Sometimes you want to eat at a stylish white-tablecloth restaurant where you’ll be served a multi-course tasting menu paired with the finest wines. Sometimes you don’t. Sometimes you want to go somewhere just a little dive-y and eat the kind of food your mother rejected as “too trashy” when you were a child and wash it down with a nice cold beer, preferably a Miller High Life. In short, sometimes you want a corn dog. This glorious creation consists of a hot dog dipped in cornbread batter and then fried and served, as so many good and true foods are, on a stick. While corn dogs are readily available during fair season (does anyone else miss the Roslindale carnival that used to happen every Memorial Day on the VFW Parkway? Just us? Okay, then.), they can be difficult to find at restaurants. Fortunately, MenuPages’ Find-a-Food search is here to come to your rescue. Behold! Three corn dogs to cease your craving.
•At $4.50, a corn dog is one of the cheapest dishes you can order at Summer Shack, but fortunately, the restaurant isn’t too fancypants. If you feel like participating in the dining equivalent of wearing an H&M; dress with Christian Louboutins, order a half-dozen of the Shack’s screamingly fresh oysters before your dog.
•At Boston College standby Moogy’s, the corn dog is dipped in honey before getting fried. Sweet!
•The Lower Depths, fancifies its corn dog with a tempura batter in place of the usual cornbread. This never would have happened at Deli Haus.
