little Indiana is in the Dawg House Diner in Greensburg, Indiana–and lovin’ it!

If you thought that a hot dog is nothing more than a bun and beef frank, prepare to be wowed by this Decatur County diner.

As the owner says, it’s “Where the only time being in the Dawg House is a good thing!” I can’t help but agree. It certainly is good!

Hip and fun, it’s a gleaming 50′s style hang-out. Black and white tiles, exposed brick, and a retro counter add to the fun. Hilarious comics dot the walls. They deliver to folks in this Indiana town and even serve beer. The free Wi-Fi is just a nice little bonus!

But the giant menu with 25 different styles of hot dogs on it certainly takes center stage! However would little Indiana choose?

My husband, Jeremy, decided instantly: Guacamole Hot Dog with a side of chips. Kid #1 got a cheese dog and I? Well, let’s take a look at what I could have ordered! There’s the Tex-Mex Dog, a Coney Hot Dog, the Sombrero Dog, and the spicy Firehouse Dawg. There’s  also 25 dogs on the menu! But then I saw it…

If you’ve been following along in little Indiana for awhile, then you know how much I like a good Reuben sandwich. The Dawg House had a Reuben Hot Dog! My Reuben Dog, or Dawg as they spell it, was the best hot dog I have ever eaten. Swiss cheese, thousand island, and sauerkraut on an all-beef frank. Delicious! Who would have thought?

My husband was in love with his Guacamole Dog. He agreed–it was the best hot dog that HE’S ever had.

Feeling adventurous? Finish a 22 lb hot dog with the works and win a t-shirt! Did I try? No way– but I might have a chance if we can make it a Reuben Dog!

    That Reuben Dog was something else! Thanks for stopping by. :)

  2. This place is amazing! Always fun, good food, and the owner, Mike, is a blast! Highly reccomend to anyone coming through or around the area!

  3. I am so disappointed that you were in Greensburg and we didn’t get to give you the full tour. Would you be interested in another trip? We need to take you to Stories, to Highpoint Orchard, take the short drive to the Damm Theatre and check out the Ertel Cellars Winery. Please say you’ll come back!
