as the establishment with the finest hot dogs on Chalk Farm Road, last week we finally got round to testing out this wild accusation. Joe’s sits opposite the Roundhouse venue and burst onto the scene last year as a proper good, old dirty rock’n’roll pub; open late, great jukebox – with real music from the swinging 50’s to modern day classics, booze, cocktails and hot dogs to match.

Through the swinging doors and you’re in, the bar is straight in front, seats around the perimeter and toilets at the back. Done! At the bar you can see the little fellas sizzling away in front of you, look up and you have a very helpful little board explaining your options; Long and Lovely or Fat and Smokey’ I beg your pardon! No that wasn’t an estranged bearded fella with a polystyrene cup trying to sell us weed, it’s the hot dog menu…

We went for the Long and Lovey aka original served in a toasted bun with plenty of onions. Priced at £3.75 or £3 during ‘happy hour’ there’s nothing to fault here. We’d get one again and maybe even stop for a drink or two as the jukebox is pretty damn good.
