Good Dog was born in 2008, inspired by one girl’s childhood hot dog memories.
The daughter of a Dutch immigrant Father and an Ohio history teacher Mother, the family vacationed throughout America and hot dogs were the mealtime staple. Hot dog shops were most often Mom-n-Pop shops whose menus were geographic and could simply be defined as Americana!
Good Dog’s motto is “Hotdogs for ALL”, grilling all-beef, natural-casing Sabrett’s hot dogs, local Heritage Health Food veggie dogs, hand-cased bratwurst, italian sausage, breakfast sausage and a variety of chicken sausages. All menu items are available vegetarian, we offer vegan options and we offer a “made-without-gluten” menu. Our frites (ok, fries) are hand cut and twice-fried, and we offer a gallery of housemade ketchups. Good Dog salads are fresh and our housemade vinaigrette features our local partner, Olive Chattanooga, as well as homegrown herbs. We bake cupcakes fresh daily and serve the coldest beer in town, including local Chattanooga Brewing Company, on tap. With so much to choose from, not only will you find a new favorite at every visit, you will run into a familiar face in our friendly staff. We are family here; come SIT, STAY and EAT with us!
Good Dog offers great food, focuses on friendly service, has created a funky décor using re-purposed materials, and believes that fast food can be fresh and local. We are located at Coolidge Park on the North Shore. Our atmosphere, food and service suits all ages and our Good Dog Go carts are perfect for catering your events.
