By Jelisa Castrodale - May 31, 2017

"The next stop was PB’s Takeout, which is undefeated in its hotdoggery: it has been our unanimous favorite for three straight years. The dogs are simple — no pretzel buns, no logos branded into the bread — but those buns are perfect. They’re buttered and toasted to the perfect crispness, and the entire combination of cash-only payment, picnic table seating and an unfussy hot dog is deeply satisfying. If I had to eat one hot dog for the rest of my life, it would be PB’s."

"When we all wiped our mouths for the last time and calculated our votes for the favorite, we were split between Skippy’s and PB’s, with one vote for Kermit’s."

Excellent Article Jelisa!

With the realization of that glaring hole in the local marketplace, I decided to pull one more invasive action in the Wiener Wars of Winston-Salem, pointing my car west towards PB’s Takeout, an old-school lunch counter with enough emphasis on hot dogs that an anthropomorphic frankfurter is painted on the white stucco outside the building.
PB’s harkens back to the era before the hyper-commercialization of cheap and fast eats, before the vertically aligned supply chain, Happy Meals and indoor playgrounds homogenized the industry.
It’s a little like a Dairy Queen, without the advertising and signature menu items, and upon entry I was heartened to see the grill man maneuvering hot dogs the color of actual meat on an ancient griddle, blackened by time.
Foregoing tradition — and because I had eaten more than three hot dogs that day — I ordered just a single dog, served up all the way in a small, red basket atop a sheet of wax paper.
I poked inside the bun to see the delightful charred skin, noted that the bun itself had been buttered and toasted. I took a third of it in the first bite and leaned back to chew.
It was remarkable: the well-cooked dog interplayed with the toasted bun; the chili was no mere sludge but had actual heat and meat going on, working with the cool slaw nicely.

 moreIs the 'Taste of Winston-Salem' Represented by Hot Dogs?

Ours is less of a unique style than a tradition that has endured while other food fads have come and gone.

J.S. Pulliam’s Barbecue has been in business for more than 100 years, and hot dogs, enthroned atop a toasted, buttery bun, are definitely the star. Serious hot dog afficianados writing for “Every Day with Rachael Ray” once named it the best hot dog in the South.

Not many cities can boast a hot dog business with as long a history as Pulliam’s, but it’s not the only one here that has endured.

Kermit’s Hot Dog House celebrated the half-century mark in 2016. The southside landmark arose in a different era, of course, when drive-ins were still popular, so getting a footlong with curb service made it a popular destination that has stood the test of time.

PB’s Takeout has offered hot dogs in its frills-free Ardmore location for decades, and often makes lists of the best hot dogs in town. And Dairi-O, which earned its reputation over decades in King, now has locations in and around Winston-Salem, bringing their popular hot dogs here.

It’s pretty clear though, that Winston-Salem is a minor-league city with major-league dogs.

The BEST Hot Dogs in Winston-Salem!

PB's Takeout has the BEST hot dogs in Winston-Salem. Besides the fact that they have won many awards for their hot dogs, once you take a bite of one for yourself, you'll certainly understand why. PB's is a little hole in the wall place that if you didn't know about their delicious food, you'd probably just keep on driving by. During lunch time, the place is usually packed. It isn't very big inside and the seating is limited. I usually just get my orders to go. The line moves very fast, so don't worry if you get there and it is coming out of the door. Try this place out if you haven't! It's GREAT!
