Mutt’s Amazing Hot Dogs

· No Comments

When I heard that the owners of Big Truck Tacos (one of Oklahoma City’s best taco places) were opening a hot dog place, I was curious.  They’ve added their own unique spin on the taco, and I wanted to see what they’d do to hotdogs.  My chance came when a friend I hadn’t seen for a few months emailed and wanted to have lunch to catch up.

The first thing I noticed about Mutt’s was that there was almost no space in the parking lot.  Inside the restaurant (which used to be the Sweet Tea Restaurant) was the same: almost wall to wall people!  After standing in line and scoping out the menu on the wall, we decided on our orders.  I went with the corn dog and fries, while my friend got a Liberty Dog (sauerkraut and mustard) and a side of Red Skinned Potato Salad with blue cheese.  The total for our two lunches and two sodas was a little over $17, so Mutt’s isn’t the cheapest place around.  We paid and gave them our names to go with our order.

Then came the challenge of finding a seat.  All of the booths were taken, so we ended up snagging two stools at one of the two big tables that run down the middle of the restaurant.  If you don’t mind sharing your meal with people you don’t know, it can be fun.  Some days, I wouldn’t mind that, but I was there to chat with my friend.   I felt a little uncomfortable talking about personal things with strangers listening in.

The food itself was fairly good.  The corn dog had an interesting spicy taste to it, which wasn’t really bad, just different.  My friend said the sauerkraut was really good, as was the potato salad.  I really liked the fries—they were those greasy fries that you can only find in little hamburger joints, and they were delicious.  I was curious about trying Mutt’s special duck fat fries, which are French fries fried in duck grease.  Unfortunately, the special fryer used for those was down that day. 

The menu at Mutt’s has a lot to offer, and I’m excited about trying a few of their hot dog specialties.  There’s the S’noran Dog that’s wrapped in bacon and topped with chipotle ketchup, binto beans, pico de gallo, and sliced avocado.  The Pitbulll features Serrano, habanero, jalapeno and poblano peppers, and cilantro-lime aioli—talk about one HOT dog!  They have some other interesting offerings other than hot dogs, such as the Fried Frisbee.  It’s fried bologna, tomato, lettuce, mayo, and pepper-jack cheese on Texas toast.  They’ve also got sausage dogs, chicken-fried chicken dogs, spam dogs, falafel dogs, and much, much more.  They even have some interesting drink choices, like tang or Kool-aid.  Their drinks are served in plastic reusable Mutt’s cups, and if you bring them back, you can get a cheaper refill.

Other than the crowds, I really enjoyed Mutt’s.  I definitely recommend it to anyone who loves a good hot dog.  You can browse Mutt’s full menu and read about the history behind the restaurant at http://www.mutts-hot-dogs.com/Mutts_Amazing_Hot_Dogs/Home.html.
