You know how we love our over-the-top gourmet HOT DOGS here at the DFB!
Gasparilla Island Grill
From the Barbecue Slaw Hot Dog and Chili-Cheese Dog at Casey’s Corner, to the Coney Island Dog at The Lunching Pad, to the fun assortment at The Mara in Animal Kingdom Lodge (the Mara BLT Hot Dog, the Reuben Hot Dog, and the African Chili-Cheese Hot Dog)… well, the bigger the variety of toppings to choose from, the better!
And now we’re excited to have SEVEN new gourmet hot dogs to add to the list at the Grand Floridian’s Gasparilla Island Grill! But there’s a little twist: the menu rotates. There are seven different hot dogs, with a different one featured each day of the week. Each hot dog is inspired by a different city or state in the U.S. So, let’s take a Hot Dog Tour of the country — courtesy of Gasparilla Island Grill — starting in…
Cleveland — Available on Sundays
The Cleveland Dog is topped with coleslaw and hot sauce. And the fries? Don’t look on the side for for this natural pairing, because they’re on top of this dog, too!
Seattle — Available on Mondays
The Seattle Dog is topped with cream cheese (now, why didn’t I think of that?), but you’ll have to look under a huge — and SPICY! — pile of jalapeños, cabbage, and Sriracha to find it!
Kansas City — Available on Tuesdays
Sauerkraut and Swiss cheese surround the Kansas City Dog, served on a sesame seed bun.
Memphis — Available on Wednesdays
Bacon, barbecue sauce, chopped scallions, shredded cheddar… what’s not to love about the Memphis Dog?
Idaho — Available on Thursdays
The Idaho Dog is the only Hot Dog of the assortment that will NOT be served on a bun baked fresh in the Grand Floridian Bakery. That’s because it’s served on a BAKED POTATO! Bacon bits, chives, sour cream, and cheddar cheese round out the toppings.
New York — Available on Fridays
The New York Dog is a classic: mustard, sauerkraut, and onion sauce make up the toppings list.
Chicago — Available on Saturdays
The Chicago Dog comes complete with a pickle spear, tomatoes, whole sport peppers, chopped onions, green relish, and mustard… oh, and a dash or two of celery salt, of course. It’s all on a poppy seed bun.
So, there you have it… seven new reasons to visit Gasparilla Island Grill (if you’re a hot dog fan, of course!). Will you be taking that monorail trip from the Magic Kingdom to try one?
