Hot Dog Wars Move to the Court Room

In a fight over the best hot dog, Sara Lee (maker of Ball Park Franks) and Kraft Foods (maker of Oscar Mayer) have taken their BEEF to the courts.

The arguments center around a hot dog taste test which Oscar Mayer claims to have won. Sara Lee has claimed that the taste test was deeply flawed for a variety of reasons.

My questions is this...How can you possibly have a national taste test for the best hot dog and leave out the very best hot dog made by Hummel Bros. for Yank's Franks?

I have had many Ball Park Franks and many Oscar Mayer Wieners. Those hot dogs are very good, but they are not even close to Hummel Bros. No wonder they kept Hummel out of their test.

We've said it before and we'll say it again...

Frankly, WE serve the BEST dogs!

The Hot Dog Man Tours Southern Maine

The Hot Dog Man and his wife, Mrs. HDM set out on a tour of Southern Maine and his first stop...you guessed it, Yank's Franks.

The Hot Dog Man pulled into the Yank's Franks parking lot at about noon last Friday. He and Mrs. HDM unloaded their fancy, schmancy video equipment from their vehicle and proceeded to snap photos and conduct interviews for his Yank's Franks review.

Frankly, we can't wait to see the final result.

Yank's Franks Scores High In "New England's Best Hot Dog" Poll

Yank's Franks takes second place in the voting for New England's Best Hot Dog. Not bad for a "hot dog joint" that opened less than a year ago.

Yank's was up against some of the toughest competition in New England.

Connecticut alone is home to some amazing hot dog joints (after all it was a Connecticut Hot Dog Joint that was the inspiration behind Yank's) scattered all over the State.

Rhode Island has great places and has their own method of serving dogs, oddly enough called New York System Weiners. Yank's Franks customers from Rhode Island rave about them.

Maine has the old stand by Flo's one of this year's nominees and winner last year.

Anyway, this isn't about the other hot dog joints, this article is about the wonderful people that voted for Yank's Franks in this year's NECN poll , Baby You're the Best!

Thank you all for taking the time to vote for Yank's Franks, it is very much appreciated.

Frankly, Yank's Franks has the BEST customers!
