It isn't often that the Tri-Cities is put on a national stage, but Between The Buns in Kennewick recently came in 3rd place in a best national hot dog search put on by Esquire.

The top ten list includes hot dog restaurants and carts from all over the nation including Nathan's Famous in New York, well known for holding the annual National Hot Dog Eating Contest.

97 Rock wants to say congratulations to Between The Buns for being recognized on such a big scale!

Esquire Best Hot Dog Search

What began as a hot dog cart serving the famished and alcohol fueled patrons of downtown Kennewick, Between The Buns has become a favorite local restaurant located off of Clearwater Ave. Their menu lives up to their motto, 'Not your average weiner', serving up authentic and even counterfeit Chicago Style all-beef hot dogs to dogs piled high with any kind of fixin' you could imagine from veggies, cheese, and even more meat! Can you say bacon wrapped?! The Mac Daddy Dawg is where it's at.
