4. Swan Dogs, Gautier, MS

"0% Swan, 0% Dog, 100% Delicious.” Swan Dogs is a mobile food cart that has built its success on their all-beef Swan Dog. The Swan Dogs are so popular that owner Phil Swan has begun selling them by the case.

At the Velvet Cream you'll find way more than just hot dogs, but try to resist the temptation to order one of everything. Their dog prices are extremely reasonable, so feel free to add on an order of fries—but an order is so large you just might want to share it!
