Haute Dog & Fries was a breath of fresh air. It was a different kind of experience, with a different kind of food. Upon strolling in, the lady at the front counter asked if we had ever been here before, which we had not (visiting from Wisconsin). She explained the menu and how the process works while throwing in a few sneaky up-sells. She made it a point to indicate they are regular sized hot dogs, but the buns are New England style buns that are jam packed with all kinds of awesomeness. You can also add AS MANY TOPPINGS AS YOU WANT. Huzzah! I ordered the NY Ruben (Grilled sauerkraut, Swiss cheese, brown mustard) and the Chicago Style Dog (Tomato, pickle, chopped onions, sweet relish, banana peppers, yellow mustard, celery salt). A side of sweet potato fries and a drink, plus the girlfriends order brought it to about $30, which was a little more than I was expecting to be honest. The food quality was great, I was quite happy with it. I felt the toppings were of better quality than most places I've been that feature hot dogs. Perhaps fresher? The facility was clean, a bit warm though (no A/C?), and inviting. I would absolutely go back and would recommend anyone who loves hot dogs to go there as well - if you don't mind the price.

Looking for a contender for Ben's Chili Bowl? This chili half smoke has them beat. So good! They fries are cut fresh in front you and come out piping hot. One of my favorite places for a quick bite.

I live maybe two blocks from this MEATing spot...if I had my druthers, I'd move in. My first experience: I simply asked about their lamb dog, but ended up ordering another tasty morsel (the OBX).... a few minutes later the owner (or manager, I can't remember) brought out the lamb dog split into two for my wife and I to try. My wife is a vegetarian but I am not so, I did what any decent American would and consumed it like like a great white shark at seal island. I've since tried a few more of their dogs and even their lobster roll and I have never walked away unhappy. If you do, you need to look deep within and search for answers...

Haute Doggy! I love a good hot dog and fries so when I heard that this place makes "the best hot dogs in Virginia," I knew I had to try it. Perusing through their menu, I opted for their signature hot dog - the Bombshell aka The Monroe. It contains sautéed onions, mango-pineapple relish, and jalapenos. There were a dozen other signature hot dogs on the menu. Some of them sounded really interesting and unique, like the Banh Mi (sriracha mayo, carrots, cucumber, jalapenos, cilantro) or Duck, Duck, Dog (hoisin sauce, scallions, cucumbers). All their hot dogs are made with natural all-beef franks and are gluten, dairy, and sugar free. They serve them in New England style rolls, buttered and toasted, but they also have gluten free buns available. Aside from hot dogs, they also have local sausages, a lobster roll, fish and chips, lamb sliders, and of course fries, be it cheese, chili, or sweet potato. I wasn't a big fan of the Monroe hot dog I ordered. The flavors were interesting but didn't mesh well for me. It's also a bit pricey for a hot dog, almost $5. However, I appreciate that they are creative with their flavors and use fairly common ingredients rather than try to be like one of those gourmet burger places that offer foie gras and truffles. Instead, you get hot peppers, chili, sauerkraut, BBQ sauce, banana peppers, weiner sauce, etc. Haute Dog and Fries also offers hand-dipped ice cream and handmade shakes, as well as the infamous "Eskimo Dog." Upside: your pooch is welcomed and there's free Wi-Fi!

This place has a lot of things going for it, but honestly I was a little let down. PROS: The food was undeniably good. I got the German style sausage and my wife and kids all got hot dogs. They have craft beer on tap, which is awesome in a fast casual restaurant. The place is clean, has a lot of character, and the staff was friendly. CONS: Parking is difficult. We had to park a block away, which was no big deal, just know that if you plan to drive, you might not find a spot anywhere nearby. The place is pretty tight; I'd imagine it fills up at lunch time. The portions are pretty small, especially for the children. Most kids can eat a whole hot dog. My 7, 9, and 11 year old mini-mes were a bit let down when I placed a half-dog in front of them. Had I known that I would have ordered "adult" portions. As far as the claim to "give families a fun time out together without putting a dent in their wallet," this business angle needs a little work. I had a sausage, my wife and two kids each had a hot dog (and fries) and the 7 year old just had mac n cheese. I had a beer, everyone else had a chocolate milk or soda, and we spent $58.12. I don't know what the owners' idea of a properly stuffed Mom or Dad wallet is, but that certainly put a dent in mine, considering it was just hot dogs. It's a little shady that prices are omitted from the web menu. By comparison, we had dinner at Bertucci's, near the Springfield Mall the other day, each had an actual Italian meal, again I had a beer, and the cost of the meal (with a 20% tip) was slightly less. Regarding the "family fun" aspect, there was a cool vintage Ms Pacman game back by the restroom, which harkened back to my childhood, but didn't draw any notice of my own children. Other than that, I don't recall any basic child entertainment mechanisms such as kids' menus to scribble on or crayons being available to customers. When I was a kid my parents used to take me to a "family restaurant" that had a barrel full of cheap toys that kids were free to visit on the way out. That made my day, and guaranteed proper behavior at the table in anticipation of claiming my reward. But I digress... A barrel of cheap toys would probably not be appropriate here, but don't claim to be a family fun hotspot when they only effort you've made toward that end is to serve hot dogs. It's definitely worth checking out, but I wouldn't bring the kids. This place is better suited for the young professional living in Old Town who wants to grab a quick beer and gourmet dog while browsing the free wi-fi.

Absolutely love this place. I normally don't care much for Hotdogs (Burger guy here!) but I love what they do with them. The fries are good and the Shakes are great too!

Really good dogs about 4.50 a piece more or less. Lots of varieties. Fries or decent. I'll definitely be back to try other dogs
