I’ve never been a big fan of hot dogs, but I’ve been hearing about a tasty hot dog shack in Provo for ages, called J Dawgs, and I decided that I’d better give it a try…and I’m so glad that I did!
They offer 2 varieties of dog, beef and Polish, both of which are enormous (foot long, inch thick). My wife and I both went with beef, and I can easily say that these were the best hot dogs that I’ve ever had. A single dog will set you back just $3, a hot dog and chips for $4, and a dog, chips and a drink for $5. The buns were incredible, and I’m told that they are made fresh each day at a local bakery. And of course, the pièce de résistance was the “special sauce”, a sweet southern barbecue sauce that every person in line seemed to add to their dog 🙂
In fact, J Dawgs are so amazingly delicious that they have moved from the little shack on the corner to the building on the corner. I’ve even heard rumors that they were pulling in over $1,000,000/yr in gross revenue while operating out of their little shack! That is pretty dang impressive, and says a lot about their food.
Whether you like hot dogs or not, I highly suggest you give J Dawgs a taste. They are open Monday-Friday from 11am to 8pm, and Saturday from 12-4pm. They are located at 880 North 700 East, Provo UT, just southeast of BYU campus. You can reach them by phone at 801-373-3294. You can view their menu here: Best Hot Dogs in Utah
