Respond to Review of Happy Dog - Gordon Square District

Review: March 2014 UPDATE: I recently went three times in three days in town, and am happy to say that I loved it all three times, and found it much tastier than I did before. The vodka sauerkraut is better than the Yuengling sauerkraut used to be, the Alien relish tastier (still the same weird St. Patrick's Day green), the vegan chili topping had more kick, etc. Still dirt cheap at $5 for a vegan dog with unlimited toppings, and $3 for tots or fries (plus $1 per topping, but free unlimited dipping sauces.) Yes, there is a ton of meat. But you can ask for the vegan and vegetarian menu decoder list, and there are LOTS of delicious vegan options. Vegans definitely aren't an afterthought here. The atmosphere is hipster working class bar. Around 15-20 beers on draft, a full bar, and almost always a lot of people. Do check the hours before you go: most weekdays they don't open until 4pm. (IIRC, Friday through Sunday are the only days they open for lunch.) I've left my original review below. I'll keep going back! === OLD REVIEW: This is a fun, beautiful bar that serves hot dogs, including vegan Field Roast dogs, with a ton of available toppings. Unfortunately, while it's fun, the actual taste was kind of underwhelming. And for the toppings I got on my field roast ($5, with as many toppings as you want) it shouldn't have been so... blah. I got: Yuengling sauerkraut habernero pickled onions caramelized onions sport peppers "alien" pickle relish (BRIGHT green, not sure what else) Jamacian jerk mustard mojo With all this, it should have been full of flavor, right? Well, it wasn't. It was fine, tasty enough, but really pretty underwhelming for taste. You check off boxes for toppings that you want on an order sheet which the bartender or server takes back to the kitchen, and amazingly quickly, your food comes out. The "vegan menu" is actually a sheet which indicates which of the available toppings are vegan (and GF, etc.) I'll try uploading a picture. Great draft beer selections, with lots of local, Ohio, and upper Midwest represented. I'd certainly go back, but probably wouldn't out of my way again.
