Quarter pound hotdogs with too many topping to name. They also have veggie dogs. The tutor tots are crisp on the outside any fluffy. They also come with over 20 dipping sauces. To keep my girli figure, I just order the hot dog with out...the bun and load up the toppings. Live music often.More

Decided to stop here after visiting The Christmas Story House and were glad we did. The sweet potato and the regular fries were delicious and the hot dogs and toppings had so many different and unique options!

An old school bar that serves mean dogs - what's not to love? If you sat on your grandpa's knee at the bar as a kid - you oughta go in and check this place out. Service was friendly, too (even though we're GenXers at...was appears as more of millennial hang out).More

We were looking for the best hot dog in Cleveland. Found it at Happy Dog. Family, It’s a family eatery bar, Saturday afternoon people from 1 year to 75 eating. Strollers to Wheelchairs. Great tatertots and the best dogs in CLEVELAND

We really loved getting to choose all minds of crazy toppings for our food. The prices were not unreasonable either.

The only reason it doesn’t get 5 stars is because the music was obnoxiously loud when there were hardly any people there and the booths were rather low compared to the table. Otherwise the food was magnificent! Great flavor and plenty of fun options! I’m...a vegetarian and their meatless dog was terrific. Not sure how the picture will be cropped but it’s the veggie dog, regular dog, regular fries, and sweet potato fries.More

if you are into hot dogs - this is your place. you can get your dog with virtually anything on it, and i do mean almost anything. as for me - hard to beat some kraut, onions and mustard!

My wife and I ate here during a stay in Cleveland. We always try to find local places when we travel instead of the same crappy chains. Honestly when you pull up you question the area just a tad lol, but it was worth it....They have this cool way of ordering. You walk in, grab a Pad with their menu and fill it out. You just check the boxes you want. They have a bunch of sauces and you can get as many to try as you want. I had a beef dog with pulled pork nacho cheese and homemade chili on top. Tots with three different sauces. A really cool place. The service was great as well.More
