Hot Dog Museum

We didn't see any signs of a museum, 7/19. So we had a hot dog. They are unique and rather expensive. But they are real Red Hots with a little heat and spicy/flavorful. Looks like a popular college hot spot. They really need to revive the museum.

The museum is closed for renovation -- no set date for reopen yet. Hot dog and fries were awesome!

Looks delish -- but we hope this isn't some sly gambit ("Sorry, the museum is closed, but you can create hot dog history by ordering one of these!").

Hot Dog Museum

Hot dogs all have burlesque dancers' names, very unique. Fries very delicious too. When in Athens, Ohio make this a stop.

Garlic French fries are fries with raw chopped garlic on top, very good! Interesting varieties of hot dog and interesting pictures on the wall.

Hot Dog Museum

Inside the "smallest building in Uptown Athens" -- O'Betty's Red Hot! Dogs and Sausages. The best part is that you can enjoy a world-class hot dog or sausage while looking at the exhibits in the museum.
