Without sticks, hockey players would be mistaken for overdressed figure skaters and thrill-seekers would have to nudge napping bears awake with smoked turkey legs. Discover the limitless utility of sticks with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of casual American fare at all of Hot Dog on a Stick's locations, including 70 in California.
Celebrating its 65th anniversary, Hot Dog on a Stick skewers a variety of succulent grub and places pleasantly portable eats within reach of its patrons. Best known for its titular comestible, a 100% turkey hot dog dipped in batter and cooked in vegetable or canola oil ($2.75), Hot Dog on a Stick also employs a crack team of scientists that has pioneered the dipping and be-sticking of a duo of cheeses—mild american and spicy jalapeño jack—to create two varieties of cheese on a stick ($2.75). Provide a potable pairing with a cup of lemonade freshly squeezed from Ventura County lemons ($2.75–$3.25), and admire store employees' gaily striped jockey caps.
