“According to the (not so) official Freebie Calendar of made-up food holidays, the third Wednesday in July is always National Hot Dog Day.” – Brad Tuttle, Money.com
Offering everything from traditional dogs, bratwurst and corn dogs to fresh-squeezed lemonade, homemade chips and fried apple pies, you don’t want to miss out on eating at Dog Et Al. Located at 1456 S. Monroe Street (on the cusp of downtown), this local favorite has been serving dogs 10,230 different ways for more than 33 years!
Just down the street in Gaines Street District, housed within a purple building is Voodoo Dog. While eating here, venture well beyond the traditional dog and try one of the many funky combos including a Tijuana Dog (bacon-wrapped dog w/ guacamole & sour cream), Philly Dog (regular dog with sautéed onions, peppers and provolone cheese) or Hari Kari (bacon-wrapped dog with pineapple, teriyaki and chives), just to name a few.
Oh . . . and don’t limit your hot dog eating in the Capital City to just National Hot Dog Day, there’s far too many good options waiting!
