A Sausage Shack in Winter Park? How’d this get past me?
On average, I find myself in Central Florida about twelve times a year. Sometimes it’s only for one day and others; it’s a weeklong excursion.
My main goal is always to track down comfort food spots that you (the Burger Beast reader) and I would thoroughly enjoy. It’s still about spreading that food love around.
I was in Orlando when a friend of mine asked if I had eaten at Sausage Shack yet. Yet?
How about I didn’t even know about it, and it appears to be right up my meat-loving alley!
My bud and John take a good long look at the menu with the added pressure that it looks like it’s about to rain. There is only outdoor sitting, which means we might end up picnicking inside my car instead.
It never did end up raining, though.
We didn’t go too crazy and stuck to a few essential cylindrical meats.
We opted for the six-inch all-beef dog on a hot dog bun with deli mustard, nothing wrong with that guy at all.
The beer brat on a Franch roll with deli mustard was also delicious, but the mild Italian sausage & peppers are where I felt they nailed it.
We were this close to ordering the Bangers & Mash but were already mid-mash potato & gravy when that revelation happened.
Next time maybe?
There’s a Donut Dog with sweet relish, sweet hot mustard & cheese sauce on a fresh-baked roll tossed in sugar that sounds like it could go either way.
But don’t you worry your little hearts out there in Burger Beast-land about the Donut Dog, I will find out for us on my next trip.
