Dat Dog Restaurant Review: New Orleans has seen a renaissance in “dog houses,” but this one is decidedly the best. A wait in line is rewarded with plain steamed German wieners and a variety of sausages (alligator, kielbasa, bratwurst, Louisiana hot and even crawfish). All are served on slightly sweet sourdough buns that are steamed and then toasted. Here’s the best surprise of all: Dat Dog mixes the best milk shake around. And do take advantage of the full bar, especially the nice beer selection. The place is cramped and whimsically painted, and the brainchild of former federal prosecutor Constantine Georges and self-appointed "hot dog guy" Skip Murray, who began his hot dog career in London. Sometimes the simplest concepts are the ones that work the best --- Dat Dog is exhibit A. Also located at 3336 Magazine St., 504-324-2226.
