At the height of the 1950′s, life was beautiful – men smoked cigarettes without caution, women wore poodle skirts, the economy was bustlings and the cars were gorgeous. Drive-in restaurants were popular and so was Buddy Holly. Now we have drive thru’s and Kei$ha. Luckily some drive in’s still exist and not in the form of something like Sonic. While they have been updated and renovated, some of the original Swensons, born in Akron, Ohio in 1934, still exist. Their staff aren’t on roller skates, but they do move very fast and put together a great burger!
Besides having a pretty killer hot dog, which is locally sourced, Bark Hot Dogs has amazing environmental ethics. Sitting very low on the chain of fast food joints, this hot dog, french fry and hamburger joint prides itself on using compostable and reusable materials as well as farm fresh ingredients in the production of their food and encourages its patrons to join in. They provide compostable cups for free filtered water rather than suggesting you buy a $2 nonperishable water from them.
I’m not a big fan of recycling, i find it time consuming and not economically feasible. We should be moving towards a more sustainable society, eliminating and substituting compostable options. Bark has done just that and it makes paying 5 bucks for a hot dog worth it.
