Jib Jab Hot Dog Shoppe (Hubbard, OH)
6965 Truck World Boulevard, Hubbard, OH 44425, T: 330-534-0296
Ever since I was a little boy I had a fascination for trucks, and for a long time I wanted to be a trucker. So, the combination of fast food and truckers is extremely seductive to me, even though it has often worked against me. Jib Jab Hot Dog Shoppe is a small shop in the Truckworld Mall, which serves… well, hot dogs.
I get a Texas Hot Dog ($2.35), which really is a large chili dog. Both the bun and the dog are large and ok, the chili isn’t remarkable. We also get the Trucker's Favorite ($6.87) – how can I resist? – which includes a Texas Hot Dog, a soup of the day, and a large soft drink. M. adds Sloppy Joe to the hot dog, which is chunky and fairly tasty. Unfortunately, within minutes the sweats and the runs hit me. Clearly, I do not have a trucker’s stomach.
Jib Jab serves hot dogs for truckers, which means quantity over quality, and price over hygiene.
