The 4505 hot dog is “bacon-studded,” meaning it won’t be entombed in slabs of bacon, but it packs a subtle bacon-y kick. The dog is naturally smoked and served on an Acme bun with a side of pickles. Unlike most hot dog joints, the sides here are as worthy as the main event. The potato salad, baked beans and tangy coleslaw are all great, but the real star is the Frankaroni: a crispy-on-the-outside, gooey-on-the-inside brick of fried mac and cheese with hot dogs baked in. The picnic table seating is all outdoors (mercifully, under heat lamps) and dogs (the furry kind) are welcome.
