Could let dogs out, but there’s room inside
Two can eat out for less than $20
Food Editor Catherine Klasne met her husband, Nick, an assistant managing editor, at Stinky Dogs in Daytona Beach for a Valentine’s Day lunch — how romantic!
Q. From the front, this looks
like the smallest restaurant ever. Is there a place to sit and eat?
Oh, yeah, you can carry lunch out, but this shotgun-style eatery goes waaay back into a cozy dining room. There’s a screened picnic area in the back, looking out over a green yard, and that would be perfect on a warmer day.
Q. How do you order?
Step up to the counter in the front and ask for a hot dog one of five ways — a Kansas dog is plain (Kansas, the plains, get it?). Everything on the menu is ready in a flash for you to take to your seat.
We at first tried two Daytona dogs (with slaw, $2.25 each), sides of broccoli salad ($1.35 for small) and macaroni salad ($1.25 for small). Nick had Stink-Ade ($1.50) to drink, which he said was delicious lemonade, despite the name, and I had the sweet tea ($1), which was exceedingly mild.
We passed on dessert in order to try two more dogs, the namesake Stinky (with chili, called “meat sauce” on the menu, $2.50) and the Wisconsin (with cheese, what else? $2.25).
We loved it all, especially the broccoli salad with the little bits of bacon. The dogs had just the right amount of snap and were very meaty on fresh, soft buns.
Q. What else is there?
Six sandwich specials ranging from $4.50 to $5.25 come with a choice of side. A chef salad is $5.25. A dessert, “Annie’s peachy cream,” ($1.25 for small) and milkshakes and root beer floats sound appealing.
Q. OK, we give. Who’s Stinky?
We asked the lady at the counter, but she would admit nothing.
WHERE: 108 Bay St., Daytona Beach, just west of Beach Street
HOURS: 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Saturday. Open later for special events
ACCESSIBILITY: Plenty of parking on Bay Street. Restaurant is all on one level and is deceptively roomy inside. The curb out front is the biggest obstacle.
MISCELLANEOUS: No alcohol. Major credit cards accepted
