Dash-N-Dogz in Florence, South Carolina

After grabbing a quick lunch at The Drive-In (135 E Palmetto Street, Florence, South Carolina), I went to drop off Marcela & Chunktronics at the Palmetto Peddlers (2295 Hoffmeyer Road) Antique Mall. When I’m halfway there, I spot Dash-N-Dogz on my right.

I park right in front so I can make my usual quick escape. Upon opening the door, there’s an unused room with seating. It’s beyond that room that all of the action is happening.

To my left, there are some old-school 1970s fast food-style booths with a high-top counter and barstools to my direct right. Everyone behind the counter greets me after making myself at home on the first stool.

They’re telling me I need their cheeseburger and chili dog in my life. I cave into their demands. I’m weak-willed when it comes to hamburgs and wieners; what do you want me from?

Dash-N-Dogz’s hand-pattied burger is hefty and cooked medium-well. I got my cheeseburger with grilled onions, mustard, and slices of American and mozzarella cheese.

On the side are some extra crispy crinkle-cut fries with their secret seasoning. Then, after a few burger bites, my sights were set on the chili dog.

Time for the Main Event, the Dash-N-Dogz Chili Dog

Losing Your Mind

The dogs and sausages are cooked on cylindrical meat rollers you find at convenience stores. They piled on their housemade chili with diced red onions and yellow mustard.

This fella was so heavy that you had no choice but to eat it while using the foil wrapping as a carrier. But, look…this dude is spectacular. It’s not that the burger isn’t good, but this dog is next level.

I’m handed a little taste of Shirley’s Famous Chicken Salad. Since I’m not much of a chicken salad kinda guy, I bring the sample to Marcela.

She is a connoisseur in the salad world (chicken, egg, potato & tuna) and gives me the big thumbs up.

Speaking of Marcela and Chunktronics, it was time to head back to pick them up. I was absolutely positive that Chunktronics would lose his mind over the chili dog, and he did!
