2. Daddy’s Dogs

Daddy’s Dogs has so many great options, it’s hard to pick a favorite. But while all of them, including the Music City Dog, with bacon, cheese, onion and bbq sauce, or the Seattle Dog, with cream cheese, grilled onion and Sriracha all sound good, if we have to pick just one, we’re going with the Big Daddy. It’s a hot dog topped with cream cheese, bacon, pickle, grilled onion and jalapeño, covered in Daddy’s Secret Sauce. A late night menu is also available.
