Remember when you were 12, and you and your friends dared each other to eat things? ("I'm going to make a magic potion of ketchup, salad dressing, and Coke and will bet you five bucks you can't DRINK IT.") Man Bites Dog is like the grown-up, foodie version of that, with menu items like The Cartoon Dog: It's made with a beef frank, peanut butter, grape jelly and Cap'n Crunch cereal. This all isn't to suggest that owner Jeremiah Allen doesn't have a sophisticated palate (note the classy brioche buns), just a playful one, and my personal favorite is the understated-by-comparison Reuben: It starts with a beef frank base, and is then topped with sauerkraut, swiss, and Thousand Island dressing.
Finally a GOOD place for hot dogs!! And the have the big wieners!!! Not the shriveled up Sonic kind. I wanted to give this joint five stars. The reason I didn't is because I didn't like their corn dogs. They do their own breading and it just didn't work for me.
