Rec Room Cordele, Ga. on the Hot Dog Tour
Join my husband, Stacy and I as we enjoy the best local hot dogs on our journeys! Do you have a favorite local hot dog place? We are not world travelers. Truth is, we don’t stray too far from the deep south. But no matter how far we roam, we look for the local hot dog joint! Tell us where your favorite local hot dog place is and we may just drop in! Visit our Hot Dog Tour page to see where we have been.
Our tour stops today at The Rec Room in Cordele Georgia also known as ‘the pool room’.
We stopped in Cordele on our way to ride the Sam Shortline last year on a Christmas journey to Plains, Ga. which is the home of former President Jimmy Carter. You can read about our train ride here. We will definitely be riding the Sam Shortline again!
If you are thinking that the Cordele Rec Room, or Rec Room as the locals say, looks a bit like a ‘beer joint’, you may be right. At first glance, my thoughts went back to my Momma saying not to go into places like that. We have friends who live in the area who recommended the hot dogs from the Rec Room though so through the door we went. It wasn’t so bad. There are some pool tables inside but mostly just folks eating hot dogs.
- Chips are single serve.
- Cola’s are in the bottle.
- Slaw is not a choice
- They won’t win any awards for ambience.
The folks keep coming for the ‘dogs’ though! They even have a walk up window out front for those who do not wish to come inside and it has a steady stream of visitors.
The Rec Room is located in downtown Cordele which is located just south of the middle Georgia area. You could slip out of the I-75 traffic and be at the Rec Room in minutes!
Let’s talk about their hot dogs!
The chili is what makes the ‘dog’ at the Rec Room. Unfortunately they boil their wieners *gasp*. Boiled is our least favorite way to enjoy a good hot dog. That being said, we would likely stop in again when we go back to ride the Sam Shortline.
Do you prefer your hot dogs boiled, fried or grilled?
