Using a pillowy bun as a barrier, hot dogs are safely protected from environmental hazards such as acid rain and greasy-handed schoolchildren. Enjoy snugly shielded franks with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of hot dog creations and other classic American eats at Tower Dogs.
The menu at Tower Dogs boasts 14 time-tested dog breeds and more than 20 topping options to perfectly personalize them. Take a left-coast bite out of the California dog, which is dressed in bacon, avocado, grilled onion, cheese, and brown mustard ($4.75). Or test taste buds' limits with a caliente dog, a spicy combination of habanero sausage, grilled onion, red peppers, and sour cream ($4.75). Though Tower Dogs serves an average Joe (a regular dog with mustard, onion, and relish), there are also plenty of options for the hungrier-than-average Joe. Chester's big bambino features Italian sausage, marinara sauce, mozzarella cheese, grilled onion, and peppers, while the last call dog is a frenzy of Polish sausage, egg, hash browns, and nacho cheese or country gravy. Tower Dogs also serves tofu dogs with vegan chili; Thai vegan dogs made with peanut sauce, red peppers, and cilantro; and dogless creations such as nachos.
Hungry pilgrims can locate Tower Dogs by its yellow walls bright enough to attract butterflies and superliminal sign proclaiming "TOWER DOGS NOW." To accommodate insomniacs and famished moonbeams, Tower Dogs is open until midnight on Thursday nights and until 3 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights.
