DC-3 Shuttles Hot Dogs to the Hill
Gourmet wiener joint DC-3 is hoping to take a bigger bite of the congressional dining pie by rolling out delivery of its signature tube steaks to Capitol Hill.
The new service promises to connect hungry mouths in the halls of Congress with the nearly dozen well-dressed links heaped together on Barracks Row (423 Eighth St. SE) seven days a week. A minimum order of $15 is required — which works out to three stand-alone dogs, two combo meals (dog, chips, fountain drink) or four orders of deep-fried Oreos with a cotton candy chaser — and delivery is limited to a 1 mile radius of the restaurant.
Apart from the locally inspired half-smoke (which features the hybrid link, sweet relish, yellow mustard and raw onion), the restaurant tips its hat to regional delicacies including: the Philly Cheesesteak, fully sport peppered and dill pickled Chicago-style offerings, dueling chili-covered Coneys (NYC and Cincinnati) and the cole slaw slathered West Virginia dog.
