Now with four locations, this colorful joint features indoor/outdoor dining, a full bar and sometimes live music. There are dogs of all breed, from polish sausage and brat to alligator, red hot and crawfish sausage. There's even the Sea Dog - tempura battered fried cod filet served with homemade tartar sauce. Then, choose toppings, which can include chili, cheese - real Cheddar, not the gloppy liquid kind, bacon, ranch, Andouille sauce, guacamole and crawfish rtouffe. The fries are outstanding. Order cocktails or beer, and for the kids, one of the floats, shakes or malts or you can ask for a Shirley Temple. Yes, it really is on the menu.
- Best Value: "Even if you don't eat meat, try the seadog or the housemade veggie patty dog."
- Uptown New Orleans' Best Lunch: "If you want some help topping your dog, ask for "chef's choice" and be surprised."
- Late Night, Family Friendly: "If your 10-year-old just turned vegetarian, she'll love the housemade veggie patty dog."
- Recommended as Best Value Because: Dat Dog, uptown and on Frenchmen Street, is a rib-sticking option for eating on the cheap.
- Best for Uptown New Orleans' Best Lunch Because: Dat Dog is like a food truck turned into a restaurant. What's better than a loaded sausage and beer for lunch?
- Best for Late Night Because: Dat Dog dishes powerfully tasty late night eats, especially at the location on Frenchmen Street.
- Best for Family Friendly Because: Located on Freret, Magazine and now Frenchmen Street, this dog emporium is worth howling about.
