Sweet Auburn Curb Market is a veritable treasure trove of deliciousness – from fresh produce, meat and seafood to baked good, flowers, and a diverse selection of restaurants, it’s no wonder the market thrives.
The newest kid on the block is brought to you by the innovator that introduced Atlanta to its first food truck, Yumbii, and helped spearhead the city’s food truck movement – and they’d like you to come down to YumDiggity.
YumDiggity is more than just a hot dog counter – with a promising slogan (“Home of the Gourmet Frank”), YumDiggity offers a variety of franks, brats and sausages all free of MSG, fillers, artificial flavors and animal by-products.
Not being a hot dog fan myself, I admit I was a wee bit skeptical. However, I come from a household that adores hot dogs (my dad and brother are huge hot dog fans, my husband went through a period of eating a dog a day, and my mother’s hot dog casserole had it’s glory days in the late 1970s), so I felt a responsibility to give it a try. That, and I the gracious folks at YumDiggity had invited me for lunch – how could I say no?
Immediately on arrival, I realized that this is not just a place for die-hard hot dog lovers. If you’re a little hot dog shy (like me), there are a couple of choices that will appeal. There are, of course, the usual suspects: the All-Beef Franks for you traditional hot dog lovers. There are also the Hotlanta Red Hot Franks, Beer Brats, Beer and Cheddar Brats, German Brats, Spicy Italian Sausage, Spicy Chicken Sausage, Beef Polish Sausage, and even Veggie Franks to satisfy the non-carnivores who may wander by.
The Build-Your-Own-Frank offers toppings including including fresh relish, gourmet mustards, collard greens, sport peppers and Cheese Whiz (which will make my dad especially happy!). For my dog (pictured above), I chose the Spicy Chicken Sausage and topped with with caramelized collard greens and brown mustard. The collard greens were a very happy surprise – flavorful with a hint of sweetness – and they complimented the slight spiciness of the chicken sausage well. (Alas, non-meat-eaters, these collards are not a vegetarian preparation.) With no lack of side items to complete your meal – I recommend the onion rings, which are ginormous – I think you’ll find that yum’s the word at YumDiggity!

Full disclosure: YumDiggity graciously hosted me for lunch and my bill was comped by the house. However, all opinions expressed here are my own.
