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 $10, you get $25 worth of hot dogs, American fare, and drinks at The Smothered Mutt in Kissee Mills.
The hot-dog designers at The Smothered Mutt whip up a menu of authentic all-beef dogs dressed in more than 50 toppings and fashioned in 34 unique regional combinations. Build your own dog with TSM’s vast array of toppings that canvas a “hairless” dog ($3) prepared in one of three ways: grilled, boiled in NY pushcart style, or ripped in the deep fryer. Diners can top franks with free accouterments such as green relish, yellow or brown mustard, and Heinz chili sauce, or premium dog decorations such as chili con carne, sauerkraut, and pepperoni ($3.25+). Based off of geographical areas throughout the country, TSM’s 34 preplanned combinations are made from regional ingredients and endowed with keys to their respective cities in order to infuse each dog with authentic taste. Cooks smother a New York–style pushcart dog with chili, shredded cheddar, and bacon to create the bacon-chili-cheese dog ($4), and the Chicago-style dog comes fully loaded with sweet relish, chopped raw onions, and dill pickle spears served on a warm, soft bun ($4.25). Frothy brews such as Bud Light ($1.75+) and delicious desserts such as an ice-cream sundae ($3.79) combine perfectly with dishes.
The Smothered Mutt is filled with roadside memorabilia such as an authentic Rusty Wallace #2 MGD stock-car hood adorning the walls and a pit crew changing tires in the parking lot. When the weather is nice, diners can sit outside as canine companions receive complimentary treats and bowls of water.
