Love this place! - Edit

I've been going here since 2012 (pre vegan) and loved it!
When I went vegan in 2016, I obviously couldn't eat here anymore. Several months ago, they posted on facebook about vegan hot dogs and I knew I had to try!!
They usually have a different vegan option as one of their specials, as well as regular vegan dogs on the menu. Maria and the rest of the team are so kind and accommodating! A hot dog place is the last place I'd ever expect to have something for me to eat, but Mad Dogs is where it's at! Definitely give this place a try, vegan or not!

Pros: friendly staff, great food, lots of options

Cons: only outdoor seating

Great vegan options! - Edit

I went with my family. I am a vegan and my family is not. I had a vegan Chicago style hot dog. It was perfection. My husband, my kids, and my mom all loved their selections. The owner, Maria was so excited about her many vegan options. I tried her vegan chili and I was blown away! I don't live on the West coast of Florida, but I look forward to my next visit so I can try more lovingly crafted vegan treats!

Mad Dog Hot Dogs - Edit

Yesterday I had the "Reuben Hot Dog." A vegan hot dog with loads of sauerkraut on it, one strip of vegan bacon, and mustard on a traditional hot dog bun. Price $5.25. Very friendly helpfulstaff. Very small venue, a few tables to eat at outside in back, shaded by a canopy, facing the Galleria Plaza parking lot. I have to be honest and say vegan hot dogs are not my fav vegan item, but they are really trying to cater to the vegetarian/vegan clientele, and I wanted to give them my patronage for that.

Pros: Specifically vegan options, All vegan "add-ons" like cheese, bacon, mayo, Food fairly well presented.

Cons: Styrofoam containers for the food., Plastic straws., The hot dog bun probably not vegan.

Vegan Options Galore! - Edit

We had tofu dogs with tofu chili- delicious! These people are so friendly and nice; the service was excellent. We were so impressed to find such great vegan options- tofu bacon, vegan cheese, vegan mayo, vegan thousand island, vegan dogs- awesome! They said their vegan business is “booming,” we can see why! We’ll definitely be back every time we visit Venice. Ps- Happy Cow will only allow 4 stars for a non-vegan restaurant, but we give their vegan options five stars for sure!

Pros: vegan dogs, vegan condiments , friendly knowledgeable staff
