Pass the Dogs!

Shorty's Hotdogs & Texas Pete

Summer is just around the corner…and summer in the south makes me think of some of my favorite things: Trips to the beach, pool time, baseball, grilling out, and delicious southern hot dogs (chili and slaw please)! The consensus among Wake Forest residents (and perhaps even all of Wake County) is that the best place to grab a hot dog in town is Shorty’s, hands down!  Shorty’s is a hot dog joint that has been around since 1916 and is still located in the same building after all these years! They must be doing something right!

Shorty’s is decorated with lots of 1960’s photos, old posters and even has the original menu hanging on the wall. All the reviews boast that this is a great place for good food, good prices, fast service & friendly staff. Also, rumor has it that Shorty’s used to be Arnold Palmer’s old college hangout!
