Choose from a veritable zoo of critters for your sausage at Sammy's.
Wildest Dog
Sammy's Wild Game Grill
On any given day, Sammy's Wild Game Grill will be offering a new and exotic sausage dog for your dining pleasure. From the pheasant with Cognac to the elk with apple and pear to the rabbit/venison combo, these sausages are not like grandma used to make. To ease into the exotic meats, try a buffalo and chipotle dog. It's rich and smoky, halfway between a burger and a traditional hot dog. Choose from a number of toppings and sauces, but beware: The ghost pepper sauce is the best, and it's likely to burn your tastebuds right off.

Why yes, I would like some wine in my hot dog, thank you.
Best Gourmet Dog
Moon Tower Inn
Like Sammy's, Moon Tower Inn focuses on wild game hot dogs cased with ingredients like marsala wine, blueberries or foie gras. Try a pheasant dog with spicy mustard or a duck foie gras dog on a crisp pretzel bun. Want something gamey-er? Try the lamb or elk hot dogs and top them with sambal for a little heat. Oh, and let's not forget the beer selection while we're here. Few things pair with a gourmet hot dog quite like a craft beer, and in both cases, Moon Tower Inn satisfies.

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.
