This darling of the gourmet hot-dog boom ought to satisfy any dog-related craving, what with 16 types of franks and sausages (including vegan options) and umpteen toppings. Success depends on your personal selections, and as dog traditionalists we like the brats and imported German wieners best. While you might like the gator, turducken, or crawfish dogs better than us, we admit the duck version with blackberry sauce was downright darn good, and the fluffy buns held up well. The bright blue buildings at all three locations make for an easy, fun hang with a brew and your crew (the gallery overlooking Frenchmen Street is a stellar view), and an inexpensive dinner (though it’s still a $7 to $9 hot dog).
