Cheap Eats

Big Bubba's Doghaus

This location is closed

By Erin Sullivan | Posted 6/9/2004

Home improvement is hard work, but it has its rewards. Your lawn is greener, your house is cheerier, you get to eat lots of hot dogs.

How do hot dogs fit into the picture? Take a look around the perimeter of your local Home Depot or Lowe's. Somewhere between the garden center and the entrance, there's always a hot dog stand. Mmmmm, hot dogs, covered in kraut or relish or onions, served on a mushy hot dog-stand bun, washed down with a sugary-sweet fresh-squeezed lemonade.

We happen to have a favorite hot dog stand in the region, and it's Big Bubba's Doghaus at the Catonsville Lowe's. They serve up the standard cart fare: regular hot dogs ($1.25), quarter-pound big boys ($2.50), Polish sausages ($2), and homemade lemonade and iced tea ($1.50-$2.50). You can order up a couple and sample the lawn furniture on display outside the Lowe's while you eat, or if you feel compelled to multitask, you can take your dogs shopping with you. The latter is our preferred method of dining at Lowe's because, if you have a hot dog in one hand and a soda in the other, it helps curb impulse buying. C'mon, do you really need that faux-copper dog silhouette cutout garden ornament? Enough to carry it with your feet?
