The Shoestring’s hot dogs are “all beef, natural skin casing, and snap when you bite into them,” said owner Debbie Harding. “They’re all good, but one of our best sellers is the chili cheese dog.” Add chili cheese fries and the mouth-watering meal is complete. When watching customers, their enjoyment is obvious. “We hear their approval with a smile and an ‘Mmm,’” Harding said. “We use the finest ingredients, we don’t skimp at all.” The delectable hot dogs, along with burgers and milk shakes, can be found on Broadway next to the Gold Country Inn in Placerville, 11 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday through Saturday, till 7 p.m. on Sunday.
