    Hand-dipped Corn Dogs for $2.50 at the top of Snoqualmie Pass. Perfect for the return trip.

    Over priced. Costco hot dogs for almost half the price including a drink has this beat. Don't even get me started on your condiment choice.

    Yeah, ketchup on a hotdog should be illegal! In the words of Dirty Harry, "Nobody and I mean Nobody puts ketchup on a hotdog!" The corn dog does look good though.

    While unacceptable on bratwurst or other fine sausages, ketchup is certainly not out of place on a corn dog or hot dog.

    That depends on what part of the nation you're from... I believe it may be an actual crime in Chicago, but it's kosher on the west coast and NYC.

    And I'd totally take a hand dipped corn dog over a Costco dog. Costco dogs are good, but they aren't good road trip food.

    Is there even room for ketchup on a Chicago dog? Who needs it on that? That would be like doling out the sweet red stuff on a Comet dog with grilled onions and cream cheese. WHY?

    Costco dog is superior? Puhleese!!! The corn dogs at the pass are hand dipped to to order. The fryer is set to the perfect conditions to deliver a corn dog experience that makes my freaking mind implode. If you think that's rain coming down on you as you head west over the pass you would be incorrect, for it is God weeping in Heaven at the beauty and perfection of these corn dogs wrought by mortal hands. As for the ketchup, I will give Leland a pass since he is the one who turned me on to Snoqualmie Pass Corn dogs... Their huckleberry shake is not to be missed either, also hand dipped!

    About the only time I put ketchup on a hot dog is when there are some left over and I eat them cold as a sambich. Other that that it's Mustard and nothing else. You have to be sick to put ketchup on a hot hotdog.

    How can any red blooded American disparage the 1.50 Costco dog plus drink? Plus all the relish, onions, catsup mustard you desire. And The bun is soft like a pillow made by angels.

    I smell a spy lol

    If you're going through the Pass, and you're hungry, or not, and don't stop at Mountain High and get a Mt St Helen's, well, shame on you...

    Many years ago, when I was a gear slinging son of a gun, we use to stop at the Texaco station on Hwy 12 on the way back from Blue Creek. They either had the best GD corn dogs and Jo-jo's west of the Mississippi River or we were simply ravenous hungry...no, they were simply awesome. Those could make a cold, shitty day of winter steelheading feel like a warm blanket...fun times!

    Tyler's right, in fact, I have it on sterling authority that they check you at the borders of those states which comprise the upper midwest, to see if you're hauling contraband. Lipton onion soup mix, Jello, Cool Whip, catsup, salt&pepper, and Gulden's mustard are the permitted spices. And cheeze whiz!!

    I gained 15 pounds at my grandfather's funeral in Michigan, eating upper Midwest style. Butter on ground baloney sandwiches, green olive smothered hamburgers, white bread, and shit-loads of cakes. I was a competitive swimmer at the time, and promptly quit thereafter.

    Gotta jump on the bandwagon, putting ketchsup on a dog is a disgrace (kinda like putting mayo on a hamburger). You should be ashamed of yourself. Knew a guy who put ketchsup on a dog once and he didn't catch a steelhead for two years, wise up!

    I contend that a hot dog and a corn dog are two different entities. I never ruin hot dogs with ketchup but I do enhance corn dogs with a half and half mixture of both.

    the costco dogs are shit. the buns are wrong, the dimensions of the dog are wrong, it's not even worth the puny price they charge. i don't really care what people like on their hot dogs, (and i don't like it on anything) but ketchup there beats ketchup on eggs - a truly vile but surprisingly common culinary abomination.

    Now hold on just a cotton pickin' Yankee minute. Ketchup is required on scrambled eggs--you mix it with the Tabasco Sauce. and pepper. Lots of pepper. And Jim's right on about that mayo crap, too. Stuff oughta be outlawed. Hell, they load it on chilli dogs in the South. And on bar-b-que. Surprised they don't put it in their mint juleps. Which, come to think of it, Cajuns would add Tabasco to.

    Today I learned many socialists and or communists have infiltrated the land of the free. Ketchup is America. You don't like ketchup? You don't like FREEDOM!

    Wholly crap, all the guy did was point out an eatery on the way over the pass. The food police want to criticize? Eat 'em how you want 'em. Prefer Costco dogs? Good for you but I've never found the Snoqualmie Pass Costco.
