Dat Dog in New Orleans, LA

Dat Dog
5031 Freret
New Orleans, LA 70115

Keep in mind, this place is CASH ONLY and closed on MONDAYS.

on Freret St.

now that we got that out of the way. you would think that with a paint job like this, that this place is hard to miss but it actually is very easy to miss (i think because it is over-shadowed by the two larger stores that flank it on either side).


the menu has one star! Hot dogssssssssssss! they come in a variety of types of meat (crawfish hot dog??? ) and some delicious sides. You can get a hot dog for $6 and split fries with someone for $3. the inside is quite small. i counted 3 tables. but since this is New orleans and the weather outside is usually bearable, you can eat outside!

I had the Louisiana sausage with chili cheese and caramelized onions (no one to share fries with on this visit). The hot dog took a while but I’m glad because that means each one is individually prepared with love and effort! My first bite was amazing and yummy! The crisp casing put up a good fight but was no match for my incisors (sorry my dad is a dentist and I do know what every tooth is called).  I must say I didn’t find this sausage spicy at all but the guy at the cash register had warned me that if I love spicy food, that this wouldn’t be hot enough for me but I tried it anyways cuz I didn’t feel brave enough to try the crawfish hot dog. The chili cheese on top was flavorful but not too salty. What I loved was the toasted bread though! The bread for a hot dog is usually an after thought but this one was delicious! I was fairly impressed with this place and can’t wait to take someone with me next time so i can order the french fries that looked amazing!
