Hot dogs are the preferred fare of ballpark vendors because of their portability and clear aerodynamic advantage over beef bourguignon. Savor this delicious treat without warming up your catching arm with today's Groupon: for $15, you get two Big Otis Specials at Otis Jackson's Soul Dog in North Hollywood (a $30 value). The special includes the following for each person:
- Choice of any hot dog
- One order of fries
- One side dish
- One piece of fried chicken
- One large fountain drink
Otis Jackson's Soul Dog slathers the noble frankfurter in a savory slew of soul-fare toppings inside a modern counter-service bistro. Soul Dog's menu reveres as sacrosanct the Big Otis Special, a hearty helping of comfort fare that tugs at the soul without forcing it to watch the end of Casablanca. The Original Soul Dog sports a tall cap of high collard-green-cucumber relish, sweet-potato purée, and bacon crumbles, and the Mac Daddy Dog stacks sausages with creamy mac 'n' cheese, fried onions, and diced bell peppers. Diners may also opt for the all-beef, naturally cased Snap Dog, which serves up gluten- and nitrate-free fare with two basic toppings. Down-home sides of candied yams and collard greens offer dogs plated companionship more satisfying than a squirrel that swallowed a squeaky toy.
Otis Jackson's Soul Dog recently gutted and remodeled its current space, engineering a sleek, open-concept where stainless-steel cuts clean lines; where funky doo-wop murals ferment a cultured vibe; and where booths, tables, and bar tops swathe a community of hot-dog-devouring connoisseurs.
Otis Jackson's Soul Dog
The menu of Otis Jackson's Soul Dog encompasses the heart and tasty soul of this NoHo Arts District establishment: combining the comfort of soul food with the toppable nature of the hot dog. Preservative-free gourmet dogs make ideal foundations for southern staples, such as mac 'n' cheese, collard greens, and black-eyed peas, all served alongside fresh Southern fried chicken that's never frozen or locked in time stasis. The scents of sausages, fluffy Sunday waffles, and candied yams waft through the sleek, modern space, which is accented by brushed metal and cool colors.
