BELLEVUE, Neb. (KMTV) — True hot dog enthusiasts know dogs can be more than just ketchup and mustard. At B&B Classic Dogs in Bellevue, they take that to the extreme serving a variety of style dogs.
From ingredients such as mac'n cheese, baked beans, bacon, and even peanut butter, the Bellevue joint prides itself on its creativity.
"We used to have over 25 type of hot dogs on our menu at one point," said owner Diane Bruce, who opened the restaurant in 2013. "It got a bit extensive so we've cut it back some but our hot dogs are pretty unique to our place and we use creations and ideas from our staff and customers."
During the College World Series in June, Bruce's menu grows by eight new hot dogs, one for each of the eight teams competing in the CWS.
Bruce assigns a team to each of her staff members, who are then tasked with creating a hot dog for that team with a flavor or ingredient from the team's area or city. The employee who designs the best-selling dog will earn a gift card.
"It definitely gets the competitive spirit going here," said Bruce. "We've been doing it since we opened and for three years, the hot dog that won the contest here won the CWS."
This year's CWS teams include Vanderbilt, Florida State, Arkansas, Louisville, Texas Tech, Mississippi State, Michigan and Auburn.
The hot dogs for this year are:
ARKANSAS: 'The OmaHog Dog'
