Snag Stand

Cnr Latrobe And Swanston St
Melbourne, VIC 3000
02 9639 6544

I apologise if this post just about looks like a hot dog advertisement. The bright bursts of yellow just made everything look so pretty! I must’ve looked like a buffoon running allover the place, trying to snag this joint with my camera, and I swear the girl at the counter nearly rolled her eyes at my antics, but I liked what came out in the end!

My friends and I drove into the city just to chow on these dogs one Sunday evening. We tried the American Classic, Chillidog, and the Spicy Spanish Chorizo. Just when you think that’s indulgent enough as it is, all of the dogs were served on buttery brioche buns…


The Chillidog tasted the best, but I’m keen to try the German Bratwurst next time, it was sold out that night.

Chillidog $8.90
All natural frankfurter w/ chilli beef sauce, onions, cheddar cheese & roasted chilli peppers on a toasted brioche roll.

American Classic $6.90

Wood smoked frankfurter w/ American yellow mustard, tomato sauce, onions & sweet relish on a toasted brioche roll.

Mmmmmm….. YUMMY!!!!


Spicy Spanish Chorizo $9.90

Grilled w/ semi sun-dried tomatoes, chipotle mayo, baby rocket & shredded Spanish goats cheese on a toasted brioche roll.

    Oooh, they toast the buns! And there's goats cheese! Woooooo!

    P.S. The shot with the couple in blue amidst all the yellow truly looks like a magazine ad. Bravo!

    Thanks, Hannah. Actually I didn't really like that Spanish Chorizo one and I think it's because of the goats cheeeeese. :)

    Snag Stand was recommended to me late last year by a gentleman who works in the meat industry.

    Looks like it could be another place to add to my already long wishlist .

    Will have to make more of an effort to get mself into the city.

    Yes! I remember the website says it started in Syd.

    I don't like hot dogs in general but they're quite nice here.

    Not too sure what I think of this place – being set up at the intersection of Swanston makes it feel like a chain. Before I make comment I have to check out Massive Wieners just off Chapel St to see how they compare.

    But great photos!

    I love the pops of yellow as well – so fun. And the snags look good as well…

    At the moment it's the only one in Melb, the 1st store is in a Sydney mall I think. I wonder if there'll be more? I'm similar to you, once I know it's chain-ish, I go a little "euugh"… haha!

    Ooh yes, try it out and let me know how it compares to the states. When I was in NYC, my friend introduced me to such a place w hot dogs, (apparently famous), but the sauerkraut was sooo very salty sour that I could not enjoy it at all…!

    Ohhh that's a shame :( Sometimes i don't get why some places are even famous when their food really isn't that great ~
