“Best hot dogs we ever had!”
Reviewed June 27, 2011

This place is unassuming from the street but their dogs are amazing. Prices are cheap and very filling. Toppings such as fried potatoes, arugula, and guacamole. Veggie dogs available too.

“Good Concept but Execution is disappointing.”
Reviewed May 1, 2011

The Dog is Hot has a really nice concept: offer a subway style buffet where you make hotdogs instead of sandwhiches which sounds and looks really appetizing on their website. The pictures of the hotdogs and their toppings really made my mouth water, so i was very impatient to try it out.

The decor itself is okay: white, simple/trendy and clean. But if it wasn't for the ketchup and mustard bottles on the single table you wouldn't guess that the place was an eatery. There was basically only a counter, and all the toppings and sauces are hidden behind the bar.

A hotdog is 3.60 EUR which sounds like a good deal, but the result was very disappointing compared to the expectations i had as all the toppings came from the supermarket.

I had a Guaca-hotdog which is: Guacamole, onions and grated cheese on your hotdog. Sounded really good but the result was: Supermarket guacamole (not even chunky with avocado, mostly liquid), grated cheese thats not even melted and industrial fried onions.

Service is very friendly and quick (because everything comes out of cans and bottles) though.

I loved the concept, but honestly my homemade hotdogs are way better! Maybe i should open my own hotdog buffet/restaurant.
