The White Dotte is a strange mix.  I had eaten there once before.  This time, I was on my way back from my brother’s and stopped in for a quick bite.  This place is the definition of that.  Burgers, hotdogs, cheesesteaks and custard—  All done really well.  I remember their fries being the tits, but unfortunately I was two dollars short for fries.  I just got a cheesesteak hoagie.  That’s my go-to sandwich.  White Dotte did it right!  Yummy tomatoes, fresh lettuce, quality meat and spices—  Pure yumminess.

You stand up to order your food, then you sit at a booth and they bring it to you.  It makes me torn about the tipping situation.  Do I tip the server?  I mean, I had to stand up to order.  Should I just go and eat in my car?  I kinda regretted sitting inside, but it was raining.

The downside is, they have a porta-potty out back, which I had to use.  The server told me it had a sink.  It did, but it didn’t work.  After I soaped my hands, I had nothing to wash them with.  I ended up wiping my hands on napkins.  When I got back to my seat, the server was throwing away my iced tea.  I stopped him.  It was weird.  I had literally just ordered and asked him where the bathroom was.  Guess he was out of it.  I finished my soapy tasting cheesesteak.  He offered me hand sanitizer, but that would’ve made my hands smell even worse.  A weird day.

That’s not even the weirdest part about the White Dotte.  It shares its space with a small electronics store.  I have no idea why and that part was closed.  Plus it was Sunday and no one working there looked over 20.  Still, awesome sandwich.  Would go again, with clean hands.

I give the White Dotte 7 out of 10 keggers.  Worth a stop.
