Dat Dog hosts food trucks tonight

Fun event alert – Dat Dog is hosting a food truck fest tonight. We don’t see a downside to this happy hour/dinner option.

BTW, Dat Dog is the gourmet hot dog restaurant in New Orleans. The menu includes everything from alligator dogs to classic Chicago-style hot dogs to crawfish sausage (menu). Word of advice – know what you want when you get up to the register. You can mix and match whatever toppings you want and it gets overwhelming if it is your first time. You might want to start with the suggested toppings for the dog you order and get more creative next time.

Dat Dog has two locations – one on Freret (original location) and one on Magazine. Tonight’s fest is at the Freret location.

We had a wonderful, last-minute lunch meet-up with our New in NOLA friends Sunday.

We ate our way through the St. Claude food truck rally in the Marigny (more info). Thanks to everyone who came! Hope you can join us next time.
