July is National Hot Dog Month

July is National Hot Dog Month

Who knew that July is National Hot Dog Month? We certainly didn’t for awhile, but now we do and we’re letting everyone know!


Whether you like naked dogs, chili dogs, or more condiments on your hot dog than actual hot dog, you’ll be happy to know that Giles County has more places to satisfy your hot dog needs than you think. Here are our top places to fix our hot dog cravings when we get them:


  1. Friends and Family Restaurant– Friends and Family isn’t only known for its Sunday buffet and breakfast items. They are also known for their 100% all beef hotdogs, so try ordering one the next time you’re there.
  2. J&J Grocery– This family run store serves food all day, including hot dogs after breakfast. So the next time you’re in the mood take the quick scenic drive and pick yourself up one.
  3. Hilltop Grocery– Hilltop is a favorite for whatever you decide to get there, but next time try something new and ask for a hot dog!
  4. Cascade Cafe– Fishing trips aren’t the only thing Tangent specializes in. Next time you stop in for a guided fishing trip or equipment rental… try ordering a hot dog or maybe even a polish dog!
  5. Anna’s Restaurant- Cruising down the streets of Narrows may cause you to get a little hungry. Swing by Anna’s and get your hot dogs with all the fixings to ease your hunger.
  6. Hardee’s– Most fast food joints advertise and push their number of burgers, but Hardee’s has a Jumbo Chili Dog that doesn’t sound like it’ll ever disappoint.
  7. Dairy Queen– The King of-or should we say Queen of ice cream also has a Chili Cheese Hot dog that will turn you upside down just like they do their blizzards.


Don’t care too much for the well known hot dog? But prefer it to be dipped in corn meal and fried? Well you’re in luck because Giles County also has two places to get yourself a yummy corn dog!

  1.  Hilltop Grocery- What goes together better than a bag of potato wedges and a corn dog? You’re right, nothing does. Get yourself a corn dog from Hilltop the next time you find yourself in the mood for something tasty!
  2. J&J Grocery- Swing on in the next time you’re feeling a little hungry and order yourself a freshly made corn dog!




6) With the Fourth of July coming up we’re all getting our grills ready and the buns bought. Attend one of the Fourth of July celebrations and maybe buy a hot dog, okay maybe two, and you won’t be disappointed. A great place is the Narrows 68th Homecoming Festival at the Town of Narrows Town Park!
