We celebrated Andy’s mom’s birthday last weekend with tater tots, friends and shuffleboard at Happy Dog.
The menu here is simple: hot dogs, french fries and tots … along with dozens of not-so-simple toppings and sauces. You can choose from the usual (house-made ketchup) to the weird (vegetable chow mein) to the out of this world (alien pickle relish — it’s neon green!).
I think tots are the perfect conduit for dipping sauces, and you can try as many as you want! The chipotle hollandaise is my favorite.
Everyone had such a great time. Happy Dog is a gem, and we’re so lucky to have special places like this in Cleveland.
