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!
