The Hot Dog ‘Joint’
JJ’s Red Hots has now been crafting amazing hot dog flavors in Charlotte for 7 years, and has managed to create such a bond in the area that it seems as though JJ’s has been a staple in the community much longer. This self-described hot dog ‘joint’ serves up unbeatable char-grilled hot dogs and house-made sausages. The people of Charlotte wouldn’t have this no-frills spot any other way. Since 2012, it has served the community well over 1 million hot dogs.
Through priding itself on quality, service and value, and keeping it old school, JJ’s Red Hots considers serving its customers a privilege, and its customers, in return, recognize the importance of what JJ’s is serving up.
Also, take advantage of the specials JJ’s has each week: JJ’s Red Hots’ Dilworth and Ballantyne locations offer $2 hot dogs after 3 p.m. on Tuesdays, and kids eat free on Wednesdays. JJ’s Uptown location offers $2 hot dogs and $4 tall boys after 3 p.m. on Tuesdays.
