I usually don't go for dogs when I'm in town, but walking over to Armstrong park, it sounded like a great snack idea. It's not a snack, it's a gut full of the tastiest dogs I've ever encountered. So good I ate 2, (won't try that stunt again) and lived to tell of it.

I went to this place because of it's close location to my room. The dog was pretty good, nothing remarkable. The fries were just average. I thought the price was bit high but not unreasonable I suppose.

Forget street meat, this place has a nice variety of franks, delicious toppings and combination of toppings, and friendly service. Certainly not cheap ($9.00 after taxes) for just the hot dog, but it was delicious. They also offer vegetarian options. Add a side of waffle fries and you're all set.

I'm not a hot dog expert, but I had to say this was some next level stuff. Halal kosher and vegan options in one restaurant! First time ever I think. Eclectic hot dogs that taste brilliant!

Small restaurant on Rampart Street offering big food for a good price. My daughter has visited New Orleans several times and this is the initial go-to spot. In fact, her husband was begging her to bring a veggie dog home for him. The employee who took our order was courteous, friendly and informative. I opted for vegan kielbasa with chili,... More

I can't believe we waited so long to try this place!! The location is really nice right across from the park and on the new Rampart streetcar line, and the inside of the building is great--high ceilings, lots of windows, lots of color, and super clean. Service was the best I've had in quite a while, so I saved the... More

Both the vegan and the normal hotdog were absolutely delicious. The prices are really fair and the stuff is friendly. Also it's clean

I stumbled across this hot dog cafe when walking around the french quarter. It is actually on the northern edge of the classic french quarter, and is about a 5 minute walk from Bourbon street right next to the Louis Armstrong park. It's not often in the South that you find somewhere that specialises in vegan food. Dreamy Weenies had... More

I'd read about this place and just had to try it - great place to stop for lunch or just a snack. The andouille vegan dogs are very tasty - I just stick to ketchup and mustard with a side of waffle fries and it was delicious! The building is great too, right opposite Armstrong Park and a really chilled... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
