Dog Daze Gourmet Hot Dogs' founders started out small. During a road trip that happened to pass through West Virginia, they stopped for gas and picked up a few chili dogs. They were "perhaps the best chili dog[s] ever," and the unexpected culinary experience inspired them to start researching their own gourmet hot dog restaurant. They wanted their dogs to be the best around, so they started touring the country, sampling chili dogs wherever they went. They also discovered any number of other delicious hot dog preparation methods, many of which appear on the Dog Daze menu. Today, they serve 21 different styles of hot dogs, plus sandwiches and entrees such as pierogies.
