A light drizzle fell as I drove on South Monroe Street. Sliding through midday traffic I saw my destination, Dog Et Al. Tallahassee’s cravings for hot dog has been satisfied by this small eatery for years, and as I pulled into the parking lot I passed a bright yellow sign featuring a smiling hot dog wearing a green bowtie and hat pointing a white cane into the air.
I walked into the restaurant and was greeted by a friendly man behind the counter wearing glasses and a hat. He asked if I knew what I wanted, and I took a minute to weigh my choices. The menu at Dog Et Al was divided into two sections, the proletariat “Down to Earth Dogs” and the fancier “Uppity Dogs.” The former includes various sizes of franks and corndogs while the latter consist of turkey dogs, Italian sausage, and bratwurst. Numerous toppings, such as cheese, chili, slaw, or sauerkraut can be added for no additional charge. All hot dog selections can be made a combination meal which comes with a drink, chips/fries, and an apple pie. For more on Dog Et Al read the full review at Tallahassee.com
