The Art of the Dog

Does the idea of a hot dog put a smile on your face? Does it remind you of happy times at a picnic, a ball park, or on vacation? Could an Irish Guinness sausage with andouille sauce, onions, shredded cheddar cheese, bacon and yellow mustard resurrect those positive vibes? Then you understand the reason Dat Dog was opened in a 475 sq. ft. shack in a post-Katrina New Orleans neighborhood on February 14th, 2011.

Dat Dog is a place where amazing and affordable food, fun-loving staff, and bright colors provide you with a sanctuary of joy from the moment you cross its threshold. Combining the soul of Louisiana with the sophistication of Europe, Dat Dog’s artfully crafted cuisine of Hot Dogs, sausages (including vegetarian, vegan and fish), burgers and chicken (fried, grilled or tossed in buffalo sauce) are a thing of beauty. The over 30 toppings available at no extra charge allow you to create your very own “jazz improvisation in a bun”.

Our happiness has spread to several more locations in New Orleans and elsewhere with beautiful balconies and sun-splashed beer gardens to enjoy one of our handcrafted beers or cocktails. So come, chill out and embrace your bliss!
