Disappointed would not honor reservation
Open and roomy outdoor seating that accommodates social distancing. Anyone can find something to eat here, many options. Hostess said they don’t take reservations after I made a reservation online. Self order at the counter. Full bar with frozen drinks. Plenty of families with young kids. Casual and easy.
Food was good but drinks were not. Reservations are not required or accepted so booking in advance was of zero benefit. Bit pricey for a glorified hot dog. Won't be on our radar when we return.
I went on October 3, 2020. I think the experience would’ve been far better if the damn bartender/cashier wasn’t such a jerk! He was straight up rude right out the gate. I thought it may have just been me, but my friends also said he was being rude to them as well. We ordered the tots with crawfish étouffée on top… When the order came out, there was no étouffée on the tots so I went to the same rude guy and he said “that’s them”. Uh... I’m from New Orleans and that’s not Étouffée… That’s tomatoes and sour cream. He said the étouffée was underneath it and it definitely wasn’t. Aside from downright disrespectful attitude, the hotdogs were very good. The duck special, which is not on the menu, was delicious and a fan favorite. Everyone we came in contact with, aside from the cashier/bartender, was very nice. An attitude like his does not bode well in a city that depends on its reputation for wonderful hospitality. Especially during Covid.
Only dog place I know where you can get 4 amazing vegan dogs with a ridiculous amount of unusual toppings. How is this restaurant not in more cities? My top vegan choice is the apple sage dog- so hard to tell it’s vegan! Be sure to get the tots too. Loved the casual outdoor seating in this lovely, colorful restaurant. A great place to grab a filling fast meal after busy day.
The best hotdog I’ve every had!
The staff at Dat Dog- Freret are following all of the COVID guidelines, including mask wearing and social distancing while remaining their friendly selves. I feel safe going out to eat at their restaurant given the outdoor seating. I loved Dat Dog before COVID and love 'em even more now!
