What does bacon-topped mac & cheese and Fruit Loops cereal have in common? They're both placed on top of a hot dog together at Gordon Square's Happy Dog, where the American wiener takes center stage. They take toppings seriously, or maybe not so seriously, with specials like The Mobile Home-wrecker (white BBQ sauce, onions, bourbon-baked beans, fries and cheddar cheese). Intrepid (or sane) customers can choose to construct their own from an intimidating list of toppings, including kim chee pickles, "everything bagel" cream cheese and fried eggs. Veggie dogs are on offer, but that's kind of not the point. Tater tots and fries also come with an impressive array of sauce options, best washed down with any of the 20 beers on tap.
