Roy's Royal Dogs Restaurant Review

: Nathan's all-beef hot dogs are served at this Acworth spot, which owner Roy Rosacia opened in 2014 after doing a lot of festivals. You can get them plain or in any one of several different iterations. While we tend to prefer classics, we also tried "The Whistle Pig" (bacon-wrapped, deep-fried and finished with melted "cheese") and "Lord of the Rings" (topped with pulled pork, sauce and three fried onion rings). Options include bratwurst, turkey Polish sausage, Polish sausage, Italian sausage and a half dozen or so baskets with everything from meatballs in a sub to fried seafood. Don't miss the chili, with various legumes and a nice savory character that's not too sweet. Vegetarians may opt for a vegetable gyro. For dessert, get a fried Moon Pie, a funnel cake, or a fried Oreo or brownie.
