The USDA's food pyramid traditionally puts bread on the bottom because some of the most savory suppers are best served on buns. Enjoy a sturdier and grainier foundation with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of hot dogs, burgers, and thirst quenchers at Chef’s Dog House in Newington.
Chef’s Dog House slings a hearty assortment of bun-dwelling edibles into the hands and mouths of guests frequenting its laid-back, family-friendly space. The in-house condiment bar boasts more than 30 colorful and freshly chopped toppings, many of which pair properly with classic chili cheese dogs ($3.45) or savory Boston dogs—bacon-wrapped hot dogs topped with baked beans and grilled onions ($3.75). Famished feasters can also strive to defeat the Godzilla burger, a double cheeseburger piled high with pepper jack cheese, avocado, frizzled potatoes, and oddly out of sync audio ($6.50). To round out the outing, guest can choose from a variety of soups and salads, and select from a rainbow's share of soft drinks available in bottomless, refillable cups that mysteriously don't leak.
