No one can leave Dat Dog unhappy. The sprawling stand is painted in primary hues, as if the work had been outsourced to a talented kindergarten class, and the Hawaii shirt–clad staff bustles about with the enthusiasm of amateur actors staging a musical. The menu is all about hot dogs, and frank options range from standard German wieners to Louisiana alligator sausages. Even fish eaters and vegetarians have options. The long list of toppings includes guacamole, wasabi,
and andouille sauce. Can't decide? Let the kitchen surprise you. And what goes better with a brat than an ice-cold brew? Luckily, the menu offers an exhaustive list of domestic and international beers. There's also a Dat Dog location in Uptown at 3336 Magazine Street.
