On Saturday mornings, make sure to stop by the Summerville Farmer's Market on W. Doty Ave off Main St in Summerville. Pick up farm fresh fruits and vegetables, and other neat crafts. But hang around until 11am and wait in line at Perfectly Franks to get your gourmet hot dog, taco or burger. I must admit I can't remember the last time I ate a hot dog. I've always enjoyed mine with sauerkraut, mustard and mozzarella cheese. It's something from my childhood that Dad got us hooked on after he returned from Germany.
You'll be impressed by Perfectly Franks's assortment of dog arrangements including toppings such as pimento cheese, pineapple, cream cheese, blue cheese coleslaw, Dr. Pepper BBQ sauce and fried onions. I recommend the "Franky Luv"-coleslaw, Dr. P BBQ sauce, and fried onions, the "Aretha Franklin"-pulled pork, BBQ sauce,slaw and fried onions or the Frank Cuda (aka Bama)-chili, cheese, blue cheese coleslaw, bacon and fried onions. I can't speak for the burgers but I heard more than once that the "Big Squeeze" is pretty tasty. Don't forget to get a side of sweet potato fries (enough for 2 to share) or home made fries with sea salt and vinegar or chili or cheese. There are 2 small tables inside and a few outside patio tables so plan to have a seat on the curb if the tables are taken. It's worth it!
Perfectly Franks is a family tradition since 1895. They even deliver with a minimum $15/order.
Open from 11am-7pm Monday through Saturday ~ 119 West Doty Ave, Summerville, SC ~ 843-871-9730
