Most hot dog joints offer the same standard toppings: ketchup, mustard, relish, pickles, and maybe a few others. Pauly's Famous Franks N Fries is not like most hot dog joints. The gourmet shop serves more than 65 signature hot dogs, drawing culinary inspiration from across the globe and topping their all-beef dogs with the freshest ingredients.
Pauly's menu is divided into three categories of hot dogs: New School, Globe Trotter, and State Side. Their buns are delivered straight from the oven of a neighborhood baker and are promptly filled with Angus beef sausages in natural casings. From there, patrons can let their taste buds journey in the interplay of the Cuban’s garlic mojo, pineapple, and onions or the Greek's tzatziki, kalamata olives, tomatoes, and sliced onion. Others opt for the steamed familiarity of the classic Chicago dog, dragged through the garden and adorned with racy sport peppers. Chefs apply the same inventiveness to spice up their house-cut Kennebec French fries, topping baskets with chili cheese and bacon, buffalo sauce, or a magnetic force field to block random grabs by jealous passerby.
