Lieutenant is pretty famous here! (Columbus, Georgia) There's a story that an army couple loved his scrambled dogs so much that they ordered a crate to be delivered to their wedding reception after they were transferred to a German base!  He was also featured in Southern Living once.  He's a pretty great guy to boot.

I found out what a scrambled dog was:
A hot dog that is sliced up and buried in chili then covered with cheese, onions, pickles and oyster crackers. Then you add some ketchup and mustard over the top if you wish.

Haven't had one of those, but it sounds better than the standard Georgia "hot dog with everything." Around here, if you order a dog or burger with everything, it will have cole slaw on it.
