Take a Guess What I Ordered at Bubby’s Brisket and Bugsby’s Wieners
I can’t help but love the idea of a little shack that serves up a limited random menu of meat. So when a friend who lives right by Bubby’s Brisket and Bugsby’s Weiners told me about it, I was happily confused. Brisket and hot dogs? I could be very into that.
Half a brisket sandwich is $6 and a hot dog with the works (kraut, onions, relish) is only one dollar! Chili dogs, and big ass 1/4 dogs are also on the menu. So are cheesesteaks, but I needed to stick to Bubby’s signature sandwich.
The half sandwich is pretty hefty. The chopped brisket pieces were totally soft as buttah. I should have gotten some cheese on it to kick up the flavor, but overall I was really pleased with what Bubby had to offer.
So, I was exceptionally staving at lunchtime and kept saying yes to whatever the staff asked me and ended up accidentally agreeing to a chili dog, when I wanted a regular hot dog. Oops. Either way, their snappy hot dogs were surprisingly great. And who sells hot dogs for only a dollar anymore? Especially when that dollar includes a big helping of kraut and onions.
Good team work, Bubby and Bugsby!
