DOG HAUS









10261 S. State Street
Sandy, UT 84070
(801) 987-3202


Originally from Pasadena, CA, the Dog Haus has made its way to Salt Lake City.  The dogs come on grilled King's Hawaiian rolls, which is a great start.  Eric and Susan ordered the Old Town Dog (bacon-wrapped dog with caramelized onions, pickled jalapen├▒os, chipotle aioli and cotija cheese), the Pig Lebowski (polish kielbasa, haus slaw, BBQ sauce and fries), and the Fonz (spicy Italian, pastrami, melted mozzarella).  The favorite was the Old Town Dog.

Eric: "More."

RED HOT






Red Hot Gourmet Hot Dogs and Burgers used to be at 165 Main Street in Salt Lake City.  They are now in Sugar House at 2236 S 1300 E.

Eric: I should have got the Chicago Dog.  Susan made the right choice.

SIEGFRIED'S DELICATESSEN (FARMER'S MARKET)





Siegfried’s Delicatessen is located at 20 W 200 S in Salt Lake City.  They have a more limited menu option when at the Farmers Market during the summer.

Eric: Always willing to get more of this in me.

BILLY'S GOURMET HOT DOGS


2445 Larimer St.
Denver, CO 80205




Billy’s Gourmet Hot Dogs was open in 2013.  It is still open.  Can’t remember what was ordered, but do remember that it was kinda worth ordering.

Eric: Will maybe eat here again.

Susan:

BIKER JIM'S GOURMET DOGS


2148 Larimer St.
Denver, CO 80205







Biker Jim’s was open in 2013.  It is still open.  Can’t remember what was ordered, but do remember that it was worth ordering.

KING WEENIE


226 S. College Ave.
Fort Collins, CO 80524
(970) 449-5008






King Weenie is a great place to eat, in theory.  Any hot dog that comes Sonoran style is a yes, but somehow even this was a no.

Eric: I wish this was better than it was.

Susan: 
**?**

GORILLA BITES


62 E. Gallivan Ave.
Salt Lake City, UT 84111







Gorilla Bites was open in 2013.  They served marginally good buffalo dogs.  The dogs were dry, but this does not matter, because the eatery does not exist anymore.

Eric: Dry

CHOW TRUCK






Salt Lake City's Charlie Chow's Dragon Grill has a mobile Chow Truck, where patrons can enjoy tacos, sliders, calamari, and Asian-spiced root chips.  The truck's location and schedule vary.  Occasionally it serves a Chicago Red hot dog on a toasted poppy seed bun, Asian slaw, Vietnamese sweet & spicy sauce & yuzu pickle for $5.   Susan, Eric and Melanie enjoyed one while sitting in the REI parking lot.


Eric: "I liked it, but also I want tofu tacos, too"
**5**

Susan: "This dog was great, but I wanted more sauciness.  I left craving Chinese food."

MOOCHIE'S MEATBALLS AND MORE!








232 800 S

Salt Lake City, UT 84111
(801) 596-1350


Moochie's has hot dogs, too.  It's name specifically says "meatballs and more!," so hot dogs fall squarely into the "more" category, along with macaroni & cheese, fried ravioli, and Tastykakes.  Most people get the Philly Cheesesteak or Meatball subs (sometimes with spicy Atomic jalape├▒o sauce).  But it's also not hard to believe that the hot dog is, like, really good, too.  Susan and Eric split a Moochie Dog: 1/4 lb fried hot dog, grilled pepperoni, dill pickles, red onions, special dill sauce, grilled onions, 2 slices of American cheese, and lettuce.

Eric: "I wish I had a whole one."
**5**

Susan: "THIS IS DELICIOUS.  One of the best I've had.  Guy Fieri totally let everyone down by not featuring this dog on Triple D, bro."
**5!**

CROWN BURGERS



377 E 200 S

alt Lake City, UT 84111
(801) 532-1155


Crown Burgers is not the place to go if you want a hot dog.  It is better to get a burger or Reuben or gyro.  The hot dogs are functional, but not that great.  Susan got a hot dog.  Eric got a chili dog.

Eric:  "It's a chili dog"
**5**

Susan: "It's a hot dog."

GOOD DOG GOURMET HOT DOG EMPORIUM















30 E. Broadway, #103
Salt Lake City, UT 84111


This might be closed now. Eric and Susan forgot to go back to try the others. Maybe they still can?

Islander (The "Dog of the Day"): spicy pineapple chutney, bacon mozzarella, green onions, Sriracha

Montana: Sabrett, baked beans, grilled onion, crushed potato chips, bacon

Apollo: Sabrett, Tzatziki, cucumber, Feta, tomato, celery salt

Chicago Dog: Nathan's Famous Kosher, sport peppers, mustard onion, tomato, pickle wedge, neon relish, celery salt


Eric: "I remember thinking this was a hard decision to make, but for some reason the dogs were not good enough to make me come back to try the others."
**5**

Susan: "How could something so unforgettable be somehow forgettable?"

MOON DOG'S CAFE






792 W. Hill Field Road
Layton, UT 84041
(801) 498-7256

We ate here after going to the dump in Layton last year.  It was okay.

Eric: "I barely remember this, but I remember liking it.  I think it was called a Bad Dogg?"
**5**

Susan: "Bad Dogg?  Good dogg."

T'PEDOS






Inside the Texaco In & Out Market 
7348 Union Park Ave.

"We sink hunger!" T'pedos has been in Salt Lake City since the beginning of 2014.  Steve, the owner, recommends the Coney or the Kitchen Sink dogs.  Eric ordered the Polish and Susan got the Kitchen Sink.  The dogs cannot be eaten without a fork and napkins.

Susan: "It was superb, good everything, and I loved the Krinkle cut fries with sauce.  The toppings overwhelmed the dog a little bit, but that's my fault for ordering the Kitchen Sink."
**5**

Eric: "It was like a Reuben, but with a hot dog."

BRUGES WAFFLES & FRITES


336 W 300 S
Salt Lake City, UT 84101
(801) 363-4444

http://www.brugeswaffles.com/main.php

"Bruges Waffles & Frites" is a "taste of Europe" in the "heart of Salt Lake City."  They offer a Machine Gun Sandwich, which is really just a hot dog with fries on top.  That's actually not true, it is a "hearty lamb merguez sausage served on fresh baguette, stuffed with our famous fries and topped Andalouse sauce."  It's expensive.  It took a very long time to get.  But it was worth the trip.

Susan: "I really liked the sauce and the fries.  And the bread.  And the sausage.  Viva la Belgium!"
**4.75**

Eric: "I liked this, but also I wish I knew the Freakandel existed, because I probably would have liked that, too.  Delicious!"
**5**

Larry: "Um, the Machine Gun unleashed a load in my mouth...what?"

J DAWGS




858 North 700 East
Provo, UT 84606

(801) 373-DAWG
www.jdawgs.com

Thier motto is "Mean Dawgs, Nice Buns."  Wow.  J Dawgs offers Polish or beef dogs, but the group only ordered Polish dogs.  All the dogs are criss-cross-cut, and Eric REALLY liked how that made them into bite-sized chunks. J Dawgs is known for its special sauce; J Dawgs is also overrated.  But pretty good.

Eric: "I love this.  Bite-sized chunks!"
**5**

Susan: "This dog was the culinary equivalent of Love Actually: everyone kept telling me how much I'd love it, and it was underwhelming, actually"
**3.75**

Danny: "Always delicious."
**5**

Larry: "Quite a mouthful."
