Secret Diners: Matt’s Red Hots in San Carlos

Yes, you heard that right.

Well, it’s more of shells and cheese, but I digress.

There was bacon too; oh, how I adore the meaty goodness of the cured pig gods.

A bacon mac and cheese hot dog might not be for everybody. You can instead opt for a hamburger, footlong dog, chicken sandwich, hand cut fries, onion rings, chili cheese fries, Royal Scoop ice cream — ok, you get the point.

All this goes down at Matt’s Red Hots in San Carlos. And judging by the increasing amount of tags on Instagram, people are starting to find this spot as well. I mean, a picture of that bacon macaroni and cheese hot dog steered me to the establishment in the first place.

Matt’s is a place to grab a quick bite on-the-go while in the South Fort Myers area. You can also dine-in. According to a cashier, the line at Matt’s is usually out the door. I showed up right when the doors opened on a Tuesday before noon.

I don’t have to explain what a hot dog with bacon and mac entails.

Eat one, or don’t.

It’s probably my new guilty pleasure food.
