Though the personification of hot dogs is a common advertising trope, be-limbed versions of the hand-held dinner inspire haunting dreams that linger atop pillows as phantom ketchup aromas. Today's Groupon puts the dog within the man instead of vice versa: for $7, you get $14 worth of hot dogs, drinks, and more at Capitol Dawg.
The Midtown hot-dog haven offers a dazzling display of bun-clad hot-dog and sausage dinners. The menu boasts 10 types of links, including the basic beef frankfurter ($3.49), a Polish sausage ($4.69), a steamed vegan dog ($3.49), and a crispy corn dog ($2.59, available in vegetarian, too). Customize your dining delight with any of Capitol Dawg's 45 plus toppings (up to $1.50 each) or opt for one of the specialty dogs, such as the Tesla Dawg ($4.19), loaded with mustard, chili, and onions, or the El Senador Dawg ($5.59), a Sonoran-style bacon-wrapped dog nestled under a cozy blanket of pinto beans, cheese, jalapeños, grilled onions, and chopped fresh veggies. Dogs can also be paired with french fries and a fountain drink to form a mighty meal ($7.39+) or matched with one of their succulent sides, such as beer-battered onion rings ($3.49) or sweet-potato fries ($3.49) for a customized creation.
The lively eatery has a manic, vintagelike décor, complete with checkered floors and wall-covering knick-knacks throughout. The expansive outdoor patio makes it an ideal place to enjoy a meaty meal on a bread bed as a new Tuesday tradition or to linger over a root-beer float ($3.69) while pondering the moment in history when the hot dog was created.
