Not just another wiener: Find creative bites at Dog Haus

Dog Haus’ Sooo Cali, topped with arugula, spicy basil aioli, crispy onions, avocado and tomato.

Have you noticed? Las Vegas has upped its wiener game with new hot dog haunts across the Valley. The latest is Dog Haus, a hip, casual chain from Pasadena now with a store on Paradise across from the Hard Rock Hotel. Dog Haus serves up playful yet serious eats stacked with creative toppings, piled high on all-beef skinless dogs, sausages, burgers and more.

Dog Haus' Scott Bailoi, topped with smoked bacon, white American cheese, garlic aioli and caramelized onions.

The popular Sooo Cali ($6.99) is a solid choice for starters, with arugula, spicy basil aioli, a mound of crispy onions and hefty slices of avocado and tomato. If you happen to be a Happy Days fan, you’re in luck: Dog Haus offers both the Scott Baioli dog ($6.99), stacked with smoked bacon, white American cheese, garlic aioli and caramelized onions, and the Fonz (7.99), a spicy Italian sausage with pastrami and melted mozzarella. As if the flavor combos weren’t unique enough, all of the dogs, sausages and burgers are served on rows of buttery, grilled-to-perfection King’s Hawaiian Rolls.

The hand-crafted sausages are delectable, with options like the sizzling Another Night in Bangkok ($7.99)—a Thai currywurst loaded with Thai peanut sauce, Asian slaw and crushed peanuts. But the real home run is Dog Haus’ happy hour (Monday-Friday, 3-6 p.m. and daily, 1-4 a.m.), when you can get two-for-one draft beers and canned wine and $1.25 sliders (mini dogs, corn dogs or burgers), French fries and tots. Did we mention the corn dogs are dipped and fried in root-beer batter?

When you’ve finally chosen the right dog, belly up to the bar for a craft beer from Dog Haus’ rotating taps. It’s like being at the ballgame, but better.

Dog Haus 4480 Paradise Road, 702-435-4287. Daily, 11 a.m.-4 a.m.
