The California Capital Airshow is held the first weekend every October, and celebrates the rich aviation heritage the greater Sacramento area is known for.  It's a family-friendly event that offers something for everyone, especially is you like airshows and airplanes.  Airplanes need fuel, and so do aviation enthusiasts, and the gala event supports various food vendors, including Jumbo Hot Dogs, a food event hosted by the American Legion Folsom Post #362.

As with all of reviews that I publish, I have no affiliation with the restaurant reviewed, and there is no monetary gain on my part, as I am simply a person who likes to eat, and I love to write-up, and publish my dining experiences.

Photo:  It's just about 11:00 o'clock in the morning, on Saturday, October 01, 2022, and I'm enjoying the California Capital Airshow, and it's time to enjoy a "Jumbo Hot Dog," at Jumbo Hot Dogs, which sets up their pop-up restaurant every year for this event.

Photo:  The menu is "compact," to say the least, as it offers hot dogs, chips, water and soda.  Jumbo Hot Dogs is staffed by the great people at American Legion, Folsom Post 362.

Photo:  I catch the talented hot dog chefs, working their magic at the grill, which was located outside, in back of the restaurant.  The hot dogs are grilled using propane as a fuel.

Photo:  The friendly staff hands me a hot dog, which was already pre-made, and ready for me to enjoy.

Photo:  I'm a happy guy as I hold my "Jumbo Hot Dog," which will be great for an early lunch on this late Saturday morning on the first day of October.

Photo:  After picking up my dog, the next stop was the condiment bar, which offered pre-packaged mayonnaise, sweet relish, mustard, ketchup, along with lots of napkins.

Photo:  I went with the "Jumbo Hot Dog," which is listed at the top of the menu, and is the signature dog the restaurant offers.

The dog was a quarter pound hot dog, with natural casing, so it "snapped" when I bit into it.  I'm guess the dog was an "Alpine dog," which is a Sacramento area distributor of hot dogs, and other fine meat products.  The dog was grilled to perfection and arrived with grill marks, thanks to the talent of the hot dog chefs.

The dog was placed on a regular sized bun, the kind you purchase in your supermarket, which made the dog look "jumbo" as the bun was just a plain ol' supermarket variety bun.  I added mustard, mayonnaise and sweet relish, as the dog came "undressed," from the grill.

Thanks to the natural casing, I was rewarded with a "snap" as I bit into the dog, along with lots of great flavor that comes with a hot dog, that's perfectly grilled.  The bun was fresh, and the condiments enhanced, but didn't over power the juicy dog.

Photo:  I've dressed my "Jumbo Hot Dog" with mustard, mayonnaise and sweet relish, and I'm looking forward to taking my first bite into this delicious hot dog.  Hot dogs and air shows certainly work well together!

The dogs are good, perfectly grilled, the staff is as friendly as it gets, and the atmosphere is pure aviation excitement.  Get your hot dog "fix" as you enjoy the airshow, at Jumbo Hot Dogs, located near the center of the event, next to the Beer Garden.
