Wherever I go, I'm always on the lookout for a great hot dog, or for that matter, any hot dog.  While attending the 2015 Strawberry Festival, held at the Placer County Fairgrounds in Roseville, I had the opportunity to enjoy a delicious bacon-wrapped Polish dog, served by a restaurant without a name.

Photo:  There is a area, at the Placer County fairgrounds, known as "Food Court," and it's populated by - you guessed it - food vendors!  When I go to a fair, or a festival, I'm always drawn to hot dogs, and today, Sunday, May 10, 2015, was no exception.  There were a couple of hot dog vendors at the 2015 Strawberry Festival, but I was drawn to this vendor, as they offered bacon wrapped Polish dogs.  That puts me in business!

Photo:  I look inside the tent that seems to be the main preparation area, and find a very busy scene.  It appears to be a family operation, as mother, and one of the sons can be seen in the photo.

Photo:  The menu is limited, but as varied as it gets, and seems to include Thai dishes, Chinese favorites, a Polish dog, wrapped in bacon - which I "zoned-in" on - and even churros!  I can't even begin to speculate upon the cuisine of this little food vendor except to say I was drawn like a moth to the flame by the Polish dog, wrapped in bacon.

Photo:  The bacon-wrapped Polish dog have been grilled, and stored into a warmer.  Here, mom grabs a warm Polish dog, wrapped in bacon, to place on my bun.

Photo:  Mom hands my a Polish dog, wrapped in bacon, and a Pepsi, which was the drink of my choice.  For only $7.00, you get a bacon-wrapped Polish dog, a soda, and a bag of chips.  Not a shabby deal at a festival such as the 2015 BerryFest.  


I truly wanted to get more information from the staff about this restaurant, but there seemed to be language issues, and they were very busy, and I really didn't want to pester them.  I asked the kid with the pointed hat if they had any business cards, and he didn't say anything, and just shook his head to indicate "no."  No name, and no information...

Photo:  The condiment bar, with my naked dog, ready to be dressed.  I found the Chinese condiments interesting, and almost thought of putting some of them on my dog, but thankfully, I came to me senses!

Photo:  My dog is dressed out in relish and mustard, and is ready to enjoy.  The dog is wrapped in bacon, and weights a quarter pound.  Considering the soft drink and chips, this is a good deal.  The dog was delicious!

Great dog, served at a great price, from a small food vendor without a name or a business card.  I'll keep an eye out for them in the future, and perhaps I can actually find out who they are, and update this story.  In the meantime, I'll search for more hot dogs in Roseville!
