The big news at the Dog is that we are planning on expanding our menu with sausages from around the world.  This is being done for the buildup to our opening across the street at 5030 Rue Freret which will allow us larger indoor and of course cafe’ seating outside with all the smutz. We are also in the process of working on new uniforms to greet the move: we’ll test Tuxedo Fridays as well as Fez and French Fridays over the next few weeks.  Our fans and customers will have a chance to decide which style is best.  We are proud to be a part of Freret St. New Orleans and we are proud that New Orleans now has a Quality Hotdog Stand in the top 10 rated in America.  Go New Orleans.  Go Freret.
