Dash Dogs!

I haven’t been keeping up with blogging, but don’t worry, I have lots of restaurants to write about! Last Wednesday, Chris and I headed to Dash Dogs on Essex and Rivington for some hot dogs, sliders, and sodas. (Do you see how I’m trying to eat healthier?!) Dash Dogs opened a couple of years ago as a “fun project” for the owners, who own a seafood restaurant down the street. They sold hot dogs with different toppings and had lots of customers after the bars closed (who doesn’t like to eat junk food when they’re drunk?!) and started adding in sliders (bite-sized burgers) after eight months or so because they were sick of eating hot dogs all the time (I don’t blame them). The restaurant is bite-sized itself with only a couple of stools and some standing room, but the place is very cute…and how long can you stay somewhere eating a hot dog, anyway? The toppings are all listed on the mirror:

We both ordered the dash combo, which is one slider, one hot dog, and a soda, for $7 (you can pick any toppings, too). I picked the Infamous Stoned, which came with chili, cheese wiz, and crushed fritos.

and a slider with avocado:

The hot dog was pretty delicious, especially with the cheez wiz and fritos (what a nice touch). I can imagine how long the lines get after the bars close because this would definitely hit the spot. The slider was okay, but nothing special (maybe I picked the wrong topping. Next time I’d try something with the garlic aioli). Chris’ hot dog just had sauerkraut (nothing fancy) and his slider had cheese and sauteed onions:

Overall, I think the place was really cute and the owners were all really nice and talkative, and I think I’d stop by again when I’m on the LES. Go check it out!

why do they call it a slider? does it have something to do with the kind of #2 it causes.. you new yorkers are so gross.
