Using a pillowy bun as a barrier, hot dogs are safely protected from environmental hazards such as open manholes and greasy-handed schoolchildren. Enjoy snugly shielded franks with today's Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of gourmet hot dogs, sausages, and more at Dawgs! in Scotts Valley.
Dawgs! offers a mouthwatering menu of savory links in a laid-back setting. Sink your chompers into a comforting classic such as the American Kobe beef dog on your choice of french or sesame-seed roll ($5.50), or nosh on alternative eats such as the hickory-smoked vegan dog ($5.25). Though traditional toppings make an appearance at the condiment bar, premier combinations such as the Parthenon—with sundried tomatoes, kalamata olives, and feta cheese—adorn any dog, sausage, or open palm for $1.25. Sidekick-worthy sides include ranch or barbecue-seasoned house-fried potato chips ($2.25) and a frosty flotilla of ice-cream shakes. Potential patrons who aren't swayed by gourmet combinations and home-cooked flavors will certainly be lured by the siren song and dance of the devoted, anonymous employee who, decked out in full dog regalia, stands guard outside the establishment.
- Their specialty, however, is topping combinations. For example, the “Ole” topping — suggested for any hot dog, smoked brat or Louisiana hot link sausage — combines guacamole, sour cream, pico de gallo salsa and jack cheese. The most popular order so far, Beason said, is the Louisiana hot link with the “Island” topping, a flavorful blend of mango, pineapple, peaches, red bell pepper, mild jalapeño and onions. – Peter Burke, Press-Banner
