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 $4, you get $8 worth of hot dogs, sausages, and drinks at Urban Dog and Sausage. Choose from the following locations: Citrus Heights, Folsom, Sacramento, and a location soon to open in Rancho Cordova.
Urban Dog and Sausage serves up encased meats armed with innovative flair and premium ingredients. The menu stars Vienna Beef sausages, flown in from Chicago, that range from the aptly named Chicago dog with all the fixins ($3.69) to the rise-and-shineable brunch dog, a freshly grilled frankfurter topped with fried egg, smoked bacon, and yellow mustard ($3.79, available at the Citrus Heights and Folsom locations). A princely Royale with Cheese burger ($4.09) tempts patrons who prefer to sate their carnivorous cravings sans link, and the Nhot Dog, a meatless frank dressed with grilled onions and yellow mustard, pleases more veggie-centric palates ($3.19). The Govna, a beer bratwurst heavyweight, arrives coated in ceremonial dusseldorf brown mustard and is accompanied by a choice of grilled onions or sauerkraut ($4.19). Urban Dog's Folsom location also sports a selection of scrumptious cold beers on tap ($2.25–$2.50), ideal for mealtime pairing or melodious glass-clinking.
As of August 31, 2011, the Sacramento location has closed.
