Great bar with a large selection of beer on tap and tasty all beef hot dogs options, (and vegan dogs for those who don't eat meat). Service is good and knowledgable about all types of beer. Hot dogs are fast to be made, and lots of interesting topping options to meet every palette, whether you are traditional (Chicago style with... More

You can't go wrong at The Red Hot. Amazing variety of beer and hot dogs. They have vegetarian and vegan dogs that are delicious. It gets packed quick so there is a chance of standing but well worth it.

Over 21 only. I had Hawaiian dog and my companion... More

Fun neighborhood bar/tavern. Good jazz vibe. Rustic decor with vintage beer memorabilia. About twenty hot dog/sausage selections. Lots of local beer on tap. Enjoyed "The Cowboy" sausage dog. Correct size poppy seed bun for dog. Thoroughly enjoyed. Will be back.

May be a funny headline, but since I've become pregnant I'm always thrilled to find something to take place of a beer when I'm in a place like this. Red Hot's root beer is brewed locally and is delicious. The dogs I've tried are: the Hound Dog, Hilltop, Rainier Reuben, Destiny City Slaw Dog, and Berliner. My all-time favorite has... More

I have to admit that I'm a hot dog lover. I always have a pack or two in the freezer. I'm sure its not healthy, but "what the heck". So, I had an opportunity to stop by The Red Hot this week and try them out. Their menu is almost exclusively hot dogs of all types, to include sausages. It's... More

A fine venue with an enormous beer selection (so no under 21's) and some interesting hit dogs- all beef. Also have a vegan dog which was very good.

This is a great stop for hot dogs and beer. My husband and I go there about once a week for a quick, inexpensive meal. They have a great beer selection that always changes so most likely every time you go there will be something new to try. The hot dogs are really good and maybe something you've never tried... More

We were thinking of something light, quick, affordable and nearby...found this one and it was a treat. Beer was very good and many hot dog preps on the menu to choose from. Our server was very friendly and helped us with choosing our "dogs". Fun!
