Hell Yeah, Hot Dogs - Edit

When The Red Hot use to be in their smaller space next door I think the vibes were more comfortable and genuine. Now that they're in their bigger space it definitely feels like a bro sports bar. In my experience it can also be a little cold/drafty. Even though I miss the authentic Tacoma vibes, I do absolutely adore that they have a bigger vegan section on their menu now! The food is always extremely fast and quality. The North End Not Dog is a classic favorite and their Kommisar dog is divine.

Pros: Fast Service, Awesome Hot Dogs!

Cons: Drafty

vegan hot dogs! - Edit

Clearly labeled vegan menu. Beer-B-Q beans are delicious! Also lots of beers to choose from. They serve vegan options for their Sat/Sun breakfast but I haven’t been. Hot dogs are very good!

Pros: clear vegan menu, low cost

great dogs - Edit

I had the Veganerwurst with a side of beer-b-q baked beans. I'm not a fan of sauerkraut normally, but this dog was really tasty and thankfully the sauerkraut wasn't stinky! The service was really quick and pleasant. The decor was pretty cool inside, with giant chalkboards for their beer menu and lots of tap handles hanging from the ceiling.

didn't know not kid friendly - Edit

I came in here looking for a vegan hot dog for me amd my kids and found this place on happy cow. I just didn't know it was a bar :( that's why I gave it 3 stars. I wish it had like a drive thru window or something then I would go all the time but since it's a bar I won't be going anymore. I need somewhere the whole family can eat, guess it's back to smart dogs in my kitchen.

Pros: like 4 vegan hot dogs on the menu

Cons: not to expensive

Awesome place, what every town needs - Edit

I am headed back there in a few minutes and I can't wait.

Red Hot is right on 6th Avenue in Tacoma. It is a great place to enjoy a variety of vegan hot dogs (there are four very strong options from which to choose) and get a drink (a very large beer menu and root beer on tap and espresso) and watch a baseball game. I can't recommend this place enough.
The service has always been great and having four fun hot dog options where you feel like the vegan options are taken seriously is really great.

Pros: great food options, baseball on television, open late
