Langlois Market | Langlois, OR

Nestled along the 101 freeway on the Oregon coast, Langlois Market has developed quite a name for itself. How? I'll get to that in a minute. But, first, let me say that where the market lacks in size and space, its owners certainly make it up in hospitality. Big welcomes await anyone who walks through their doors no matter if you are a weary traveler or a regular patron. Beer, wine, sodas, snack foods, breads, dairy, and some chosen meats can all be found here. But, what sets it aside from other neighborhood markets is its in-store kitchen where they serve up some of the finest hot and cold sandwiches, burgers, french fries, and seasonal soups in the area.

What really had the people lined up at the counter, and what has defined the market's reputation, is their world famous hot dogs, made plump and juicy with just the right amount of spices. Rumor has it that one time "the energy minister for Indonesia visited and had a hot dog. He loved them so much, he had a bunch shipped back to Indonesia for others to enjoy."

So, eat 'em plain or
doctor 'em up with chili, cheese, sliced tomatoes, or crispy lettuce. The choice is yours. If you ask me, however, order 'em with a quick slathering of Langlois Market's own homemade sweet 'n tangy mustard. You won't be sorry.
