If you can dream it, Happy Fatz will probably put it on a hot dog.
Most Unique Toppings
Happy Fatz
Part bakery, part hot dog shop, Happy Fatz shouldn't work--but it does. All the hot dogs are 1/4-pound Hebrew National kosher beef, and they have a wonderful smoky flavor. It's the toppings and bread that really make these hot dogs shine, though. How 'bout Shiner Bock chili, hashbrowns, basil-garlic mayo, charro beans, white cheddar pimento cheese or olive tapenade? Instead of a regular bun, try a soft pretzel bun, a poppyseed bun, a jalapeño bun or even...a tortilla? Yeah, we haven't tried that one yet, but based on all the other hot dog iterations at Happy Fatz, we're sure it's grand.

All local ingredients in this hot dog.
Best Local Dog
Revival Market
For those locavores among us, Revival Market is the place for all your hot dog needs. All the meat Revival sells is locally raised, and it's all butchered, ground and cased in house. The frankfurter is a simple creation--an all beef hot dog in a buttery toasted bun with sauerkraut and mustard (reminder: that's New York style). For something a little more fun, try the Revival Dog, a Mangalitsa hot dog topped with chicharrones from the same Mangalitsa piggy as the hot dog itself. Nose to tail, baby.

Sammy's is a terrible imitation. Avoid it.

Hieghts General Store.... meat that's ground and seasoned in-house and served with a smile on a patio overlooking 19th street.

so you basically made up a category to get Good Dog on the list, because since it's in The Heights, it just HAS to be on the list doesn't it?

Good dog blows. Over priced and tiny ass little wieners!

@the_REAL_TimBlack Good Dog is in The Greater Heights Area, not "The Heights."  So they can sell you a beer without pretending they have a "club."  


Great dogs, too.   And thick milkshakes.
