My friend, Tom Smith, teases me all the time about my crazy obsession to find and eat the best hot dogs in Pittsburgh. I admit – hot dogs are my favorite food group – no lie there.
I’ve searched high and low in Washington and Allegheny County but with the current trend to healthier eating, a good hot dog is getting really hard to find. Imagine my joy when I walked into Dormont Dogs. OMG, how COOL is this place!
I’ve always loved Dormont where the streets are named after states and access to the city of Pittsburgh is just minutes away. But to find a restaurant in Dormont that specializes in hot dogs with a variety of toppings…this isn’t Dormont – this is heaven.
The ultra cool menu features dogs named after the Dormont streets – each with a different array of toppings. I tried the Texas Avenue dog with chili sauce, cheddar cheese, sour cream and fritos. Yum!! My husband tried the Arkansas Avenue dog with bacon, cheddar cheese, horseradish sauce and scallions. I want to try them all, about 15 varieties, except possibly the Plain Jane.
It’s okay – even healthy eaters can find something to enjoy at Dormont Dogs. They serve all beef Sabrett dogs & vegan dogs, along with veggie chili and a variety of side dishes. And don’t be thinking you’re too good for the lowly hot dog. Captain Barnes, who with his wife, Rachel, owns Dormont Dogs, was the executive chef at Sonoma Grille and is French trained! Crazy!
First Time Home Buyers – here’s your challenge: Email or text me if you know of another place in Pittsburgh/Washington to get a great hot dog.
