WILMINGTON – While you are out last minute Christmas shopping or shopping at any time, and hunger pangs hit, Diggity Dogs Carry-Out Restaurant is open and ready to serve you a variety of hot dogs with many choices of toppings. Diggity Dogs is located in the Austin Commons Shopping Center on Carolina Beach Road.
Owners and operators David and Diane Curry, moved to the area in 2007. Originally from Maryland, they moved here from Nevada where they lived for almost 10 years. They decided to open the restaurant in the Monkey Junction area and to offer a good, inexpensive meal to the area people.
The Currys offer several sizes of Hebrew National All Beef Kosher hot dogs and a 9-ounce Angus beef hot dog, along with vegetarian and turkey dogs upon request. There are also the regular condiments to slather on the dogs, but, they also have several toppings, such as, homemade chili, several kinds of salsa, dill pickle slices, barbecue habanera sauce, minced or shredded cole slaw, baked beans, jalapeno peppers or cubes, and many more toppings.
There are Specialty Dogs, like the Ultimate Raven which is a jumbo Hebrew National dog with chili, cheese, onions, mustard and a hint of Old Bay; Windy City is a jumbo dog with mustard, 1000 Island dressing, dill pickle and onions; and the Blazin Flamin’ 777 which is a jumbo dog topped with barbecue Habanera, Chipotle hot sauce, jalapenos and spicy mustard.
The Tex-Mex dog is a Hebrew National day split and wrapped in a soft tortilla shell and stuffed with fresh homemade salsa, melted cheese and chili. You will also find on the menu several nacho choices, side dishes like pork and beans, cole slaw, three bean salad and pickles.
They also serve lunch specials, Italian sausage sweet or spicy with peppers, onions and hots, barbecue pulled pork butt sandwich, a 9-ounce Angus beef dog, to name a few.
David stated the Diane is a great cook and she is always coming up with something new to top the hot dog with or to add to the menu. They are open to any suggestions.
