Good Morning

Oh, the hot dog. Other than pizza, is there a better food to eat shamelessly? Crif Dogs, with its two respective locations in the East Village and Williamsburg, specializes in making you think it’s a good idea to take a bunch of crap, put it on a piece of meat, and shove it down your gullet. On a recent visit, I enjoyed the Good Morning, a treat that embraced the joys of breakfast food. Wrapped in bacon, cheese, and a fried egg, it’s definitely not a light meal. But pair that with a $3 PBR, some tater tots, and a beautiful date, and it’s a fun spot to throw all foodie-aspirations out the window, and just eat some good ol’ disgusting (but in the best way) American food.
