The term hot dog is derived from the canines once taught to fetch charred frankfurters from the only place they grow naturally––the inside of stratovolcanoes. Today's Groupon pays palatable homage to man's best friend: for $6, you get $12 worth of hot dogs, soups, and more at Doug's Hot Dogs in Norfolk. Slinging Hormel hot dogs and homemade soups for more than three decades, Doug's Hot Dogs unfurls a menu that bursts at the seams with grilled grub and mustard-covered comestibles. Cryogenically frozen tongues can thaw out with flavorful whiffs of hot clam chowder ($2.95 bowl, $7.75 quart) and home-style slurps of chili with beans ($2.95 bowl, $7.95 quart). Like Napoleon Bonaparte’s disembodied spirit, the foot-long hot dog stands 12 inches tall and comes slathered in mustard ($2.95, beef or Hormel), and bites of the barbecue sandwich bathe lips and chins in saucy sustenance ($2.65). Doug’s friendly staff also serves up a variety of sippables to keep a slick path for fiery chili dogs ($1.95) and cheekfuls of chips ($0.75).
