From the decor to the menu, everything at DAWG PARK is created with dog lovers in mind. The restaurant is decked out like a mock dog park, complete with artificial turf, patio swings and murals of pups. Of course, families are invited to bring their own (well-behaved) furry friends to dine in with them. 

The menu offers creative takes on American comfort foods like hot dogs, burgers, salads and chicken sandwiches, including vegetarian substitutions. Each dish is served in a dog bowl, perfect for messy little eaters, or for anyone who wants to really chow down. 

The next time your stomach is howling, swing by DAWG PARK and try one of these drool-worthy meals.

Pawsome Apps

Start your meal by sharing a pawsome appetizer. Fans are barking about the Hot Motz —fried mozzarella sticks with a special dry rub. The Poppin’ Pierogi is another kid-friendly plate with traditional meat, potato and cheese pierogi. 

For The Puppers

Finding options for kids can be ruff at some restaurants, but not at DAWG PARK! Little puppers can chow down on mini bagel dawgs, chicken nuggets, mac ‘n’ cheese or make their own combo. 

Dogalicious Dawgs

Now that the pups have ordered, it’s time for the big dogs to eat! 

Choose from beef, smoky pork or veggie dogs, then pick your toppings. You can’t go wrong with a traditional Chicago dawg, but if you’re feeling adventurous, there are some creative Asian-fusion and Polish-inspired options to try. Go for the Ninja Dawg — a tempura-battered dawg of your choice, topped with sriracha ranch sauce, teriyaki, wasabi mayo avocado, onions, Applewood bacon crumbles, toasted garlic and chili flakes — or tone it down a notch with the Thai chili sauce, grilled bell peppers, toasted garlic and chili flakes that come on the Thai California Dawg. 

Slobbery Sausages, Sammiches and Barking Burgers

Not a dawg person? Don’t worry, DAWG PARK still has plenty of delicious options sure to satisfy. Enjoy Chi-town classics like Polishes, brats or beef and sausage combos. 

If you want to get messy with your meal, go for the BBQ pulled pork. If you prefer chicken, the chicken sandwiches range from plain to crazy curry and buffalo bleu. 

Bow Wow Bowls

Prim and proper pups that prefer a non-messy meal out of a bowl will enjoy the Bow Wow Bowls. Start with either white rice or diced potatoes, then enjoy plated versions of some of the restaurant’s most popular menu items, like the Teriyaki Ranch, Crazy Curry or Lemongrass Chicken Bowls.
