The Georgia dog must be the country in the cuacases. I've lived in the southern American state with that name and never seen that abomination

It's not that I doubted? It's that I figured such a creation couldn't have emerged fully grown from the head of Zeus. So I checked my go-to "I know fuckall about the South" reference Garden & Gun, which has exactly one hot dog recipe which notably (1) is two recipes (2) neither of which have hot dogs in them, despite (3) the food stylist's insistence and (4) is pinned on Appalachia, not Georgia anyway. Apropos of nothing,

    and the Sterling Drive-In in Welch, West Virginia, makes a deep-fried sub with chicken salad, cranberry sauce, and bacon as its filling. Really.

The Sterling Drive-In has seven yelp reviews, perhaps because Welch is a hamlet of under 3,000 people that could possibly be construed as being on the road between Lexington and Roanoke if you wanted to get there very slowly.

Having failed utterly I decided to google "Georgia 'hot dog'" which did in fact generate ample photographic evidence that such a creation has been made multiple times, albeit none that it has been eaten.

Apparently the blame rests at the feet of the Dinglewood Pharmacy in Columbus, GA.

This whole post reminded me of a restaurant in Athens that served Cuban sandwiches with sliced hot dogs on them. Sherman didn't go far enough

Yeah. Fuck Columbus. The Varsity is a disgusting Georgia institution and they just serve gross chilli dogs and slaw dogs.

That's not the one and only. There's one in dawsonville and a sad one behind a mall in Marietta that I'm not sure is even in business among others
