Hot Rod Dog

Tucked inside the old West Coast Grocery Co. building across from Union Station, Hot Rod Dog has been a consistent favorite since it opened in March 2005. The counter is one of the things that puts vroom in Hot Rod Dog: It’s fashioned out of the tail end of a 1968 Chevrolet Camaro SS. The other high-octane feature is the dogs themselves: Hot Rod Dog boils quarter-pound kosher beef franks, kielbasa, bratwurst and mozzarella cheese sausage that are made and smoked by Blue Max Sausage Co. in Puyallup.
