The DMV dog will destroy your life
Looking for the authentic DMV food experience, all shoved together inside the friendly confines of a hot dog bun? Presenting the DMV dog at Nats Park: a treat for the culinary masochist deep inside your gut.
The concoction starts with a footlong half smoke, a food staple of the District, often associated with Ben’s Chili Bowl. From there, it is “smothered with Maryland crab cheese,” taking it in a similar direction to Baltimore’s heralded Crab Mac and Cheese dog. But then it jumps off the deep end.
As a coup de gras (yes, the strike of grease), the offering is topped with Virginia ham, because why not.
Behold, the elusive beast, for all to see. Warning: just looking at it may make your heart hurt.
