Jerry’s Wood-Fired Dogs
Jerry moved to the OC and found that the lack of great hot dog places really disturbed him. That’s why Jerry made it his mission to create the best hot dogs in the OC. Jerry learned how to wood grill perfectly, studied hot dogs from around the country and then took that knowledge and created Jerry’s Wood-Fired Dogs. There are over 30 toppings to choose from the normal to the abnormal.
