Diners' challenge: nine topping-slathered hot dogs in 20 minutes; successful eaters immortalized on wall and get to create hot-dog recipe

The Fine Print

Promotional value expires Dec 25, 2013. Amount paid never expires. Limit 1 per person. Valid only for option purchased. Not valid for previous challenge winners. Must use promotional value in 1 visit. Reservation recommended. Call (517) 351-3294 to schedule a challenge time in advance. Merchant is solely responsible to purchasers for the care and quality of the advertised goods and services.

People often customize their hot dog with toppings, whether it's mustard and relish or two additional hot dogs. The possibilities are endless with this Groupon.

Choose from Three Options

  • $17 for the Big Dawg Challenge for one person (a $32.25 value)
  • $33 for the Big Dawg Challenge for two people (a $64.50 value)
  • $60 for the Big Dawg Challenge for four people (a $129 value)

Eaters strive for immortality by gobbling down nine of What Up Dawg's signature Dawgs, made from meats such as italian sausage and bratwurst and each slathered in toppings such as chili, bell peppers, and jalapeños. However, just like when Hercules completed the 12 labors, those who accept the challenge only get 20 minutes to finish the whole thing. The few who succeed will find fame and glory in the forms of their picture on the wall, the chance to craft their own hot-dog recipe, and a T-shirt. See more about each signature hot dog here; the Super Fire Dawg and Whatever Dawg are not part of the challenge.

What Up Dawg? Restaurant and Tavern

What Up Dawg? Restaurant and Tavern celebrates encased meats by offering 10 different sausage styles. Chili douses natural casing franks for the Coney Dawg, while all-beef franks get Chicago style from bright green relish and sport peppers, rather than a lot of wind. Chicken sausage and meat-free dogs are healthier alternatives, and hot sausages set taste buds ablaze. These dogs pair especially well with local Michigan beers and the Spartans games that flicker on the televisions hanging around the perimeter of forest-green walls.
