Where: Frank, in Austin, TX.
What: the Carolina Pork It!, which in fact has an exclamation point in its name. A cheese-stuffed dog wrapped in bacon and deep-fried, and topped with great slaw.
With whom: Allie, and her friends B. & J.
Why: Deep fried. Bacon. Cheese. Slaw. The name.
Grade: B+. I had some straight up dogs from Frank the day before this, at a sandlot baseball game, and the strength of their dogs is in their mustards and the actual dog, and the excess of this almost distracted from it. But then there was deep fried bacon, so. Also could have used more contribution from the cheese, which got lost in everything else.
