A New Place in Decatur That Has Hot Dogs

An open letter to hot dogs:

Dear Hot Dogs,

The people need you.

They miss your taste. They miss your laugh. Especially late at night.

Do the right thing.

Answering the call is Doggy Dogg, a new outdoor-only hot dog situation that was formerly based out of a cart and now isn’t, opening July 4 in Decatur.

It’s directly across the street from Kimball House in a tiny building made of cinder blocks and covered in murals of forlorn weenies hitchhiking or roasting smaller versions of themselves over cans of beans. Real twisted yet delicious sense of humor these franks have. See what we mean in this slideshow.

Let’s say it’s late (they’ll be open till 2am on the weekends) and you want something all-beef with pimento cheese and Spotted Trotter pork belly bits. You’ll step up to the window and request a 404. Or maybe you just want a veggie dog. In which case you’ll request what’s called a “veggie dog.”

And for now, you’ll enjoy your cased meats with something like a cold can of 420, but note that canned wine is also on the way.

You don’t have to drink it to note it.
