For the lucky seventh installment of my quest to eat a hot dog a day in July to celebrate National Hot Dog Month, I returned to an old favorite spot for lunch- Archie's on a Roll. Archie's is located on Simarano Drive in Marlborough, MA; he's open from 11-4, Monday through Friday.
Today was a quick stop- I have already covered Archie's on a Roll on Hot Dog Stories fairly extensively.
A friend of mine who works for the Vermont State Police emailed me and asked if there was any place to get a good Michigan Dog in these parts. Archie's is the ONLY place I know of and the Michigan Dogs are scrumptious. Owner Alan Archibald took over 4 years to perfect his recipe and he slathers his Michigan sauce over Kayem Old Tyme franks. Michigan sauce is a tomato based meat sauce with a hint of chilis and a sweeter back end than most chili/coney island type dogs. The stuff is all the rage in upstate New York and Quebec.
It looks delicious!
This is one good hot dog!
Stop by and give Archie's a try and be sure to tell him "the Hotdogman sent me."
HAPPY NATIONAL HOT DOG MONTH!
