Ruby Tuesday #15: Good Dog!


"Iconic Dog"
Raleigh, NC - September 2008 (Click to embiggen)

Ruby Tuesday - Are you red-dy? Hosted at

Snoopy's is an institution in Raleigh. It started with one location on Old Wake Forest Rd in 1978, and now has branched out to three additional locations in Raleigh. The one you see here is on Hillsboro Street, a few blocks from the campus of NC State University. It's still locally owned and operated, and in addition to expanding locations, the menu has grown as well. But you'll still get the best dogs in town here. That hasn't changed.

This reminds me of Yum-Yums on the campus of UNCG. The best hotdogs. It is as much an institution as the Library. Makes me want one right now. See ya!

No cute puppy? Oh, OK, I guess you gotta like hot dogs to like Snoopy's. It's quite red, their sign.

Mojo, A perfectly RED sign for Snoopys and the best hot dogs! We have to compare dogs some day - we have Nathan's in Brooklyn... Happy Ruby Tuesday! Mr. Linky is up! :)

Nice pic of good memories, BUT I had hoped to get a glimpse of the real thing. I mean Snoopy.

Glad to learn this address.
If I come in Raleigh, in many, many , many years I'll remember.
If I never come, well, I'll miss The institution, I guess.

Snoopy! A name one can't forget.

I love Snoopy, but only as a cartoon character.

On the other hand, I love a good dog, bratwurst, or Ital sausage. For the institution, I'll take a beef one, the casing cooked to a snap, and covered with a thin strip of a nice Polish mustard. the roll is secondary, but if it is grilled first, I won't mind.

Someday I may reserve with Southwest Airlines to RDU and see if the dogs are really that good...

Now that's a lotta red. Next time I'm in Raleigh, I'll have to stop there. I do love me a good 'dog.

I was hoping to see Snoopy the Dog up top - that would be cool.
A great red capture and good info for those heading your way.

Dogs from Snoopy's now that's funny, LOL. Great name!

Pea in a Pod said...

That's intriguing! But very red indeed! :D

Mine is here.

Robin said...

I so want a really good hot dog with all the trimmings right now. Especially relish. There's no relish in Israel. I miss relish.

Julie said...

No relish in Israel? That's terrible!

Great picture Mojo...I like signs that aren't cluttered and are visible while blasting down the road!

Dianne said...

that looks like a great place to stop and indulge

Daryl said...

Hold the dog, but the bun and some beer would be nice

Kay said...

Heh yay for irony yes?

I don’t eat hot dogs because they kinda gross me out… so I will take your word for it that this place offers the best ones :)
