How to Order the Perfect HopDog
There’s many parts of America that lay claim to the hot dog – but in Central Connecticut, you arguably have some of the best. In fact the State of Connecticut’s tourism board has built a hot dog tour! With two of the founders hailing from the state, it’s only right that we pay a little homage to the dogs they grew up with!

and served on a vegan bun
|The Classic American Hot Dog, ours is made with a combination of Bio Pork and Beef, traditionally flavored with garlic and paprika.|
|Based on Louisiana’s traditional Andouille sausage, this hot dog is double smoked and full of green herbs, onion, garlic and spices.
**NOTE: THIS SAUSAGE HAS MUSTARD IN IT**
|Our take on the classic “hot link” combines the savory lamb Merguez sausages of Morocco and the spicy beef Chorizo of Mexico. Think spices like cumin, coriander and garlic as well as flavorful chiles and a hint of red wine vinegar. Nice and spicy... but not too spicy!
**NOTE: THERE'S NO PORK IN THIS HOT DOG AT ALL**
|The Vegan Dog - For those of you who decline the swine (or beef or lamb), we found a vegan alternative. We don't make the sausage, but we stand behind it. Hail Seitan.|

New Britain Beef Sauce
Yes, chili may be classic in other parts of America as a hot dog topping, but true hot dog lovers know that nothing beats the meat sauce from Capitol Lunch in New Britain, CT. Rich, flavourful and the perfect complement to a hot dog, our mild all-beef sauce pays homage to Cappy’s legendary sauce (and we can’t wait for them to make a trip out here to see if ours is worthy of the name).
Chopped Cole Slaw
Throughout the South, folks like to add some coleslaw to the top of their dogs. Lightly vinegared, creamy and crisp, it also makes a great side dish. (Vegetarian)
You can’t have a hot dog joint without a damned good cheese sauce! (Vegetarian)
Hot Pepper Relish
Aside from hot sauce or sliced pickled Jalapeños, this is probably the spiciest thing on our menu. Riffing off of the amazing pepper relish of Blackie’s in Cheshire, CT, we combine bell peppers, hot peppers, apple cider vinegar and a few secret spices and let it simmer down until we get a beautiful spicy pickled pepper relish! (Vegan)
Bacon. Broken into bits. Eaten by the handful.
