One restaurant in my rotation that I try to frequent probably a few times a year is Dog N Shake. It’s one of those restaurants that’s not for everybody, but if you love it, you really love it. I’d say, it’s one of those guilty pleasures I have that’s also part nostalgia for me. We used to live by the south Hillside location, so I have many memories of frequenting them for lunches and dinners throughout my life.

For my most recent visit, I was craving a double dog meal. It was the spur of the moment decision as I was right by their west Maple store. The slaw dog just happened to be the hot dog of the month. I went with that and a chili slaw dog for my second one. Of course, no visit to Dog N Shake is complete without a shake, especially if you’re ordering dogs. To complete my meal, I paid the upcharge to get a strawberry shake instead of a regular drink.
The toasted buns on the hot dog really did it for me. I loved the texture that it provided to go with the hot dog. The fries can sometimes be hit-and-miss, but ketchup and their endless selection of mustards can help.
The thing about Dog N Shake is they really don’t do anything great, just good enough to keep me satisfied and coming back for more.
Big props though to the staff on West Maple. They were all friendly and energetic, which I loved. I’ll definitely be back again in the future.
Here’s their menu:
