Comical street carts peddle late-night eats to the Bourbon Street masses..
More a kitschy local institution than a traditional eatery, these weenie-shaped hot-dog carts prowl the French Quarter serving up gastrointestinal ballast for inebriated Bourbon Street tourists. During peak party times, every street corner seems to be occupied by a distinctive red and yellow Lucky Dog wagon manned by a somewhat surly sausage technician.
When you order a late-night meal from a giant metal frankfurter, there's very little room for mystery or confusion. The hot dogs and spicy smoked sausages are boiled for hours and topped with a simple range of nonperishable condiments: mustard, hot white onions and straight-outta-the-can chili. Not much for taste and definitely no match for NYC's Coney Island dogs, but the Lucky Dog mystique relies more on accessibility than flavor. The drunker you are, the better they taste.
REALLY GOOD HOTDOGS. I haven't found a better hotdog any where. Plain or dressed, they are great.
10. i don't know where they get these hotdogs from, but they r the best!!!
Best Dogs Ever!. When you go to downtown New Orleans this is one of those things you just can't leave without trying. These hot dogs are by far the best hot dogs I have ever had and I've tried quite a few in many other places.
New Orleans Finest. Although its nothing but a hot dog, NO ONE should visit New Orleans without a lucky dog or two. Its like red beans without rice....simply New Orleans
Doesn't take a dunce to know good!.
Lucky dog. Lucky dog. Put a hot steamy...
two warm buns...
I miss the way they used hawk their wares. But I have to say the creole sausage is a guilty pleasure.
If you read Confederacy of Dunces, you'll understand why Lucky Dogs are the real New Orleans thing!
