While you can't go wrong with a classic weenie, the Dogfathers themselves are also pretty great at trussing up the basic hotdog on the weekends—in the past, specials have included a pot roast dog and a Guinness-infused bratwurst.We weren't going to rat, but the secret's out: the dons of this family have come up with a hotdog shop fit for a true mobster. (Such as yourself.) Everything about this Marietta eatery pays homage to the classic great American hotdog, the kind that brings back memories of picnics, Little League, campfires, and running around barefoot in the backyard with mustard smeared from ear to ear. (Or was that just us?) And at Dogfather's, that kind of delicious nostalgia is served up with genuine friendliness, simplicity, and affordability... and an RC Cola, if you're really thirsting for the good ol' days.
This place does right by the timeless classic, serving juicy pork and beef dogs topped with chili, mustard and onions. It also offers a couple extra-hearty versions of the dog (yes, by the way, those Wisconsin beer-boiled brats are actually cooked in boiling beer) and healthy alternatives like chicken sausage (this means more room for gravy fries). And while you can't go wrong with a classic weenie, the Dogfathers themselves are also pretty great at trussing up the basic hotdog on the weekends—in the past, specials have included a pot roast dog cooked for seven hours, a Guinness-infused bratwurst and a Philly dog, just to name a few. Remember that whole "nostalgia" thing? Well, you can finish all this up with a moonpie, sundae, or good ol' fashioned banana split (so long as you clean your plate). One bite, and you'll be a made man.
