My group searched for places to eat in Glendale and came across Dr Dawg which has a recommendation from Thrillist. What a treat we had. Each one in our group had a different item and each one reported it satisfied their tastebuds and just about right to fill their bellies. I loved the coleslaw and the bag of garlic fries.... More

Dr. Dawg is one of a kind! Nearly every item on the menu is so good, it's really difficult to choose. Top quality and care in creation of burgers and dogs to your specification - and even GF bread options for those who need/want it. Not inexpensive, but you get what you pay for.

Dr Dawg has brought the Chicago favorites, hot dog, Italian beef, polish sausage to Milwaukee along with a knock-out hamburger. I'm a regular and have tried them all. Their fries are as good as they get and their best kept secret is their Cole Slaw.

I love Chicago style hot dogs and Dr Dawg knows how to do them well! There are also burgers and other sandwiches on their menu, but the Chicago style dogs are what I go for. Food is made to order, so it is hot every time. Staff are friendly and helpful. Good food and casual atmosphere are what keep me... More

I went on my birthday and used a coupon. The staff was wonderful as was the food. I usually have a Chicago dog and it's very authentic. I've had other things in the past, which are equally as good,
