Welcome to Groupon, Delaware! For our inaugural deal, $5 gets you $10 worth of hot dogs and more at Johnnie's Dog House on Concord Pike. Since this is everyone's first Groupon, allow us to briefly explain how it works.
How Groupon Works
Groupon is a combination of the words group and coupon. Each day, we offer an unbeatable deal on the best of Wilmington and Newark: restaurants, spas, sporting events, theater, and more. By promising businesses a minimum number of customers, we get discounts you won't find anywhere else. We call it "collective buying power." If you want to get the deal, just click BUY before the offer ends at midnight. If the minimum number of people (20 for today's deal) sign up by the end of the day, you'll be emailed a gift certificate the next morning. You can print your Groupons or redeem them with our mobile app. Use them whenever you want until the deal expires—today's expires in one year. If not enough people join, no one gets the deal (and you won't be charged), so invite your friends to make sure you get the discount!
People eat three times a day to prevent mouthy mouths from brashly blurting out their distaste for the rest of the digestive system. Today's Groupon prevents inner-system quarreling by subduing chatty cheeks with hot dogs: for $5, you get $10 worth of hot dogs and more at Johnnie's Dog House on Concord Pike.
Voted Best of Delaware in 2009 and 2010 by Delaware Today, Johnnie's Dog House grills up 100% beef, turkey, and veggie hot dogs with a variety of unusual fixings and has a menu of belly-filling burgers and stomach-satisfying sides. Hot dogs ($2.50–$3.50) can bring back memories of the South, such as the deep-fried Texas Tommy, topped with bacon and cheese ($3.50). For fans of rounded meat, Johnnie's serves burgers such as the Junkyard Double ($5.25), which is topped with melted cheese, grilled onions, bacon, chili, tomatoes, and fries. Savory and sweet can collide in a heavyweight battle in a stomach ring with the creamy milkshake ($3.50 for a small, $4.25 for a large) and its crafty combatant, the crunchy fries ($2.75). Johnnie's also serves meatless options such as veggie hot dogs and hot-dog-shaped air.
Johnnie's was named Best Family Restaurant by Delaware Today and offers a friendly atmosphere free of thick fog. Hunker down with hearty American fare or run away from the red-and-yellow-striped awning and consume your meal in the car or on top of someone else's car.
Johnnie's Dog House was voted Best Family Place, Lunch Spot, and New Restaurant in 2009 by Delaware Today readers. Examiner and Metromix reviewed the restaurant. Yelpers give it an average of four stars.
- …when a fast food restaurant opened on route 202 that sold primarily hot dogs instead of hamburgers (a rarity in the fast food world) I was overjoyed. And Johnnie's Dog House didn't disappoint. – Amanda Lamar, Examiner
- This may be healthy eating, but my eyes and my stomach were longing for Johnnie's half-pound, all-beef jumbo dog…that a guy at a table near us was savoring. And that's no carnivore's dilemma. – Patricia Talorico, Metromix
Johnnie’s Dog House
The menu at Johnnie’s Dog House reads like a map of the United States. The Chicago-style dog comes crowned in yellow mustard relish, onion, tomatoes, peppers and pickles; meanwhile, the Texas Tommy’s hot dog is wrapped in bacon, deep fried, and topped in cheese. Baked beans and chopped onions sit atop the Boston Beanie Weenie, and the eatery’s corn dog evokes state fairs nationwide without coming with a prize-winning pig to take home as a pet. The culinary team crafts hot dogs from fresh ingredients, the same process they use to create their burgers and sandwiches, stuffed with combinations of pulled pork, crisp vegetables, fish, and other delicacies.
