Dat Dog, the popular hot dog franchise based out of New Orleans, is coming to Baton Rouge just in time for football season! Hot dogs, toppings and more… oh my!
The Advocate reports two franchisees of the immensely popular ‘Dat Dog’ in New Orleans have signed a lease to open the chain’s first Baton Rouge location.
The report says the plan is for the eatery to open in the Arlington Marketplace near LSU, next door to a brand new Rouses, in time for the college football season. The franchisees, two New Orleans attorneys, say they also hope to have a Dat Dog food truck open for tailgates, catering and other events.

Dat Dog’s menu spans traditional and unusual franks, like kielbasa, bratwurst, alligator, crawfish, and duck. With 30 toppings and several different sausages, the combinations are endless at Dat Dog. They even serve vegan and vegetarian hot dogs, something for everyone! The buns are notably vegan, and there are lettuce wrap options for the gluten-free.
From the folks at Dat Dog…
Dat Dog is a place where amazing and affordable food, fun-loving staff, and bright colors provide you with a sanctuary of joy from the moment you cross its threshold. Combining the soul of Louisiana with the sophistication of Europe, Dat Dog’s artfully crafted cuisine of Hot Dogs, sausages (including vegetarian, vegan and fish), burgers and chicken (fried, grilled or tossed in buffalo sauce) are a thing of beauty. The over 30 toppings available at no extra charge allow you to create your very own “jazz improvisation in a bun”.
This is one comfort food many of us find hard to give up but if hot dogs are not your thing, the restaurant also branches out beyond just hot dogs, with burgers, chicken sandwiches, and fries. The Baton Rouge location may offer some Baton Rouge-specific items as well.
