Using a pillowy bun as a barrier, hot dogs are safely protected from environmental hazards such as open manholes and greasy-handed schoolchildren. Enjoy snugly shielded franks with today's Groupon: for $4, you get your choice of any two gourmet hotdogs from Conez & Coneyz on aptly named Frankfort Avenue, up to a $7.50 value. This Groupon is good for dine-in or carryout.
The Crescent Hill ice cream stand and hotdogerie serves up 12 flavorful frank creations, offered with a choice of a kosher, Kowalski, vegetarian, or vegan rod-shaped bun filler. Stop in for a junk yard dog ($3.25) after a long day at the cricket grounds, and savor the sauerkraut- and swiss-covered creation while children scream for the Tijuana dog ($3.75), smothered in guacamole, bacon, and tomatoes. All the gourmet dogs are presented on a choice of white or wheat bun and are adorned with tasty toppings. Match your double dose of savory with a Conez sweet: ice cream is available in kiddie ($1.00), half ($1.95), single ($2.65), and double scoops ($3.85). Generously heaped into a cup, bowl, or cone (add $1.05 for bowls and waffle cones), this frozen superhero springs into action, satisfying sweet cravings and melting all over the tongues of injustice. For dessert elitists, Conez offers further-evolved sugary selections, such as the Sundae's Best, with vanilla ice cream, Ghirardelli chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, walnuts, whipped cream, and a cherry all atop a Ghirardelli brownie ($6.25).
The family-owned-and-operated eatery is nestled in a tiny storefront, and its umbrella-ed outdoor tables make it an ideal place to stop for a breezy summer bite or a hasty pit-stop on a city-wide scavenger hunt. Carnivorous cravings can be held at bay by the hand-held stomach stuffer.
