It's nice to see Puerto Vallarta locals boasting about their friends' businesses regardless of actual quality but I think it is actually a disservice to the tourists. Recommending places that disappoint is a bad way to get people to return to our fair city. They only have so many days here. Why have them waste their time. The Dog House... More

The Dog House is so great!. They have the best variety of hot dogs in town and make there own condiments (you can also purchase). With 2 locations (day and evening) right in the heart of Old Town. The Dog House is a MUST!

Thanks so much for taking the time to do a review. We actually only have 1 location now which is the one open from 10pm to 6am in front of Paco's Ranch. We also have 5 different pizzas we are now offering from Encuentros, and made fresh at our location. Again thanks for the review. More

Although Vallarta is not known for it's hot dogs, perhaps it should be or will be soon. I stumbled onto The Dog House late one evening. After weeks of tacos and tamals, I was ready for a 'good ol' dog with all the fixin's'. I was not disappointed. I understand that The Dog House will soon serve small pizzas. It's... More

I was so happy to discover a hotdog stand that was open as late as the bars!! The chef Ana was very friendly and kept me laughing the entire time.

When you are in the modo for a dog, this is the best place i hace found in México. A local chef prepares the sausages, from basic meat dogs (which is almost impossible to find in Mexico; they are all chicken or turkey), and the great sausages, Polish, Brat, Italian, chicken And chorizo. I tried the brat with actual sauerkraut,... More

During my January (2013) trip, I did nor realize the Dog House had opened a second location during the day and it's original location at a disco for the night crowd. Only after 30 days on TripAdvisor, I am allowed to retract my previous suspicions of the Dog House demise. THE DOG HOUSE LIVES NOW IN TWO LOCATIONS AND WAS... More

Brat with grilled onion and kraut was very good ,but some nice hot fries would have made our day.We would go back to try other items on menu.With the tree down much easier to spot the sign.

The Hot Dog House in Old Town has quite an assortment to choose from. A "regular bacon wrapped" dog, 45 pesos or choose one of their other dogs. I had the chipotle sausage dog that was served with grilled onions, 55 pesos. DELICIOUS! German dog with sauerkraut? Several other choices. Small place, friendly staff....Try it, you'll like it. YUM!

Took my East Coast boyfriend here for dogs - he always said you can't get a good hotdog outside of New York City. WELL, we found several here. We shared a hot dog with sourkraut and mustard, bratworst with grilled peppers and onions and an Italian sausage with the works. My friend was amazed and sorry he had been dragging... More
