Maybe try try one time to find out what the fuzz was all about. But with the price, I won't be back for more. Taste was so-so. Tried it at the MacArthur Glen outlet.

... however, I fully approve. The tempura hot dog was absolutely delicious, especially after being topped with some wasabi mayo. Definitely a worthy place for a quick lunch on the go (via food truck). The staff are super friendly and fun. Will be back!

Before I tasted Japadog, I could not imagine how Japanese food could stay Japanese if it was searched on a bun and boy oh boy, what a pleasant surprise! I could never have enough of Japadog!

Great tasting fusion hotdog. Many different flavors and dogs. Had to wait a bit, since it's probably popular...

I tried it out for the novelty of the food item. I ordered the basic hotdog and remember it being good. But I will still buy my hotdog from a regular vendor and load it with sauerkraut and mustard for less cost

Enjoyable little place with tasty dogs with unique toppings you don't find anywhere else. The place gets packed, but the service is pretty quick considering. Some items were sold out when we went, but most items were available. Perfect cheap place for a quick bite. Definitely worth the stop.

A refreshing change and Japanese fusion of the standard old hotdog. Lot of umami tastes and friendly cart staff.

This little place is always packed with people. The dogs are done in a couple of minutes and are delicious. Probably best to have your food to go as there is never anywhere to sit inside.

Make no mistake, these are not the hot dogs you grew up eating. Toppings include avocado, seaweed, and mayo. So, if you're looking for a "regular" hot dog, I would probably go elsewhere. Then again, why not live a little? Though four months after having traveled there, I can't remember exactly what it was that I ordered, I do remember... More

Great dogs with unique Japanese toppings for them, or you can get them like you're use to as well back home. Also tried Poutine there for the first time, and it wasn't the last either. Small little place and you'll fight for seats during busy lunch time.
