“Dubuque = turkey dressing sandwich = Naughty dog”
Review of The Naughty Dog - CLOSED

The Naughty Dog

Reviewed February 11, 2013 via mobile

Being an old river rat from Dubuque I'll tell you a bit of local lore - turkey dressing sandwiches. They are a Dubuque staple are weddings, funerals, church festivals and family gatherings. Now don't mistake turkey with dressing for this rare treat - there is no turkey in a turkey dressing sandwich, at least not whole, unblended turkey. It is just turkey dressing served on a nice white bun. I know what you are thinking - dressing is mostly bread, a bun is bread, therefore this is bread on bread. Yep, now you've got it!
Well ya gotta try it before you judge it - it's the first thing I have when I come back home. Anywho - the Naughty Dog takes turkey dressing sandwiches to another level, kind of like what lobster Mac and cheese is to Kraft Mac and Cheese. Oh, the N dog only makes up the rare treat sometimes so call ahead, but thy have other equally good food so you won't be disappointed there either.

A friend of mine told me about this place so I wanted to stop by and see it. The coffee was really good, too often in coffee shops it's just okay.

I just had breakfast but they had all sorts of food, panini, muffins, etc. I did end up getting some cookies, they were delicious!

It has 2 levels, a main floor and a loft. Plenty of places to read a book or spread out papers to study.
