At The Mucky Pup, the hot dog chefs pride themselves on providing no-frills comfort food without fancy names and obscure ingredients. But there are two ingredients they'd never add to their hot dogs and fries: squeeze cheese and yellow mustard. Instead, they top their franks with everything from chili, real slices of cheese, hearty mustard, and the house's dirty kraut.
Their signature hot dog is the crack dog, with the juicy hot dog wrapped in a slice of bacon and set upon a scrambled egg patty and slice of cheese. But hot dogs aren't their only specialty. They also cook up triangles of baked mac 'n' cheese and drizzle french fries in a choice of savory sauces. They top fries with cheese and chili to create a classic American side, or use brown gravy and cheese to approximate Canadian poutine fries. The house drinks are just as unpretentious as the food, with bottles of Yoo-hoo and Stewart's soda that bring back memories of childhood without the sadness of getting birthday cards from old toys.
