El Dogg’s Sauces & Grill
12” Jumbo Polish with Ketchup
12” Jumbo Beef Mild Link with El Sauce and Onions
Encountered while browsing the vendors at Last Friday, Just Add Water Street in Henderson, there seems to be little information available on El Dogg’s Sauces & Grill, but based on first impression there is not much to like about the concept in terms of preparedness, taste or cost.
Located along the upper rim of Eateries, not far from a jump house for kids and best found by following the trail of smoke emitted from their open grill, El Dogg’s describes itself as “Home of The Hotdog Sauce” and featuring an angry looking Weiner in their logo the choices consist of just four options, a Burger for $4, 7 inches of Sahlen’s Smoke House Dog for $3 or $7-8 per foot-long plus $1 for each additional topping.
Seemingly a fairly new operation, the Dogs just put on the grill a minute prior to the event’s 6:00pm start and “The Hotdog Sauce” still cold and requiring nearly forty minutes to heat up, it was through a self-admitted first-day clerk and cashier that orders were placed with $17 exchanged for one snappy Polish Dog topped with Heinz from a Bottle plus the Beef Link that would arrive almost fifteen minutes later, neither of them any ‘better’ than a typical Hot Dog while “The Hotdog Sauce” was thin, not particularly meaty and still luke-warm as the hour approached seven o’clock.
ONE STAR: Overpriced, underprepared and not all that good, even for Street Food.
AVOID: Arriving early during the event.
TIP: Conspicuously absent from the Internet even despite being home of “The Hotdog Sauce.”
