurant in Monongah, West Virginia. Carlot’s was across from Monongah High School when I was a student there from 1960 till 1964. I have never found a better hot dog in my travels across the United States. Ben’s Chili Bowl in Washington D.C. and the Ritzi Lunch in Clarksburg, West Virginia are two excellent hot dogs but neither surpasses Carlot’s. Lupo’s restaurant in Fairmont, West Virginia served one of the best hot dogs in my memory but alas Lupo’s was forced out of business by the city of Fairmont and the U.S. Post office which took all of their parking. All of the very best hot dogs have several things in common: Buns that are steamed; weiners that are cooked in hot oil; and weiners that are small in diameter. One place that I forgot to mention was Pink’s hot dogs server at their Las Angeles location. The one in Las Vegas was terrible.

I am looking for the recipe for the Eckard Drug store lunch counter’s hotdog sauce. I had it in the late 50s in Greenville South Carolina. I believe it had katsup rather than tomato sauce.
Hoping in Florida

Several other extremely good hot dogs could be found at Sisler’s hot dogs on route 19 south before you reached Clarksburg, West Virginia. Hot dogs we $0.10 cents each. Davis restaurant in enterprise served an excellent hot dog for the same price. Shame that nobody was able to get the recipes for these two restaurants hot dogs along with Carlot’s restaurant in Monongah, west virginia. West Virginia restaurant served a very good hot dog or maybe it was the waitress who waited on me. Memory isn’t as good as when I was eating there along about 1974-75. I think the waitress was named patty. Never knew her last name just that she was very friendly and genuinely nice.

I really enjoy your site. Thanks to all who have shared their favorite recipes. I was wondering by chance, if anyone may have the hotdog sauce recipe to Chatterbox hotdogs? It was located in Kenova, WV.
I have looked for years and have yet to see it. I’ve tried some that came close but something is missing from the original recipe.
