Woofies Hot Dogs

Today we had to make a trip to Home Depot (used a wheelchair) and to the library (shank's mare). I don't want to give the idea that I can't walk on my own but my feeling is that if a wheelchair is available and I can avoid hoofing it - I will!

After our errands I reminded dh about a restaurant that we've had on our 2009 List of Things to Do...Woofies.

As this was an unplanned trip I didn't have my camera on hand - so for some photos you can click here.

Woofies is located on Woodson Road in Overland, Missouri. It's not the nicest area - but seems decent enough.

Woofies opened in 1977 - and by the interior - it looks like it hasn't been updated or even just painted much since that time - which only adds to the charm :) The walls are covered in photos of "famous" folks, copies of newspaper articles featuring Woofies - and various Woofies reviews.

Since we'd only ever driven past it - I thought the only seating was outdoors (under a covered area that had ceiling fans - nice for the hot St. Louis summers) - but was happy to find there was some inside seating...and it was somewhat air-conditioned (cooler than outside).

The kids had corndogs and fries, the hub and I both ordered Chicago-Style hotdogs (tomato wedges, lots of diced onions, sports peppers, pickle, mustard and bright green relish) and fries. Delicious!

The girl commented on how big the corndogs were ("They were almost a footlong!")... The boy thought the corndog was sweeter than others he has had. The hub and I both thought the Chicago dogs were great! The fries were shoestring and fried to perfection!

The french fry portions are very generous...I had ordered one large and one small for the 4 of us to share and we could have done with just one large.

The price was pretty reasonable...for 2 corndogs, 2 Chicago dogs, 1 large fry, 1 small fry, 3 waters (free) and one medium soda - it came to $18.88.

I should point out that Woofies is NOT open on Sunday...we had plans to go there one Sunday for Father's Day and found out it's only open Mon - Saturday.

I could do with a Chicago dog and a large order of fries right now! Oh, and a cold Pepsi!
