Universal Orlando Resort, CityWalk
Vienna, Nathan's Kayem, Farmer John's, Sabrett, Koegel, and bratwurst sausages with a variety of topping; chicken sausage; french fries; potato chips; beer and soda.
Developed by Steve Schussler, the creative force behind Rainforest Cafe and T-REX, Hot Dog Hall of Fame is a tribute to the iconic baseball park food. From the mustard bar curated by the National Mustard Museum in Wisconsin, to famous dogs from ballparks across the nation like the Dixie Dog and the Dirty Water Dog, Hot Dog Hall of Fame will resonate with baseball enthusiasts and foodies alike. The venue features large-screen televisions and bleacher-type seating for those interested in catching a game. As an added bonus, the bleacher seats themselves come from actual MLB ballparks. As Jurassic Park's John Hammond would say, "We spared no expense!"
The sausages, buns, and toppings are all authentic and perfectly prepared, but since the dogs all cost the same your value proposition will vary with the variety; $7 for a New York Sabrett with kraut sounds pretty steep, but the Kansas City (pulled pork & coleslaw) and Milwaukee (bratwurst & grilled onions) dogs deliver a good bang for the buck. There's even a two foot dog for just under twice the price, if you want to share. The posted price is for the pup alone; shoestring fries or house-made chips cost extra, as do the peanuts and Cracker Jacks (natch) for dessert.
Setting and Atmosphere
Unlike traditional hot dog joints which target the richest of Americans, Hot Dog Hall of Fame targets the hoi polloi with fun extras such as "paint your weiner" (a blank vinyl weiner dog which guests can put their own designs on) and a yodeling pickle. Yes, a yodeling pickle! No matter what, given its theming, it’s likely that the Hot Dog Hall of Fame will become a popular stop for guests looking for a quick grab-n-go bite to eat.
Hot Dog Hall of Fame replaces CityWalk's often closed Galaxy Bar directly next to the Studios store.
