Frederic's review is a bit of a shocker...first bad review of Big AppleHot Dogs I've read. Oh well you can't win them all... I hope you spoke to the vendor... I am sure they would reimburse you for any below par product.

As of April 2014, Big Apple Hot Dogs will only occasionally be at this site (Fridays are your best bet). Alternatively, on Thursday evenings from 17 April, they can be found at Camden street food festival Out the Box. There are plans in progress for a more permanent, collaborative offering in the Old Street area - watch this space.
Hot dogs: much maligned by those who care about what they eat due to their uncertain provenance and comical appearance. The fact they’re also known as ‘wieners’ doesn’t help.
But here to save the skin-clad meat tube from ignominy is Big Apple Hot Dogs, a mobile cart on Old Street that uses specially commissioned sausages made from free-range pork and buns baked by Anderson’s bakery of Hoxton.
There are various sizes and meat combinations (pork, beef, pork and beef) and the full range of expected condiments that are guaranteed to be decorating your top before the last bite. And the taste is a revelation for those who would normally avoid hot dogs – coarsely meaty, flavoursome and evocative of baseball games, worlds fairs and competitive eating. Delicious.

I've had Big Apple's hot dogs several times at the Kerb event in front of the Gherkin (more appropriate a place to serve burgers?) [ http://www.kerbfood.com/gherkin/ ] and last week was doubly disappointing. I had their double-header, two thin franks in a bun, and the filling was full of chewy bits. They go to great lengths to tell you how they carefully select the meat so this came as a nasty surprise. I've had their Big Pole before as well, and it was quite good, but now I'm really wary to try it again. What a big let-down, Big Apple... I'll give you two stars for past services rendered.
Saw a recommend for you on the Mark Wright TV show July 22 or 23 what are your other locations? venues and times , How about Camden Lock, . By the Bridge,...or next to the Hawley arms.....or inside the Stables Market.,,,,,Check it out,...you gotta get up there. Let me know when you do. I really miss a good hot dog. Its the first thing I do when I get over to NY. Stuff a couple of dogs.
Big Apple Hot Dogs rocks!!! Excellent food and the guy who runs it is such a nice chap to chat with.
