The Infield

Ever since I read about The Infield on Dig Lounge, it's been haunting my food pre-occupied mind. I am the girl who orders chili cheese hot dogs (although on this visit, I wasn't able to sample their version), so you can imagine how psyched I was to try this hot dog stand. Charles and our friend, Seve, were gracious enough to accompany me last Sunday afternoon.

A classic hot dog (for Charles) and The Daily Special (for me!): a hot dog (I think the New Yorker with red onion sauce), fries and a Coke. Due to the cash only policy, which I hadn't bothered looking into beforehand, we were limited on what we could order! Next time!

Fried Twinkies (for free via Twitter). Behold the powdered sugar.

Recognize. I liked this dessert much more than I thought I would. I'd venture to say the fried version is better because the outside has a delightful crunch to it.

I have to go back to try the following: nacho cheese fries, chili cheese Fritos and one of the hot dogs with sauerkraut (they've got a lot of hot dog creations). My follow-up visit will need to be sooner than later 'cause I'm not doing outdoor dining in the Valley summer heat (it will slay me)!

what? NO COMMENTS on how the twitter freebie was conspicuously absent?

TonyC: Well, at the time I wrote this post, I thought maybe I had somehow misunderstood the freebie conditions! I felt vindicated that Matt was denied too, but what can I say... The Infield seduced me with its extensive menu.

I didn't realize they still didn't take credit cards. When I first went a while ago, they had promised a credit card machine was on it's way. I should have mentioned that in my post. Sorry!

Robert apologized for the mix up but has yet to rectify it.

If you haven't tried it yet, I also recommend Earlez Grille for hotdogs on Crenshaw.

Diglounge: No worries, I would have gorged and probably been out of commission for the afternoon had I not been forced to show restraint! And Earlez Grille looks very interesting, thanks for the rec!

PK: Hi, thanks for stopping by! Yes, the fried twinkies were surprisingly delicious. I recommend them!
