Hot diggity dog! July is National Hot Dog Month.

In honor of the month, here’s a look at three Triad restaurants featured on a recent list of the best hot dog joints in the Tar Heel state.

Our State Magazine recently published the unranked top 10 list, which included restaurants in Winston-Salem, Greensboro and Burlington.

Kermit’s Hog Dog House in Winston-Salem, Zack’s Hot Dogs in Burlington and Yum Yum Better Ice Cream in Greensboro were all listed.

“Pimento cheese dog. Foot-long. Slaw dog. Grilled. Deep-fried. People come to Kermit’s for a taste of nostalgia. They come for a hot dog that reminds them of home,” the article said about Kermit’s.

Mike’s Chicago Dog and More in Asheboro didn’t make the state’s top 10, but was also recommended.

Next Sunday, July 23, is National Hot Dog Day.
