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 $6, you get $12 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 ($3.39), a Polish sausage ($4.49), a steamed vegan dog ($3.39), and a crispy corn dog ($2.39, available in vegetarian, too). Customize your dining delight with any of Capitol Dawg's 45 plus toppings (up to $1.20 each) or opt for one of the specialty dogs, such as the Tesla Dawg ($4.09), loaded with mustard, chili, and onions, or the El Senador Dawg ($5.29), a Sonoran-style bacon-wrapped dog nestled with 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 ($7.37+) or matched with one of their succulent sides, such as beer-battered onion rings ($2.99) or sweet-potato fries ($2.99) 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 ($3.49) while pondering the moment in history when the hot dog was created.


CityVoters named Capitol Dawg the Best Hot Dog in 2009 and 2010. More than 190 Yelpers give Capitol Dawg 3.5 stars, and 91% of Urbanspooners recommend it.
