Connecticut Hot Dog joints

Note to self:  Please take photos.
This week I went to
1.  Millsie's Bite the Dog in Windsor Locks, CT.  I usually get the dog dressed with mustard, raw onion and their meat sauce.  But this time I tried the dog with mustard, raw onion and their red relish.   Millsie's is a food truck that sets up on RT 75 just South of RT 20, near Bradley Airport.  Either way I find that their hot dogs are very enjoyable.
2. Chef's in Newington, CT. As usual, I dressed the dog with mustard, raw onion, their hot dog relish and their hot pepper relish.
It is always a treat when I can get a dog at Chefs.

We tried to go to Super Duper Weenie when we were in CT in June but didn't make it.  MH did have a really good hot dog at Sea Swirl in Mystic.
 

 
The dog was good but the clams were better!!!!

Goldburgers in Newington has great dog options (and great burgers!). They offer both a natural casing (beef/pork), and a skinless all beef hot dog.

Top is Slaw dog  bottom pic is just a naked dog, and one that is similar to the Rhode Island System dogs....chili, onion, and celery salt.  I did a review posted under restaurants - you can enlarge the pictures better from that area.

I visited Harry's Place in Colchester, CT yesterday.  While Harry's is noted for their burgers, their hot dogs are very good.
On the left is a cheeseburger with catsup and sauted onions.  On the right is the dog.  If you want the bun  toasted, you need to ask when ordering.  The dog is a commercially available skinless dog.  This dog has mustard, raw onion and pickle relish.  My only criticism is that they dress the roll not the dog.  Going to Harry's is always a treat.

This is a Millsie's dog with mustard, spicy red pepper relish and raw onion.  It is served on a steamed hot dog roll.
As I have written before, Millsie's is a food truck located Rt 75 near Windsor/Windsor Locks, CT line.

This is a plain dog from Chef's in Newington, CT.  The dog is served on a toasted New England hot dog roll.  Chef's has a huge relish bar.
 

This is the dog after I loaded it with mustard, raw onion, Chef's hot dog relish and their spicy pepper relish.

What do you mean by "Done"?    Are they out of business or going out of business?  Or, are you "done" with them because you don't like them?

Nope, Glenn. I mean it as a compliment. As in "start and end of list." Just my fifth of a dime.
