Venue: @mountiesgroup Dish: Aussie Dog Price: $7.65 for members, $9 for guests This hotdog was jam packed full of delicious elements. There was a really generous amount of guacamole, which is always a positive to us! The bun was toasted but still lovely and soft, it was saucy, and the coleslaw gave nice texture to it. Overall, a yummy hotdog that we really enjoyed! 🌭👏
Now, people are covering their hot dogs in guacamole, bacon, cheese, barbecue sauce, and more.

When BB Classic Dogs tweeted this, someone replied, “People actually buy this?!”
BB Classic Dogs responded, “They do and they like it – the banana threw them for a loop, so it took some twisting of arms to try it – but hey if Elvis can eat it, why can’t we put it on a hot dog :-)”
